Galerie Gugging Vienna: Lively Lines

Galerie Gugging Vienna: Lively Lines

September 1 – November 7, 2022

Lively Lines, the title of the new exhibition at the Galerie Gugging Vienna (Dominikanerbastei 10) says it all, because this time everything revolves around the theme of lines.


Figure, Arnold Schmidt, 2019. Watercolours, oil crayons, 74.7 x 55 cm


The inspiring impulse came from the upcoming autumn exhibition in Maria Gugging, in which the artist Loys Egg and the Gugging old master Oswald Tschirtner will meet in a very special way.


Human, Rudolf Limberger (Max), 1981. Pencil, 40.1 x 30.1 cm


Curator Irina Katnik puts it in a nutshell:

“Lines have always occupied the Gugging Artists. While Heinrich Reisenbauer positions his motifs accurately side by side and beneath one another, Laila Bachtiar prefers a dense net of lines in her works, with which she builds up her works.”

A mix of exciting artists awaits you with lively lines. What is special about the works is that they are all reduced to the essential.

Works by the versatile artist Loys Egg, whose comprehensive oeuvre ranges from sculptures, installations and drawings to photographs and music, will be presented for the first time. His works will be on display alongside works by Basel Al-Bazzaz, Laila Bachtiar, Fritz Koller, Johannes (Lejo) Lechner, Rudolf Limberger (Max), Heinrich Reisenbauer, Arnold Schmidt, Jürgen Tauscher, Oswald Tschirtner and August Walla.
