SUPPAN FINE ARTS, founded in 1974 by Martin Suppan, is a Vienna-based art gallery presenting a selection of contemporary and modern artists. The focus of the gallery program is on Austrian and German contemporary artists, including Hermann Nitsch, Hildegard Joos, Markus Huemer, Michael Ornauer, Florentina Pakosta, Dénesh Ghyczy, and on numerous international modern and post-war artists, such as Herbert Bayer, Rudolf Ray, Auguste Herbin, Victor Vasarely, Hugo Puck Dachinger, Wolfgang Paalen, Lucio Fontana, Arnulf Rainer, Sigmar Polke and Günther Uecker.
In addition to solo exhibitions and major retrospectives, the gallery organizes curated thematic group shows, aiming to establish a dialogue between contemporary artists and selected historical artists from the 20th century, sometimes with artists also outside their exhibition programme.
Since 1974, the gallery has organized over 200 exhibitions, presenting their gallery programme within their various on-site gallery premises as well as off-site, with exhibition projects at the Belvedere 21 Museum, Vienna; Albertina Museum, Vienna; Künstlerhaus, Vienna; Szépművészeti Múzeum, Budapest; Austrian Cultural Forum, New York; Austrian Cultural Forum, London and more.
With SUPPAN EDITION, the gallery runs its own in-house publisher, where over 50 publications, including catalogue raisonnés, artist monographs and art historically complied books, have been published.
After a long history of organizing art historically relevant exhibitions, publishing books and being represented at national and international art fairs, such as Art Cologne and Vienna Contemporary and more, the gallery managed to build trust and a strong network with curators, collectors, museums and artists to help realize important museum exhibitions as well as to take a curatorial and advisory function for corporate and private art collections.
