Virtual events have already been planned for many exhibitions because there is a great interest in online programs, Art Gallery Budapest stated in its announcement.
Currently, many free and paid programs including guided tours and roundtable discussions can be downloaded from Art Gallery’s website. All current and several previous exhibitions are available as a virtual tour, with more than 70 exhibitions having been recorded.
During the new, expanded virtual walks, each exhibited work can be seen separately, and the tour is accompanied by audio or video material. These extra tours are offered for half the price of normal tickets. Walks have been prepared for the exhibitions One Time – Studio Visits, Beat Feast – Photos by János Kőbányai, and Flowers of Decay – Chapters from the Horus Archive.
Twenty exhibitions opened last year — all open to the public. A single 2020 event at Art Gallery was postponed until the fall of 2021 because it was connected to the Eucharistic World Congress, which was also rescheduled.
According to the plans, the permanent programs will not be missed this year either.
In 2021, the opening exhibition of the Budapest Photo Festival will take place, while the National Salon of Photography and Derkó, the competition exhibition of the Derkovits Fine Arts Scholars, will also be organized.
A number of individual and thematic exhibitions as well as online and offline events are being planned as well.
