This event has ended.

This spring, the Austrian Cultural Forum New York is launching its new project, OPEN SPACE UNCURATED, as an annual event.

For one month, young Austrian artists living in the USA and working in a variety of genres will show works on the theme of CREATIVE MIGRATION at the Austrian Cultural Forum. The common thread is an exploration of the motivations and reasons that prompted these artists and creators to choose the USA as a creative environment.

Migration has always been an important social parameter in the USA, and in Austria as well. Cities like Vienna and New York both owe their unique charm
and cultural attraction to their reputation as a melting pot.

As the title OPEN SPACE UNCURATED indicates, the exhibition part is conceived without any curatorial intervention. More than thirty artists from various disciplines responded to the Cultural Forum's call for contributions and submitted their projects. An expert jury including artists, art managers, musicians and academics, was assigned the task of selecting the most interesting works for potential interdisciplinary collaboration.

The objective of the OPEN SPACE UNCURATED project is to break away from museum-style exhibition patterns by giving the artists as much freedom as possible to present their work according to their own ideas.
