leopold strobl & anna zemánková at this year’s la biennale di venezia

20/04/ - 24/11/24


2024 seems to be the year of Leopold Strobl. The artist was personally selected by Adriano Pedrosa for the exhibition Foreigners Everywhere at the 60th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia. At the invitation of Phileas, the curator visited the galerie gugging last year and was enthusiastic about the oeuvre of the Mistelbach-born artist. Pedrosa’s varied selection of works will be shown at the Biennale Arte 2024 in Venice starting in April. As director of the galerie gugging, Nina Katschnig is pleased about the constantly growing interest in Strobl, who also regularly works in the atelier gugging:

Leopold Strobl has developed his unique, unmistakable style consistently and with passion over the last few decades and I am very pleased that Strobl’s work will now also be honored at this anniversary Biennale Arte 2024 in Venice.

The galerie gugging presented Leopold Strobl to the public for the first time in 2016 as part of the exhibition locomotives beneath a green sky, where a Gugging success story began. Nobody could have guessed back then that within a few years Strobl would not only be purchased by the MoMA in New York for its collection, but will now also be on display at the 60th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia in the 30th year of galerie gugging’s existence. If you would like to dive deeper into the wonderful world of Leopold Strobl, you have the opportunity to do so in our YouTube short film, in which the artist provides exciting insights into the creative process.

The Biennale Arte 2024 will take place in Venice from April 20 until November 24, 2024. If you would like to see works by Leopold Strobl by then, you are welcome to do so in our galerie gugging, museum gugging and in our online shop. Strobl can also be seen at the Zurich Biennal until April 1, 2024, at the Parkside Gallery with Harald Woschitz from May 15, 2024, at the Art Paris fair together with the Gugging Artist Oswald Tschirtner from April 4, 2024, and from June 6, 2024, in our anniversary exhibition 30 years galerie gugging. This is definitely the year of Leopold Strobl!
