Galerie Emanuel Layr Young at art

Layr Wuestenhagen originally opened in 2002 as a project space for emerging artists by two gallerists, Emanuel Layr and Thomas Wüstenhagen. After initial success and a hunger for larger projects, the gallery moved to a larger space, which now includes viewing galleries, offices and additional project spaces.

In March 2011 the gallery was reestablished under the directorship of Emanuel Layr, with a focus toward solo exhibitions occasionally punctuated by broadly scoped group shows. Since then the gallery’s eye for emerging talent has helped to support numerous young artists.

Levante Parliament Historically modern featured

Braiding rationalism, minimalism and technology, the Levante Parliament hotel works as both a crashpad and makeshift gallery. Since opening its doors in 2006, they offer 70 rooms and suites constructed to showcase its modern architectural structure and fine, raw materials: natural stone, glass, chrome and stained wood twist and turn to lend the hotel an earthy, handsome aesthetic. Displayed prominently in the hotel’s front area are photographs by Curt Themmessl and delicate glass structures by artist Ioan Nemtoi, who also helped conceptualize Levante’s restaurant and bar areas with a glass bar countertop and fire frames.

But the modern appeal here wasn’t always the case—the hotel’s building dates back to 1908 at the height of the Vienna School and Bauhaus movement. Today, Levante’s fitness center, sauna, garden and courtyard should appease those tired jet-setters in need of classy tranquility in the big city.
