We change the perception of Contemporary Art
ART 9TEEN is a cooperation between the Viennese entrepreneur and art collector Alexander Varvaressos and the art collector and art dealer Thomas Emmerling, who is the initiator and director of the Michelsberger Kunsthaus 7B in Transylvania.
ART 9TEEN is a new concept that will delight many. Much more than an Art gallery – a Private Art Club on the one hand, event space on the other, ART 9TEEN combines the best of both worlds. Be it a number of aspiring & established artists with international experience who are looking for a fitting setting within the right context in a dignified atmosphere, the company that wants to hold press conferences or training courses surrounded by art or small private companies that wish to enjoy their private dinees surrounded by masterpieces want to get to show just some of the possibilities of ART 9TEEN.
ART 9TEEN – Vienna’s Private Art Club, located in the heart of Vienna’s 19th district, makes this possible for the first time.
ART 9TEEN – Our curatorial concept
The moment that you are creating in our space is the artwork!
by Thomas Emmerling – Curator of ART 9 TEEN
ART 9TEEN combines different aspects of lifestyle as selected fine arts, architecture, fine dining, privacy, time and luxury moments. Therefore our curatorial concept is as free as a luxury lifestyle is. In opposite to a classical portfolio gallery, who is developing its artists, ART 9TEEN is a place to experience exceptional moments, in an esthetic atmosphere. The moment that you are creating in our space is the artwork!
First of all, we are a private arts club. When you arrive in Vienna, you can pay us a visit and enjoy our latest exhibition, meet interesting people as collectors, advisors and curators, discuss about art, collecting, investment and enjoy a drink. When you are residing in our neighbor-hood, searching for some cultivated discussions, new artworks or you are collecting art by passion, you are welcome!
Our monthly meet-up is the main platform, but as well element of the curatorial concept.
This policy of open-doors and friendship amongst art-connoisseurs influences mainly the artistic concept. It follows a line, which combines both, international well established artists, who might pay us even a visit during their stay in Vienna, and upcoming and emerging artists, who had been selected on the base of their artistic position: Figurative, lyrical abstract and conceptual. The positions allowing explore as well individual psychological encounters in people to people contacts, as well on a larger scale growing into socio-political narratives. As a mirror of the diversity of our society, we always try to bring cultural traditions from the East and the West, from the North and the South into dialog. It inspires and our friends and guests to deep discussions and enables everyone to discover new perspectives and broaden the own horizon.
Recently, we are not accepting unsolicited applications by artists to expose their works. In case that we are thinking, we would like to expose works, we are discussing with you, the collectors and owners of the works, as well as from time to time with artists as well.
