Open Call: Kunstpavillon & Neue Galerie Innsbruck | Tyrolean Artists‘ Association



The Tyrolean Artists’ Association is a forum for art in Tyrol. It is a non-profit, politically independent association of fine artists in and from Tyrol. Currently, the association has just under 360 members. The purpose of the association, which has existed since 1946 and is based in Innsbruck, is to represent and support fine artists and their cultural, economic and social interests.

The Tyrolean Artists’ Association runs the Kunstpavillon, the Neue Galerie Innsbruck, and Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen. While the main focus of the Kunstpavillon and the Neue Galerie is on exhibition activities, Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen provides studios for artists living in Tyrol and hosts the Fellowship Programme for Art and Theory. In addition, for 14 years the association has been in charge of the Province of Tyrol’s campaign Art in Public Space. Through its various activities, the Tyrolean Artists’ Association promotes the instigation of qualified discourses on art and society in a local and global context. Another equally important task of the association is the representation of artists’ professional interests: the Tyrolean Artists’ Association plays a leading role throughout Austria in promoting fair pay for all those working in the arts sector (Fair Pay Agenda).

The exhibition program for the Kunstpavillon and the Neue Galerie is put together in the main by a jury of art professionals, selecting from submissions received in response to an open call. The call is sent to members of the association as well as to national and international artists and curators. The jury of professionals includes board members and the managing director/curator of Kunstpavillon and Neue Galerie Innsbruck.

Exhibition projects for the year 2023 can be submitted until 10.06.2022 via the online platform on the homepage of the Tyrolean Artists’ Association or by sending it through the post (Tiroler Künstler*innenschaft, Kunstpavillon, Rennweg 8a, 6020 Innsbruck – Austria). Artists and curators from all artistic disciplines, media and practices are eligible to participate.
