The tri-country biennial “trigon” was founded in Graz in 1963, and for decades it presented an opportunity for wider artistic exchange among former Yugoslavia, Italy, Austria and other countries. “trigon 67” in particular, which took place in the Künstlerhaus and its outdoor environs, was titled “ambiente / environment.” It comprised one of the central exhibitions and featured fifteen, nowadays well-known artists, who examined contemporary architectural issues and the perception of various spaces.

To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of “trigon 67” and steirischer herbst, the Künstlerhaus will undertake a reevaluation of these once heavily discussed approaches. In the exhibition "trigon 67/17 – ambiente nouvo/ post environment" (23.09 – 23.11.17) once again fifteen young positions from the Trigon area revisit the original subject and present a range of practices dealing with space and architecture in contemporary art.

During the symposium curators, museum experts, and critics will undertake an analysis of the original "trigon" exhibition from 1967. Furthermore, its impact on contemporary art in Austria, Italy, and former Yugoslavia will be discussed.
