Mario Mauroner Contemporary Art Salzburg was founded in 1972 by Mario & Waltraud Mauroner (at the time the gallery was still named Galerie Academia). After 30 years of international experience and realization of more than 400 exhibitions and participation in international art fairs, e.g.ARCO Madrid, ART BASEL, ART BRUSSELS, ART COLOGNE, ART DUBAI, FIAC, ART STAGE SINGAPORE – in 2004 – an additional 1200 sqm exhibition space on two levels was opened in Vienna, offering spectacular room for the presentation of large-scale sculpture – one of the main focuses of the gallery. Building a second point of interest, the gallery’s program is also dedicated to a range of outstanding international contemporary artists, especially from the Mediterranean area, whose common ground is a steady progression of their respective creative work, developed independently of current trends. Aside from the Groundfloor and Basement, the gallery in Vienna hosts roomnumberOne, which is exclusively dedicated to young emerging artists. Opened in October 2014, the new space, All About Art, focuses on interdisciplinary projects.
