Art and Heritage in Central Europe
The Hungarian National Gallery’s exhibition titled Art Deco Budapest. Posters, Lifestyle and the City (1925–1938) presents a comprehensive overview of the distinct visual culture of the interwar period. The main focus of the exhibition is Hungarian Art Deco, with a highlight on poster art and modern urban lifestyle. The majority of the more than 250 exhibits are rarely seen at exhibitions, and some of them are displayed for the very first time.
The exhibition is available from 12 April to 28 August 2022.
Additionally, there is also a chamber exhibition entitled “Dancing 1925 – Hungarian Artists in Parisian Nightlife” (graphic cabinet), presenting the Parisian nightlife of the 1920s through the eyes of three Hungarian artists, Marcell Vértes, János Vaszary and Miklós Vadász, whose works evoke the vibrant ambience of Paris nightclubs. The focus of the exhibition is Marcell Vértes’s album titled Dancing, presenting various scenes from a night in Paris. This is nicely complemented by works János Vaszary and Miklós Vadász made in the French capital, allowing visitors to get a picture of the Parisian night of the 1920s from the perspective of three different artists who drew on the same inspiration.
