FRANZ JOSEFS KAI 3 is pleased to present

Let’s mingle, a group show of young Viennese artists.
Let’s mingle provides a snapshot of the most recent contemporary art from
Vienna. The works of nice young artists, all of who studied or are based in the
city, are divided into three categories: painting, sculpture and photography.
Today’s young artists view the place they live and work very differently from
just a few decades ago. They no longer expect the city or the country where
they are based to have an impact on their artistic practice. We can observe
that in the last decade the art world has extended dramatically and has
become more and more decentralized and multilayered.
The general notion emerged that eachindividual plays a strong role in creating
his or her own artistic locus andreality. Therefore one cannot hope to find
uniformity based on geography. Theartists presented in this show, although
connected geographically, each havetheir own social and creative network; their
unique sphere of international influences and affinities.
All the artists presented in Let’s mingle influence each other, forming an
involuntary communality that represents genuine interpersonal connections.
They are not united by a common impact of the place where they live and
work, but by a mutual respect and interest in each other’s work. The exhibition
shows a constellation of relations and overlappings, frictions and differences
rather than a common theme or generational overview. The exhibition refrains
to judge, unify, or present a priori views in favor of a genuinely pluralistic
