Magyar Foundation of North America Announces Launch of “Hungary Emerging”

Budapest, Hungary; Washington, DC – The Magyar Foundation of North America is proud to announce the launch of Hungary Emerging, a series of exhibitions showcasing the work of young, emerging Hungarian visual artists, living in and outside of Hungary. The goal of this program is to provide an opportunity for emerging Hungarian artists to gain international exposure, and to engage in artistic experimentation and cultural exchange.

Artists will submit their works to a panel of experts who will select up to 10 artists to take place in the Hungary Emerging exhibition. The selection committee is comprised of leading art experts with experience ranging from academia to New York’s top galleries.

“The Magyar Foundation of North America’s mission is to promote Hungarian culture, contributions, and issues of mutual interest. By creating a platform for young, and emerging artists of Hungarian descent, the world will be able to see and appreciate their special talents, and the artists will have a unique opportunity to gain exposure to a global audience.” said Jo Anne Barnhart, Executive Director of the Magyar Foundation.

Hungary Emerging will formally launch at the Art Market Budapest art fair on October 11, 2017. The artists that are selected to participate will be announced in January of 2018, with exhibitions happening throughout the United States in 2018.
