Main exhibition
"Follow the Rabbit"

In the main exhibition 2023 "Follow the Rabbit" curated by Alexandra Grimmer, the Liaunig Collection shows a new side by opening the door to the Far East and presenting itself in juxtaposition with contemporary Chinese art.

Special exhibition
"Old Friends: Franz Ringel"

The "Old Friends" series begun in 2016 will be continued with the Styrian painter and graphic artist Franz Ringel (1940-2011). The exhibition series is dedicated to artists who have been friends of Herbert Liaunig since the 1960s.

Sculpture depot
"Eyewall – Hannes Priesch"

"Eyewall" is the title of a series of 49 paintings and a performance by the artist Hannes Priesch (*1954), which deals with the e-mail correspondence of the US authority FEMA before, during and after Hurricane Katrina in autumn 2005.

Permanent collections

African Beaded Art

The approximately 300 objects – richly beaded, ceremonially used objects, but also everyday things – provide an insight into the lifeworlds and traditions of West and Central African ethnic groups and show a facet of African art that is still little explored.

Portrait miniatures

Of the now well over 300 miniatures in the Liaunig Collection, this second exhibition presents a representative selection of over 120 pieces of these hand-painted portraits of the smallest scale, created between the beginning of the 17th and the end of the 19th century.


The second part of the Liaunig Glass Collection – a selection of more than 100 glasses from the various eras - has been on display since 2021. The compilation provides an overview of European glass history and shows how diverse and innovative the material glass has been designed.
