There is a new place in Vienna for contemporary art!
As part of the Kunsthistorische Museum the Theseus Temple has re-open.

The Temple’s program is to present one work from one artist.

It starts with Ugo Rondinone’s „wisdom? peace? blank? all of this? „

You can see a big, old, gnarled olive tree in an otherwise empty building. It was cast by Ugo Rondinone from a two-thousand-year-old living tree in a field in Basilicata in southern Italy – every bump, scratch or scar carefully rendered. Painted white and lit by continually changing daylight, the tree seems magical, unfathomable – as though from another world.
