After a great opening last year, the Garten Contemporary Art Base will reopen this summer with programs running from August 1 to 22. Visitors can take in exhibitions, guided tours, concerts, theater and dance performances, podium talks and even a garden cinema.
Two principal curators, art historian János Schneller and artist Ákos Bánki, organized the main exhibit at the Nagy Gyula Gallery in Lovas. It will show nearly 300 works by more than 120 artists, covering several generations, styles and genres for a comprehensive picture of contemporary Hungarian art.
As a special treat, Péter Lichter’s latest film, Baroque Femina, will premiere at the garden cinema of the gallery. The film program will also feature a biographical film drama by Dieter Berner; a film about the life and art of Egon Schiele, an early 20th-century artist in Vienna; and four documentaries.
You can find more information on all programs and locations at Garten 2020’s website.
