Association of Friends

The association of friends is an important forum for open discussion in support of the fundamental aims of the institution, namely collecting, conserving, researching and supporting, exhibiting and presenting.

The Gesellschaft der Freunde der Neuen Galerie has existed since 1946 and actively participates in the cultural life of the province of Styria. Through its spiritual and financial support it contributes to helping the fine arts and connects art and society, given that social, commercial, socio-political and aesthetic questions are of fundamental relevance to both sides.

Its members are directly involved in events at the Neue Galerie and experience an exceptional level of access to art through direct contact with the artists themselves
