1010 Vienna, Felderstraße 6–8
Since 1987, young artists working in Vienna have had the opportunity to present their work to the public in the form of solo exhibitions. Since 2022, the Startgalerie has been a stage for young curators. A space for experimentation, it gives them a chance to realize their ideas in collaboration with local artists. In this way, the Startgalerie serves both as an anchor for contemporary art in Vienna and to promote new curatorial positions.
In February 2022 Art against the Status Quo. Interventions in Public Space was on show - the first of two exhibitions by Curatorial Fellows of the Wien Museum, followed by Have a Seat! The Park bench as Social Sculpture in July 2022. The new series now continues with the winners of the 2021 Open Call. Twenty proposals were submitted and a jury selected four of them for the MUSA Startgalerie program which will last until the end of 2024. Nika Kupyrova’s exhibition in the fall of 2023 Dispatches from a Troubled City. The City as a Novel marked the beginning. It is now followed by Avanti Dilettanti. On the challenges of failure by Daniela Hahn and Andrea Lehisak.
