We are excited to update you that the Magyar Foundation of North America kicked off the US exhibition tour at ART EXPO NY on April 19 to April 22. Over the four days of the fair, which attracts thousands of visitors each year, guests were treated to an introduction to the diverse work of these artists. The next stop on this exhibit’s tour is the Hungarian Consulate in New York, where the artworks were unveiled on May 3 on at a celebration of the first direct flight between Budapest and New York in nearly a decade. The Hungary Emerging exhibition at the Consulate will stay on display for next several weeks.
Launched in October 2017 at Art Market Budapest, Central and Eastern Europe’s leading international contemporary art fair, the goal of this program is to provide an opportunity for Hungarian artists to gain international exposure, to engage in artistic experimentation and cultural exchange, and to introduce Hungarian contemporary art to a growing audience in the United States.
