For our last Saloon of the year we met in the “Vertikale Galerie” of the Verbund Collection. Director Gabriele Schor and her assistant curator Julia Hürner gave us a private tour through their current exhibition “Louise Lawler – She´s here”, the very first solo show by the artist in Austria - the Verbund owns the largest collection of Lawler works in the world! We learned about the main focusses of the Verbund collection, how and why Gabriele Schor acquires works and what the term “feminist avant-garde”, which she invented, means to/for her. She told us about her career and how she could build up the collection in the early 2000´s.
It was an evening of very vibrant discussions. We again want to thank Gabriele Schor and Julia Hürner for this amazing tour and for hosting us! After the tour we met some more Saloonistas at the “Christkindlmarkt am Hof”, we had one or the other warming Glühwein, good and fun conversations until we finally ran away from the rain.
2019 get ready for us!
