‘POWER UP’ in Vienna for International Women’s Day

March 8 is the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. To celebrate, Kunsthalle Wien — which has extended the exhibition “POWER UP – Female Pop Art” through today — will feature a special midday program: POWER LUNCH, a guided tour of the show by curator Angela Stief.

Later in the day, Ursula Leitgeb and Hafize Gültekin will offer another guided tour of the exhibition (in German, with translation into Turkish) with the title “Vorsicht, Emanzipation kann Ihre Befindlichkeit nachhaltig verbessern!” (“Warning: Emancipation can produce a lasting improvement in your mood!”).

If you’re in Vienna and would like to register for the POWER LUNCH tour, contact Isabella Drozda at +43-1-521 89-1255 or kunstvermittlung@kunsthallewien.at. (Admission is € 5, which includes snacks following the tour.) For more information (also in German) about either event, visit the Kunsthalle Wien web site.

Finally, if you aren’t in Vienna or just can’t make it to the show today, don’t panic. “POWER UP – Female Pop Art” will also be appearing at Phoenix Art/Stiftung Falckenberg (in cooperation with Deichtorhallen Hamburg) from 19 April – 10 July, and at the Städtische Galerie Bietigheim-Bissingen from 23 July – 9 October.
