Vienna, Albertina modern: »The Beauty of Diversity«

The art WORLD is more

From February 16, the ALBERTINA MODERN in Vienna celebrates the diversity of its collection and the diversity of the art world: The Beauty of Diversity focuses on artists who tend to be neglected in the general canon.

This year's spring exhibition at ALBERTINA MODERN is dedicated to the abundance of human creativity and origins: The Beauty of Diversity brings together the beautiful, the grotesque and the repressed. Autodidacts and trained artists from all continents are producing complex art that is well worth seeing, which questions or complements Eurocentric ideals or breaks new ground in unexpected ways. The mixture of exhibits from different decades and continents creates new perspectives on the term »art world«. The exhibition runs from February 16 to August 18 in Vienna.

The ALBERTINA MODERN presents exhibits from the museum's own collection that have been created outside the well-known and much-discussed art canon of famous Renaissance painters and modern artists. The exhibition includes works by Sungi Mlengeya, Amoako Boafo, Verena Bretschneider, the Gelitin group of artists, August Walla, Cindy Sherman, Cecily Brown, Jadé Fadojutimi, Jean Dubuffet, Miriam Cahn, Alexandre Diop and Franz Ringel.Art.Salon
