This a private venue owned by the Bank Austria. You may just miss it as you walk from the market on Am Hof to the Market on Freyung-where this exhibition hall is located.
(From there take a walk to the Burg theater and the Rathaus, stopping for coffee and cake at Lindtman coffee shop).
When we visited the place a retrospective of Balthus was presented. He was a very important one person movement of art. Suffice to say that Raine Maria Rilke was his mentor.
The list of lenders to the exhibition proves that this is a well known and respected venue so one can expect other important exhibitions there from time to time.
Before you arrive at Vienna make sure to check what's on show at the forum

We saw an interesting exhibit here when we passed by on a walk around the neighborhood. For a small entry fee you can attend a regular exhibition. Check it out. There's no permanent collection, so it's the luck of the draw when you stop in depending on the quality of the exhibition. We were lucky, and saw an exhibit of Russian avant-garde works.

We went already several times to exhibitions at the Bank Austria Kunstforum and found them to be mostly well conceived and high quality. There's no permanent exhibition, but rather always a specific artist or theme which is worked out into an exhibition for a few months.
The location -at Freyung - is easily accessible, from the subway line 3 station Herrengasse or Schottentor.

Exhibitions change regularly and whatever they are, they are worth seeing. The scale is much smaller than, say, the Kunsthistorisches Museum or other major museums in Vienna, so you can have a good look here even if you don't have a lot of time. It is ALWAYS worth it. And the very central location means you don't have to go out of your way to get there. Go for it next time you're in Vienna.

Before you go to Vienna, check what kind of exhibition they have. The temporary exhibiton are changing 2 or 3 times a year. We had already Frida Kahlo, Picasso, Tolouse Lautrec, etc. exhbitions. Carefully selected works in a nice setting.
