Styrian roots - the search for origins in our collection of contemporary art

Special exhibition 2022

Admont Abbey began to put together its collection of Austrian contemporary artworks in 1997. It was first placed on public display in 2003. It soon became apparent that many of the artists represented in this collection were either born in Styria or had some other form of close connection with this Austrian province.

The collecting strategy employed has never actually been to concentrate on Styrian art. But that so many artists based in or with their origins in Styria play such a prominent role in the Austrian and international art scene is not something that can be simply ascribed to chance. The cultural hub that is Styria has been generating important new national and international directions in the field of the visual arts for decades now. Aware of our long tradition and commitment to variety here in Admont Abbey, it is our intention to contribute as best we can to this development. Come with us and search for the signs of our 'Styrian Roots' in our 2022 exhibition of the most recent collection of the Abbey!

And why not join in the discussion of what pathways the cultural landscape that is Styria should take in future? There are two further highlights that will be on view concurrently with this exhibition in other Abbey institutions: these are the 'artistic intervention' by Heribert Friedl in our Museum of Fine Arts and the works of Nikola Irmer in the Museum of Natural History.
