Gemäldegalerie der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien

Nach umfassender Sanierung und Modernisierung ist die Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien, somit auch die Räumlichkeiten der Gemäldegalerie, im Sommer 2021 an den Schillerplatz zurückkehrt.
In der Gemäldegalerie wird dies mit der großen Eröffnungsausstellung Hungry for Time (noch bis 30. Januar 2022) gefeiert, für die das international tätige Kurator_innen-Trio Raqs Media Collective aus Neu-Delhi eingeladen wurde, die historischen Sammlungen der Akademie – Gemäldegalerie, Kupferstichkabinett und Glyptothek – aus einer externen Perspektive zu befragen und ihre thematischen Neuausrichtungen durch den Dialog mit zeitgenössischer Kunst zu begleiten.
