Who We Are…

INOPERAbLE is an art space that deals with Contemporary Urban Culture with a focus on Street Art, a topic not often dealt with in Vienna. Street Art is a broad definition for a contemporary art movement which takes place outside in the open space. Street Art came out of the Graffiti movement of the 70’s in New York and other major cities. In general Street Art deals mostly with Stickers, Posters, Stencils, Sculptures, Graffiti and Installations that are spread with different mediums such as Spraypaint, Brushes, Markers, or Glue. The art form has fairly few borders but what is most important is originality, creativity, and staying active.

Street Art is being embraced in every major city by the Art community, galleries, and by museums like the Tate Modern or the MoMA. Auction Houses like Sotherbys have seen Art works from the Street reaching record prices.

The INOPERAbLE Gallery was founded as a project and Studio space in January 2006 but moved and reopened in September of 2008 at Burggasse 24, 1070 Vienna. Since its inception the gallery has shown over 100 artists including C215 (fr), Die Made (at), Lastplak (nl), Busk (at), Nychos (at), Christian Eisenberger (at), Aryz (sp), ACC (us), Permanent Unit (at), Tika (cz), and Ghostpatrol (au).

Besides presenting and selling original works, limited edition books, posters and other merchandise from Street Artists, the gallery functions as an information and contact platform in the scene and quasi as a management for its artists for co-operations with business or cultural institutions. The INOPERAbLE team Nathalie Halgand and 401RUSH (aka Nicholas Platzer) advise, conceptualize, exhibit, organize and sell.

Through their various activities INOPERAbLE hopes to broaden the awareness and social consciousness in Vienna towards this already internationally recognized art form.
