MQ Art Box

The MQ ART BOX in the Main Courtyard of MuseumsQuartier Wien is freely accessible every day around the clock, exhibiting temporary installations by contemporary artist.
The transparent art space interacts with the pubic space and the various micro museums in the baroque passages. With its focus on new Austrian art, the MQ ART BOX complements the programmes of the museums and cultural institutions at MuseumsQuartier.

Opening hours: Mon thru Sun: 00:00–24:00

CURRENTLY SHOWING AT MQ ART BOX: SIMILARITIES

Alex Kasses, in collaboration with THISPLAY, places the silhouette of the MQ Libelle in a permanent state of suspension.
The Libelle - a space of possibilities, at once static and dynamic, in permanent transformation by its users. The work 'SIMILARITIES' transforms the Art Box into an interactive body of light, whose content changes according to the visitors' behaviour toward one another and toward the installation itself. While the shape resembles the Libelle, the display is in opposition: dynamic transparent shapes become abstract textures, and physically impossible views emerge. Never the same and continually changing, a space of endless possibilities opens up.
