about the ACFNY

The Austrian Cultural Forum New York is the main cultural embassy of the Republic of Austria in New York and the United States. We are dedicated to showcasing Austrian art, music, film, theater, and literature, presenting "as much from our cultural past as necessary and as much contemporary art as possible".

With its architectural landmark building in Midtown Manhattan, located just around the corner of MoMA, the ACFNY’s facilities include a multi-level gallery space, a theater, and its own library – named in honor of the late Vienna-born American writer and intellectual Frederic Morton. Hosting more than 100 free events annually, the ACFNY thus becomes one of the most important, if not the most important place to encounter Austrian art, culture and tradition for an American audience.
