>WHO WILL WE HAVE BEEN?<
For the exhibition for OK.kunZT, Veronika Dirnhofer has created several 2.40-meter-high works on paper that float suspended on various levels in the building. During the painting process, the artist was inspired by thinking about – and feeling into – the layers of landscapes.
With the inaugural exhibition >Falling (for)<, the artist Raphaela Riepl occupies the space and the large window areas facing the public space for six months with an installation of colored light objects suspended from the ceiling.
OK creates a new venue for contemporary art: OK.kunZT gives art space, brings the imagination into play and opens the spacious company premises to interested parties.
Art is an important supporting force in our society. It fires the imagination, holds up a mirror to us, provides us with pleasure but also critical food for thought. OK.kunZT, in cooperation with Galerie3, turns the company headquarters into a cultural venue for Klagenfurt and Carinthia: the art interventions, which change every six months, are visible through the large front windows.
In addition, the exhibitions are open to the public during business hours as well as on special occasions (Long Night of the Museums).
A common feature of the invited artists: among other things, they develop projects for art on buildings and public space, they intervene, stage and think big.
