A consolidated focus on galleries from Eastern Europe, the participation of almost all leading Viennese galleries, and a compact complementary program make viennacontemporary 2015 one of the highlights of the international fair calendar," Christina Steinbrecher-Pfandt, artistic director of viennacontemporary, states in connection to this yearʼs edition of the event.
"Our commitment to viennacontemporary has not faded. I have a grand vision: viennacontemporary, without a doubt the leading art fair in CEE, stands for mediation between East and West and offers a platform for exchange and discussion.

Today, I can proudly say: our art fair in Vienna is one of the major European platforms for the established art markets of Western Europe as well as for the emerging markets in Eastern, South-Eastern and Central Europe," said Dmitry Aksenov, chairman of viennacontemporary.
