State Gallery of Lower Austria is a new, dynamic exhibition space for Austrian art and artists. It brings together the holdings of Lower Austrian State Collections with important private collections and engages with the issues of our time through theme and solo exhibitions. Covering all art forms, the program focuses on the realities of human experience and builds a dialog between the new and the old.

State Gallery of Lower Austria reflects Lower Austria as a landscape at the nexus between Vienna and neighboring countries that has greatly contributed to the history of European art. To this day, it provides outstanding artists with an inspiring living environment.
