Galerie Ernst Hilger in Vienna’s 1st district represents the works of artists such as Erró and Mel Ramos, along with exponents of Austrian modernism from the 1960s onward and the main exponents of the most important international art movements of the 20th century.
Ernst Hilger was the head of the FEAGA for several years and member of numerous art fair committees, including Art Basel; he acted as the longest-serving president of the Austrian Gallery Association and was instrumental in establishing the present conception of the role of galleries as partners of museums, collectors and representatives of the state. The roster of represented artists reflects the long history of the gallery.
In order to extend and strengthen the cooperation with international exhibition venues and museums the HilgerBROTKunsthalle was inaugurated in 2009. This space with its 800m² represents the gallery's laboratory for curatorial projects and influences and supports all involved partners. Three guest apartments for visiting and working artists and curators have been instrumental in bringing our exhibition projects to other institutional locations, while also attracting international collectors who have visited and acquired works
