Information

Under the umbrella term Exhibit, the exhibition area of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna is concerned with enabling teachers, students and alumni_ae to engage in diverse practices of exhibiting, as well as to reflect on exhibitions as a medium. With the program of its three exhibition spaces, the exhibition area of the Academy strives to operate at the interface of academic teaching and exhibition practice. At the same time, it presents the Academy’s contemporary production of knowledge and art to the general public.

Exhibit Gallery

In addition to the diploma presentations, the Exhibit Gallery at Schillerplatz hosts exhibition projects that refer to topics discussed at the academy and thereby take up current trends in contemporary art. Attention is paid to the fact that the projects develop out of the teaching activities of the institutes and departments or are designed as epoch-spanning collaborations between the art collections of the Academy and its contemporary art production. The focus is on positioning students and their works in a contemporary art context and on giving graduates the opportunity to collect experience in exhibiting.

Exhibit Eschenbachgasse

Exhibit Eschenbachgasse offers teachers and researchers at the Academy the opportunity to use the exhibition space for their projects for a maximum of three weeks. The space thus sees itself as a field of experimentation for an expanded teaching and research practice and brings exhibition making into view as a special artistic field of action. Exhibit Eschenbachgasse is also used for collaborative projects.

Exhibit Studio

Exhibit Studio at Schillerplatz is the exhibition space for students of the Academy. For one academic year at a time, the space is programmed and coordinated by alternating student employees. It offers students the opportunity to exchange ideas across their specific studios, to test various exhibition formats and to gain initial experience in curating and organizing exhibitions.
