YACA Young Austrian Contemporary Art & Counterparts worldwide 2008 – 2021 – Cancelled

For safety reasons the exhibition showcasing Styrian art has been cancelled. This year unfortunately, there will be no Zu Gast am Schlossberg/ Visiting Schlossberg Mountain I am afraid. Any other exhibitions in the Bell Tower are not related to the series nor myself.

The exhibition YACA (Young Austrian Contemporary Art) & Counterparts worldwide created for the Bell Tower Liesl for April 2021 will comprise and showcase a collection display of Contemporary Austrian Art with focus on the region Styria surrounding Graz and international counterparts that have been collected by myself over the course of the period 2008 until 2021.

Coinciding with the travel to New York from 3rd May until 17th of May 2021 my curatorial selection presents works by Styrian artists Daniel Hafner, Clemens Hollerer, Marlene Hausegger, Roswitha Weingrill & Marko Lulic as artists from Austria and a limited edition print titled Sketch for Two Way Mirror/ Hedge Arabesque, 2013 by Dan Graham as a counterposition for international art from the US to mark an arch between Graz, Austria and our temporary office in New York. Symbolising the prolonging of our office in Baker Street in London, these two works of the collection will travel to subsequently in June 2021.

The showcasing of the work Queen Beatrix, 2008 by Clemens Hollerer, who was the first artist I collected coming from upper Styria marks the beginning of my collecting Styrian art and working with artists from the region Styria surrounding the City of Graz and presents this work first shown in the Netherlands in the crowning hall of the then still regent Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands.

Dan Graham’s exhibition Dan Graham – Contemplation in February 2019 in the Kitchen Gallery in Graz, Austria marks my collection endeavour of international art from the US that originally started with collecting the limited edition video work You called me Jacky by Pipilotti Rist in 2013 at Walther Koenig Book Store at Art Basel.

The counterposition of the Austrian artist Clemens Hollerer as one of the first artists I collected and referring back to the exhibition Dan Graham – Contemplation draw the attention to engaging with art in today’s time locally but at the same time being carried out into the world which was marked by the opening of my office in London last year in October 2020 showcasing the exhibition Paintings Painted/ Malerei Gemalt in November 2020.

Taking time and pause as Contemplation implies by engaging with contemporary art without concerns of our daily life. Like in the previous two exhibitions in 2020, I will continue to provide access to the Bell Tower during the exhibition period only on a very limited basis for families or small groups of people at a time.

The Schlossberg Mountain per se provides a possibility to take time away from the hectic city centre to pause from our day-to-day routine and nearly feel on a holiday by taking the walk uphill towards the Bell Tower Liesl that by means of the heritage surroundings allows for creation of the feeling of being in a remote place as I most recently wrote in the limited edition art book series Horizon & Time Jump on the work of Alfredo Barsuglia published in 2020, which will be presented coinciding with the exhibition opening.

It is not necessary to register but waiting time might occur when groups arrive at the same time. From last year’s experience however, it can be said that this rarely incurs a long waiting time or allows for a short introduction to the art on display by myself as curator of the exhibition and art collector of the AØH Art Collection Haberz.

For a more in-depth guided tour please register under my mobile phone no. +43 664 182 8678 or under dhaberz@artconsultancyhaberz.org The guided tours and access to the exhibition is free of charge, the works on display serve as recommendations for acquisitions of contemporary Austrian art but will not be for sale.

We would like to thank our long-term sponsor Real Estate Department of the City of Graz for their continuing support and the Miles Christie Trust for the loan of the works.

YACA (Young Austrian Contemporary Art) & counterparts worldwide going New York May 2021

In May 2021 we will travel to New York for an exhibition of Austrian contemporary Art under the title YACA (Young Austrian Contemporary Art) & counterparts worldwide going New York May 2021 which will be showcasing visual artists in a temporary office of the AØH Art Consultancy Haberz e.U. and Limited in Hudson Yards in New York City.

The exhibition series YACA (Young Austrian Contemporary Art) & counterparts worldwide has been developed in 2008 to promote Austrian Contemporary Art internationally and counter-position emerging contemporary artists with internationally renowned artists to increase the value of their art and allow for them to live of their artistic practise. After extensive exhibitions in a small gallery space in the centre of the City of Graz in Austria from 2008-2012 and since 2015 in the Bell Tower on Schlossberg Mountain artists are provided the possibility to create new installations especially for this heritage protected building. 

Last year in November 2020 the first international exhibition took place in London in our Baker Street office under the title Paintings Painted/ Malerei Gemalt going London 2020 which showcased art from Austria focusing on the region Styria surrounding Graz, Austria and three international positions Reiner Heidorn, Kathrin Weber and Tonino Gottarelli in collaboration with the Fondazione Tonino Gottarelli, curated by Daniela Haberz, M.A. for the Bell Tower Liesl and AØH Art Consultancy Haberz Limited in London.

Artists who wish to participate in the New York exhibition can write to me under my 
e-mail address: dhaberz@artconsultancyhaberz.org and send their portfolios including CV (no more than 5 MB in total) of which I will make a curatorial selection to be displayed in New York from 3rd to 17th of May 2021 in the office in Hudson Yards, located five minutes walking distance away from the Frieze Art Fair location, the Shed in New York City,  taking place at the same time as the fair.

Last year in October 2020 in London, the Frieze Art Fair, had a satellite gallery programme even though the actual art fair was cancelled, Frieze Week took place. galleries in New York will be visited by myself in my role as a Wealth Adviser for Art as Investment in real life in addition to the exhibition curated by myself, independently to the art fair to engage in discussion about Contemporary Art from Austria and the artists on show in New York galleries I work with as Wealth Advisor for Art as Investment.  If you would like to join please R.S.V.P. under: dhaberz@artconsultancyhaberz.org or my mobile phone: +43 664 182 8678

The artists selected to participate will be asked to pay a fee to contribute to the costs incurred in realisation of the project which amounts to 300 € for transport cost and rental of the exhibition space, these figures are based on last year’s cost for the exhibition in London, therefore amounting to this sum. For hand-in of portfolios to review there is no charge.

Looking forward to hearing from you and all my best wishes,
