Galerie Ernst Hilger


The first gallery to participate in Mana’s International Gallery Program, Galerie Ernst Hilger represents the works of contemporary and modern artists.


Founded in 1971 in Vienna’s city center, the gallery represents artists such as Erró and Mel Ramos, along with exponents of Austrian modernism from the 1960’s onward and masters of the most important international art movements of the 20th century – from Pablo Picasso and Jean Dubuffet to Pop Art artists like Andy Warhol and Keith Haring.

In addition to the city center location, Mr. Hilger launched two venues in 2009 in the former Ankerbrotfabrik (Anker Bread Factory) in Vienna’s 10th district. Today, the industrial building provides a home to several contemporary art institutions, but Mr. Hilger was the first to set up an outpost on the site. Hilger BROTKunstalle and Hilger NEXT, spread over 12,000 square feet, provide ample space for curatorial projects with artists from new emerging art scenes such as Africa, Iran, and South America, as well as partnerships with two of Vienna’s academies of art.
