The exhibition department of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna strives to operate at the interface between universitarian artistic-scholarly research, the development of the arts, endeavors to make the arts accessible, and the international field of art. To accomplish this purpose, the exhibition space xhibit was opened opposite the Paintings Gallery in the main building of the Academy on Schillerplatz in 2010. With this space (which will be located on the corner of Eschenbachgasse and Getreidemarkt from January 2019 during the general refurbishment of the Academy), the format xhibit, the xposit series of exhibitions, and the presentations of the students’ final works, the Academy offers a platform for an experimental, thought-through and critical exhibition practice in the universitarian context. This practice is to complement and extend the various departments’ teaching contents and methods, support the Academy’s alumni, and contribute to the discussion of current artistic and social issues.
