ABOUT US + FAQS

Hello World Gallery is an innovative online art gallery with a focus on contemporary photography. Each exhibition has a different theme and is held over a limited time period, showcasing upcoming and inspiring photographers from around the world.

The aim is to redefine the experience of selling and buying art by making it accessible, transparent, convenient and welcoming to both buyers and artists. The Gallery connects the digital with the analog through the website and real-space exhibitions, which combine a multitude of artistic disciplines such as visual arts and music. By connecting the virtual with the physical, Hello World Gallery aims to explore and expand the borders of print-distribution and its reception.

 

Q&A

What do we do? Tell me about you.

We are an online art gallery offering archival prints from uprising photographers from around the world. Our exhibitions are curated; they occur in cycles lasting 100days with a specific topic each time. We represent a changing selection of artists for a limited period of time enabling them to showcase their work in a professional context. Our goal is to facilitate a closer more direct connection between the artist and the viewer. Hello World Gallery encourages the dialogue; enabling artists to exchange with other creative professionals, join a dynamic community and sell their art while our guests have the opportunity to acquire an affordable piece of art which is yet to be unveiled.

How does it work?

For how long can I see the prints online?

One cycle lasts for 100days. During this period, all artwork will be on display and for sale unless it is sold out due to the limitation of edition. Once an exhibition is finished, the artwork will be gone and no longer procurable.

What sizes do you offer?

You can choose from three different sizes; Small (20cmx30cm), Middle (30cmx45cm) and Large (50x75cm). We take the short side as a reference since the long side may slightly differ depending on each individual piece.

What do you mean by curated?

We carefully select every work we offer and represent the artists and chosen pieces truthfully. By collaborating closely with our artists, we aim to get the most interesting works together. The photographs have to work as a series of three but also as stand-alone pieces.

Is there a physical gallery space I can visit?

For the moment, we regularly organize Vernissages accompanied by talks in different locations throughout Vienna. We show selected works from our artists and invite guest speakers as well as the crowd. If you want to join us the next time, just subscribe to the newsletter and we will send you an invite. It is always fun and interesting and we would be glad to see you there some time soon.

Are the prints limited?

Yes, all photographs we offer are limited to an edition of 100 pieces. This is an incredibly important aspect to us. They are split across the three sizes (S-M-L) 40-30-30. Once they are sold out, they won’t be ever reproduced besides the artist prints.

How does shipping work?

After your order is placed, we assure production and dispatching to the postal service within 72hours. The actual time your order takes to arrive at your doorstep depends a little on where you live. Please keep in mind, that holidays such as Christmas demand an extended period of time due to the increased amount of work. We will communicate deadlines for your orders to arrive on time.

I have a question about my order. How can I contact you?

Feel free to simply contact us directly via this email address. Please do leave your name and address when writing to us.

Is it possible to buy a gift voucher?

Yes, we do offer gift vouchers since we believe it to be a very special present. A voucher is valid for all available artwork in one cycle.

What about framing?

For the moment, the prints do not include framing for logistical reason. However, we add suggestions what framing would work in our opinion for every single print. We are currently trying to extend our network of collaborators to be able to offer this optionally in the future. If you live in Austria, Poland or in the UK we already have partnered with frame builder. Please leave a comment at the checkout and we get in touch with you.

What’s your return policy?

You can return the print within 14 days. Please write us a mail at helloworldgallery@gmail.com upfront, when you do so.

How do you package the prints?

The smaller ones will be send in flat carton packages with plastic stiffeners. The bigger ones will be shipped in hard tubes.

I am not based in Europe; can I still purchase a print?

We do ship to most countries. You can see all countries we ship to on the drop-down menu at checkout. If you can't find your country in the drop-down menu, then write us an email at helloworldgallery@gmail.com and we will work out a solution. Boarders shall not be our limitation.
