Artists in Residence

Collaborating with Q21 (MuseumsQuartier), we invite several artists each year to exhibit and work in Vienna for one to two months. The Artist-in-Residence program at Q21 fosters international, project-related exchange and is financed with the aid of private sponsors. Each year, the program is able to invite about 40 artists from other countries to realize joint projects with the resident cultural initiatives on location, consequently promoting the establishment of international networks.
