UPCOMING EXHIBITION

MEMORY OF MOVEMENT

— Katalin Hetey —
 

Art+Text Budapest is delighted to present Katalin Hetey’s exhibition titled Memory of Movement. The exhibition, showcasing early paintings created in Paris and in Switzerland during the 1960s and 1970s, is Hetey’s first solo show in the gallery that follows the Noir et Blanc exhibition of 2017 where a selection of her works were displayed alongside those of Tamás Konok.

Katalin Hetey (1924-2010) studied at the Budapest College of Fine Arts, in the same year group as artists Simon Hantaï, Judit Reigl, and Vera Molnar, all of whom subsequently entered the Parisian art scene, just like Hetey did. Hetey left Hungary in 1956 and, following a short but inspirational stay in Italy where she met key figures of Arte Povera, such as Afro, Alberto Burri and Marino Marini, she ended up in Paris. There, Hetey’s artistic vocabulary matured in the proximity of the École de Paris, French Informel, and L'Art Brut. The basis of Hetey’s artistic programme is a half-conscious, half-instinctive abstraction of motives taken from architectural heritage and forms found in the natural and the industrial environment. Hetey’s art builds upon the synthesis of organic and geometric thinking, simultaneously drawing from the subconscious realm of écriture automatique and the domains of scientific analysis. Her multifaceted painterly universe unravels itself in numerous threads inspired by Informel, L'Art Brut, Arte Povera, as well as Surrealism and Minimalism.


On view: 7 June - 30 June 2018

MIRA DALMA MAKAI AT V4 ART CONNECTS 

 
Mira Dalma Makai has been selected as one of the artists featured in the exhibition series V4 ART CONNECTS titled STRUCTURES / ILLUSIONS / INTERACTIONS.


V4 ART CONNECTS offers a sampling of art from the countries of the Visegrád Group – the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia – along a wide range of the spectrum in terms of genres. The series, which can be viewed at various locations in the Buda Castle District in Budapest, comprises three parts: STRUCTURES is dedicated to sculpture, ILLUSIONS to video art, and INTERACTIONS to the traditional branches of fine arts, with special emphasis on painting and graphic art. While these selections could be interpreted as three autonomous exhibitions, they seek to draw the audience’s attention to the high-quality, multifaceted art of the region through a framework program that connects these sections with regard to both their geographical location and their content.


Venue: Várkert Bazár and Mikvé, 1014 Budapest Palotai Street 1.
On view: 25 May - 30 June 2018
