digital extension. viennacontemporary

A digital extension of viennacontemporary vc_on is the digital extension of viennacontemporary, connecting galleries and art institutions with art aficionados from all over the world.

vc_on extends viennacontemporary in the digital sphere – with viewing rooms, online access to ZONE1, Explorations and VIDEO, and the exclusive Z-Series with young, accessible positions. vc_on’s aim is to highlight Austrian, Central, and Eastern European art, to appeal to new audiences and young collectors, to connect galleries and art aficionados, and to establish lasting relationships.

While experiencing art’s direct presence and interacting with it is essential, vc_on establishes a space for new art in times of physical restrictions. The online extension of viennacontemporary provides galleries unable to attend the fair due to traveling restrictions with a digital presence. vc_on is open to collectors, members of museums, and other art institutions, journalists, and art aficionados from all over the world.

Z-SERIES curated by Francesca Gavin
In addition to the fair and its established audience, vc_on targets new audiences and potential art buyers and collectors, especially young digital natives and up-and-coming creatives. Z-Series is an integral part of vc_on focused on developing new culture-savy audiences. Its selection, exclusively accessible online, offers works of art below a price of 3.000 Euro to emerging collectors and newcomers.

Z-Series is curated by Francesca Gavin, who was a co-curator of Manifesta11 and the curator of exhibitions at Palais de Tokyo and Somerset House and has been building the collection of Soho House over a period of seven years.
