Café Vienne is an installation designed by Austrian artist Isa Rosenberger (b. 1969) that transforms the Skirball’s Ruby Gallery into a setting reminiscent of a Viennese café house from the early twentieth century.

Café houses played a crucial role in the lives of female artists and writers as places for debate, networking, and inspiration while they were struggling for political and artistic recognition. This immersive installation commemorates the cultural history and impact of these cafés, while encouraging visitors to engage in new, creative discussions over coffee and food provided by Zeidler’s Café.

Isa Rosenberger has received numerous awards for her work, including the Otto Maurer Prize and the Outstanding Artist Award from the Austrian Ministry for Education, Arts and Culture. She has participated in many exhibitions in Europe and had a MAK Schindler grant in 1997. Café Vienne is her first project in Los Angeles.
