In your trace. Inspirational forces in Russian and Hungarian contemporary art
The central exhibition of Budapest Art Week.
The exhibition of contemporary Russian and Hungarian art In your trace. Inspirational forces in Russian and Hungarian contemporary art is devoted to the current situation in the Russian and Hungarian art community. The show brings together twenty-nine artists/groups from Russia and Hungary. In Russia, from the end of the 1990s onwards some influential artists gave rise to a specific artistic vision that inspired the now established next generation and also led to the creation of self-organized, non-governmental spaces and collectives. In Hungary, significant artists represent a particular Zeitgeist in art and affect the next generation either within a university context or simply through their pivotal artistic vision. The exhibition showcases influential figures, artists who are young and active now, and self organized spaces from both countries. Its aim is to show a current ars poetica that characterizes the art scene of both countries: a vision of art that might reflect on specific issues, it transcends cultural references tied to a locality, revealing an artistic mindset shaped by a more global understanding of art, its common tools and language.
