Mark&Julia Fashion Show

As a part of the NENI Art Collectives, the young Viennese fashion label Mark&Julia will be showing their newest Autumn/Winter 2012 collection entitled Hybrid. Creating exquisite pieces tailored to the needs and likes of a true individual with an anti-conformist streak, the designers behind the brand have this time around decided to merge the masculine and feminine, and so present a truly ‘hybrid’ collection. Through mixing soft fluid materials such as silk with more stiff and defined ones, the garments really will have you guessing their gender group. Can’t wait!

MUSA Beauty Contest Exhibition
Image2012|02|16 - 05|26

In cooperation with the Austrian Cultural Forum New York, MUSA in Vienna is putting up an exhibition entitled Beauty Contest, looking into the concept of beauty and its many interpretations. Featuring the works of numerous international artists, this collaborative exhibit strives to present beauty as a cultural phenomenon, guided not only by rigid social rules and criteria, but also by individual freedoms and points of view. The hunger for beauty is indeed in all of us, but what we see as being beautiful differs from person to person, and Beauty Contest shows exactly that!

Madames With a Mission Guest Designer

The team behind madames with a mission are super-excited to present the newest addition to their showroom: it`s the design of Katha Harrer and Michael Ellinger, the creative heads behind km/a. The brand`s upcoming collection for SS2012 has also been chosen by none other than Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana who promote the collections of young, international talents in their Spiga 2 Store in Milan.
The designs by this exciting new label are anything but conformist, which is a point proven by their newest collection constructed from 1960s parachutes and army blankets. Mixing unusual materials with a sense for individualistic fashion, unique dresses, jackets and other garments are born, ready to add that weird coolness to your closet. If there ever was a better and more fashionable way to convince us to recycle, we haven’t heard of it!

Cindy Sherman Exhibition

Image2012|01|27 - 05|16

Cindy Sherman, an exceptional figure in the art scene even today, famous for her conceptualization of feminine portraits centered around dressing up, is certainly an intriguing subject for research.

Available in both English and German, the print version of the selected works is also accompanied by an exhibition entitled That`s Me-That`s Not Me, displaying some 50 pieces from Cindy`s collection.

AAAAR – Artists Activists A(u)ction Against Racism


AAAAR is a group of artists, activists, students, workers and immigrants, who are dedicated to fight the racist and discriminatory laws and regulations which give the foreign citizens, mostly the third-country ones, coming to Austria, a very hard time. AAAAR is particularly focusing on the students coming in, and hopes to ease their transitional experience by raising money to battle the effects of the restricting laws. Organizing an auction (in the frame of this year`s "Open House" at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna) to gain funding for these students, tens of artists are taking part, making for one diverse and desirable collection to be auctioned off. In a world where cosmopolism is at the heart of our society, this is only one small step that should show us the right way for true cultural acceptance.

Another Exhibit
Image While Paris lives and breathes men’s fashion, you might do well to distract yourself, and we suggest you visit the Stefan Sagmeister exhibit. The Austrian artist is a wonderfully talented graphic designer, working in New York for numerous well-known brands as well as music names, producing a diverse collection of works. His exhibition, entitled Another exhibit about promotion and sales material, is focusing mainly on his commercial work but achieves nevertheless to present the visitor with an overall picture of his inspired work. Paris this time a year seems like the best place to visit!
