GALERIE GRITA INSAM (founded in 1971) is one of the most important and notable galleries in Austria. Since the start, the gallery programme has focussed on conceptual art including performances, sound installations, film and video works. Symposia, workshops, lectures and controversial discussions have contributed to the theoretical backbone of the gallery’s programme. Besides the gallery program Grita Insam has been organising exhibitions for museums, alternative spaces, curating projects in public space and has been a regular participant at art fairs like Art Basel (24 years continuously), San Francisco, New York (Armory 01, 02), Art Basel Miami, Art Cologne, FIAC, Art Brussels, ARCO, Art Berlin, Art Chicago, etc. In September 2005 the gallery moved into a new street level space in one of Vienna’s most attended gallery districts.
