The Albertina Contemporary is an exhibition of 120 "best" works picked from Albertina’s assortment of contemporary art.
The collection features works from selected number of artists such as Gerhard Richter, Georg Baselitz, and Arnulf Rainer.
The collection of Albertina’s contemporary art is always increasing as the gallery pursues its interest in the specific field.
The exhibition will only last until 19 August and is worth a visit, as it provides a great overview of contemporary art in Austria.
