Beginning 1 June 2013, gallerist Ernst Hilger will be presenting an ambitious street-art exhibition project with festival flavour titled Cash, Cans & Candy, featuring over 40 artists at the HilgerBROTKunsthalle Wien 10 and at the GALERIE HILGER NEXT Wien 10.

Curated by Katrin-Sophie Dworczak, the street-art exhibition Cash, Cans & Candy is presented by Ernst Hilger simultaneously at both his exhibition venues, HilgerBROTKunsthalle Wien 10 and GALERIE HILGER NEXT Wien 10 at Absberggasse 27, 1100 Vienna. This way, he once again puts the former Anker bread factory in the public spotlight as a new art and cultural complex. From 1 June until 14 September 2013, the exhibition Cash, Cans & Candy is showing works by over 40 Austrian and international artists from all five continents on 800 square metres of exhibition space. Both pioneers like Robbie Conal as well as established street artists such as Retna and Shepard Fairey from Los Angeles, Faile from New York City, or Roa from Belgium are taking part in this large-scale exhibition venture. At the same time, the exhibition features artists who until now have only been known within certain subcultures and just now are beginning to introduce their works to a larger audience. In addition, before and throughout the duration of the exhibition Cash, Cans & Candy events and performances will take place at various locations in Vienna. The exhibition opening is at the HilgerBROTKunsthalle Wien 10 and the GALERIE HILGER NEXT Wien 10 on Friday, 31 May at 7pm.
