Mario Mauroner Contemporary Art SALZBURG was founded in 1972 by Mario & Waltraud Mauroner (at the time the gallery was still named Galerie Academia). After 30 years of international experience and realization of more than 400 exhibitions and participation in international art fairs – e.g. ARCO, BASEL, BRUSSELS, COLOGNE, DUBAI, FIAC – in 2004 an additional 1100 m2 exhibition space on two levels was opened in Vienna, offering spectacular room for the presentation of large-scale sculpture – one of the gallery's main focuses. Building a second point of interest, the gallery’s program is also dedicated to a range of outstanding and international contemporary artists, especially from the Mediterranean area, whose common ground is a steady progression of their respective creative work, developed independently of current trends. Aside from the Ground Floor and Basement galleries, the newest addition to Mario Mauroner Contemporary Art VIENNA is our roomnumberOne, which is exclusively dedicated to young emerging artists.
