Invitational Art Fair
Bad Gastein has established itself as an art destination with international visitors, 60 artists over the last years of it‘s residency program and 500+ artworks created.
Since the summers in the city get hotter each year, the travel to far flung places is no longer a sustainable option and the mega-art fairs all look and feel the same: Let‘s revive the Sommerfrische, the old European concept of spending the hot summer months in the cool mountains, but make it Art.
For the first edition in 2022, art:badgastein invites emerging galleries to present international contemporary artists in the historic former power plant, Kraftwerk, and in the public space. For gallery owners, Bad Gastein offers time and space to present their exhibitions and to engage with collectors and visitors.
