The Salon on Agripas Street is an art exhibit by members of the Agripas 12 cooperative gallery, to celebrate the book Vienna-1900 published in 2019 and edited by Rina Peled and Sharon Gordon.

The book, Vienna-1900 is essentially a retrospective of the Viennese experience at the turn of the nineteenth century. Many of the essays included in this volume relate to the cultural, artistic, and social aspects of Vienna at the turn of the century: the architecture; the Viennese Workshop where the best artists of the period created, such as Gustav Klimt, Josef Hoffman, and Otto Wagner; the music of Gustav Mahler; the Freudian psychoanalysis; the Viennese film heritage; the coffee shop; the Viennese cuisine; the salonnière; the “Sweet Girl”, and more.

Aside the academic events dedicated to the book, Agripas 12 is holding a special art exhibit, turning the gallery in salon of sorts, in which each one of the artists shows a contemporary work that engages in a dialogue with Vienna at the turn of the nineteenth century. The works cover a broad range of media: painting, sculpture, installation, performance, photography and jewelry.
