MAUVE is an artist run space based in Vienna, Austria. Since the inaugural show in 2012, MAUVE’s mission has been to explore experimental ways of curating, thereby connecting the artistic scene in Vienna to the rest of the world. Always closely collaborating with the artists involved in the exhibitions, MAUVE strives to bring artistic production, discourse and various modes of curating closer together. The MAUVE team creates their program in relationship to their own artistic practice. MAUVE is Daniel Ferstl, Titania Seidl and Lukas Thaler.
The show MAUVE developed for Club Pro, L.A. deals mainly with the idea of the series. It will contain works by Maria Cozma, Harm van den Dorpel, Daniel Ferstl, Titania Seidl, Lukas Thaler, Rita Vitorelli and Eugen Wist. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fanzine including commissioned texts by Paul Becker, Birke Gorm and Nicholas Hoffman.
The project is kindly supported by the The Arts and Culture Division of the Federal Chancellery of Austria and the Austrian Consulate General, Los Angeles.
