Galerie Emanuel Layr

Galerie Emanuel Layr was founded by Emanuel Layr in Vienna, Austria in 2011 in order to continue and enhance the agenda of his former gallery LayrWuestenhagen (2005-2011). The gallery program focuses on contextualizing and confronting notions and artistic manifestations of the conceptual with the relevant social, political and cultural issues of today. Based in a city with a long history of oscillation between hemispheres – East and West, North and South – the program strives for interplay between artists from different generations and cultural or discursive backgrounds. The gallery is the exclusive representative of the estate of the late Slovak neo-avantgardist Stano Filko, as well as of Belgian-American artist Cécile B. Evans. Further evidence of the gallery's precise and multi-layered focus can be found in its fruitful and ongoing collaborations with artists like Anna-Sophie Berger, Julien Bismuth, Andy Boot, Plamen Dejanoff, Gaylen Gerber, Lena Henke, Benjamin Hirte, Lisa Holzer, Birgit Megerle, Lili Reynaud-Dewar and Philipp Timischl.

In September 2015 Galerie Emanuel Layr moved into a two story space in Vienna’s city centre, and since January 2017 has been developing and running a subsidiary in Rome, Italy, adding yet another dimension of exchange, expansion and integration to its profile.

Artists presented at Cosmoscow 2020: Stano Filko.
