Artistic evolution
Art, science and technology were all brought together under one platform in the exhibition of contemporary Hungarian art
(Blending several streams: The works reflect Hungarian tradition, culture and history)
The exhibition of selected contemporary Hungarian Art at the National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA) titled “From Organic Forms To Light Art” showcases, according to its curator, Attila Csaji just that.
“There is a direct reference to the title of this exhibition: ‘From the Organic to Light Art’ which means a certain encounter, sensitivity and an existence with the organic that leads to the bold trend/tendency of medial renewal. Some art forms such as the architecture of György Csete, the organic spirit in the statues of Sándor Csutoros and István Ilyés and the geometric figures Tamás Konok or Ádám Farkas relate to the artistic value of this exhibition,” says Csaji in a statement to the press.
The exhibition, that has been organised in collaboration with the Balassi Institute – Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre as part of the Cultural Exchange Programme between India and Hungary, showcases nearly 90 artworks by 40 artists.
The exhibition is a mix of fine art and technology, featuring sculptures, paintings, graphics, light art and geometric art. The artworks include photographs of buildings and building plans, prints (lithography, mainly), abstract and figurative paintings in oils and other media on wood or canvas, and sculptures in living material such as wood. While the light art section features artworks in UV light and holograms, in transmission holograms, reflection holograms or light calligraphy.
Architecture features prominently in the exhibition, mainly through the works of Imre Makovecz, though there are other works, like the “assemblage boxes” by Peter Prutkay, installations that showcase architectural and historical models. These works are a reflection of Hungarian tradition, culture and history.
“The primary goal of this exhibition is to present the prominent artistic values created in the last few decades by Hungarians independent of where in the world they were created,” writes Csaji in the curatorial note.
The exhibition will be on view until January 12 at the NGMA Manickyavelu Mansion, 49, Palace Road. For details, contact 22342338.
