The exhibition Indepainted II by artepari is once more offering  original insights into contemporary young Austrian painting, which   having long overcome struggles between abstraction and representation,  modernism and conceptualism  is presenting itself versatile and free  from dogmas. Out of its art historical tradition it has, however,  retained the belief in two important cornerstones: first, each artist  has to develop their own position and claim it for him or herself.  Thus, a broad range of individual positions has emerged and is being  developed simultaneously and autonomously beyond particular schools,  movements or cities. Second, a painting is never simply a painting but  always represents the idea of a painting, too. Frank Stella once  pointed out the two main problems in painting: to find out what  painting is, and to find out how to do painting. The exhibition  Indepainted II will provide exclusive insight into how this is  currently being done in Austria.

Duration of the exhibition:
26 January 2012 to 20 March 2012
