The STRABAG Artlounge, located on the upper floors of the STRABAG Building in Vienna, is a unique exhibition space. STRABAG employees, business partners and anyone with an interest in art are invited to visit and enjoy the art.
The STRABAG Artlounge is an exciting, fascinating two-story exhibition space. The dining area is integrated on the lower floor; the upper floor houses an information point with numerous catalogues and art magazines. Unlike to the usual sterile white cube, the Artlounge’s glass façade offers a marvelous panoramic view of Vienna. A system of movable internal walls, supplementing the fixed concrete core, allows for versatile configurations of the space. Artists and their works interact with the space, but also assert themselves against it.
Since its opening in 2004, more than 100 exhibitions have taken place in the STRABAG Artlounge: all prizewinners of the STRABAG Artaward International have the opportunity to stage a solo exhibition in the space. In addition, one or two special exhibitions a year show the work of collection artists who are celebrating significant anniversaries, like for example Wolfgang Hollegha, Roman Scheidl, Alfred Hrdlicka, Eduard Angeli, Daryoush Asgar and Elisabeth Gabriel, anselm glück, Franz Grabmayr, Rudolf Hradil, Lisa Huber, Alois Köchl, Valentin Oman, Ahmet Oran, Hans-Peter Profunser, Gottfried Salzmann, Karl Stark, Wolfgang Stifter and Christina Zurfluh. The exhibition Väter_Töchter (Fathers_Daughters) highlighted a special constellation within the collection, presenting the work of four established artists (Peter Krawagna, Gottfried Salzmann, Peter Sengl, Walter Vopava) and their four successful daughters, who have all been awarded with the STRABAG Artaward: Suse Krawagna, Nieves Salzmann, Deborah Sengl and Catharina Vopava. In 2015, the collection’s anniversary year, the exhibition Strich und Faden. 12 Zeichnerinnen (Line and Thread) focused on twelve female artists working in the medium of drawing.
