Julia Abramova — art historian, curator and art guide in Vienna

Julia Abramova

Art Historian, Museum Educator, Curator

For almost 20 years I have been trying to answer the question: “What exactly does art intend to convey to the observer?”.

While I was searching for answers, I curated art exhibitions in the most exciting places, from an abandoned factory in the Eastern European provinces to the prestigious Venice Biennale.

While conducting filming for TV, I spent several years documenting famous collections of museums like the Tate Modern in London or the Guggenheim Museum in New York. And as a member of a striving cultural organisation, I studied the best of museum practices of leading European and U.S. institutions.

I hold a master-level degree in Art History, yet my experience has taught me that Art History alone – however fascinating it may be – can only offer a one-sided view on art. But if you change your perspective slightly and add bits and pieces of evolutionary psychology, anthropology, economics and some of the latest news to it, we can find much more meaningful answers to the questions with which art challenges us.

My curated art tours transform every museum visit into a thought-provoking and entertaining experience – which makes life much more exciting.
