“What young painterly positions are to be discovered in Austria? The Essl Museum poses this question this year within the framework of its annual focus on young art. Among the Essl Museum’s most important collection and exhibition emphases is Austrian art after 1945. What is more, the collection as well as the exhibition programme reveal a great passion for painting. Despite all the negative predictions, painting is more alive than ever and is still one of the essential media in contemporary art. Therefore, it is of particular interest to explore how painting is developing in the young Austrian art scene.
The criteria for application will be announced at the beginning of 2014 and will be published on the Essl Museum’s home page. Based on the applications, the curators of the Essl Museum will draw up a shortlist and visit 40 to 50 artists in their studios in person. From these, some 15 positions will be selected for the exhibition. The exhibition’s curator is Günther Oberhollenzer.” (Text source: ESSL Museum)
