On 9 April 2019 KRINZINGER PROJEKTE opens the exhibition ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE 2018–a group exhibition of eleven national and international, emerging and already renowned contemporary artists. The exhibiting artists participated in the Krinzinger residency program in Vienna (AT), Petőmihályfa (HU), Kuberton (HR), and Sri Lanka (LKA) in 2018 at the invitation of Dr. Ursula Krinzinger. The exhibited works were created in the course of the respective stays of the participating artists and reflect the different local conditions– ecological, social, cultural or political–coupled with the personal experiences of the artists and their influence on the individual creative processes. The Krinzinger Projekte was founded in 2002 as a project space and extension of the Galerie Krinzinger. Since then, the space has been realising a very successful international program consisting primarily of thematic group exhibitions displaying fresh artistic positions. The artist-in-residence program is intended to offer national and international artists the opportunity to expand their networks and to produce and collect new impressions outside their usual working environment. Previous participants of the program have meanwhile become very successful representatives of important positions in the international art scene.
