Galerie Krinzinger was founded in 1971 by art-historian Dr. Ursula Krinzinger. Since then, she has organized at least 500 exhibitions of national and international artists, mounting solo, group and thematic shows.Read More
The main interest and source of the gallery program stems, on the one hand, from international performance and body related art (Marina Abramovic since 1975, Chris Burden since 1992), on the other hand, from Viennese actionism (Rudolf Schwarzkogler, Günter Brus, Hermann Nitsch, Otto Muehl since 1975). Additionally, the gallery has been working with national and international artists such as Jonathan Meese, Gavin Turk, Eva Schlegel, Mark Wallinger, Thomas Zipp and others for over forty-five years. The latest additions to the gallery program result from Ursula Krinzinger’s research in Asia and the Middle East (Kader Attia, Waqas Khan, Maha Malluh, Sudarshan Shetty, Zhang Ding). This thematic focus has been consequently present since 12 years.
Besides the gallery program, Ursula Krinzinger organizes and curates exhibitions in various spaces outside the gallery, including the gallery's second space: Krinzinger Schottenfeld, which was founded in 2002 as Krinzinger Projekte. Internationally orientated, group and topic exhibitions define the program, which quickly earned an international reputation. Housed in a separate building, Krinzinger Schottenfeld joins Galerie Krinzinger in inviting young national and international artists to take part in the gallery’s artist-in-residence program, which currently includes destinations in Austria, Croatia, Hungary and Sri Lanka.
For more than forty-five years, Galerie Krinzinger has regularly participated in the world's most important art fairs, among them: Art Basel, Arco Madrid, The Armory Show New York, Art Dubai, FIAC, Frieze London, Art Basel Hong Kong, Art Düsseldorf, Art Basel Miami.
