Works of Hungarian Judit Reigl at Museum Barberini in Potsdam

Starting in October, the exhibition of nearly 100 abstract works will also be on show at the Albertina Modern in Vienna and the Munch Museum in Oslo.

For the exhibition “Form of Freedom, International Abstraction after 1945,” works by more than 50 artists from the world’s leading modern and contemporary museums and major private collections have been loaned out.

Judit Reigl is the only Hungarian artist to represent women in the exhibition, which features works by a majority of female artists. Alongside her iconic 1958 painting “Dominance-Center” (“Dominancia-Központ”), a nearly two-meter-long work entitled “Lightning from 1956” (“1956-os Villám”) can be seen. The latter has been lent by the Center Pompidou in Paris for this traveling exhibition.

Judit Reigl’s wider success came after she met gallery owner Kálmán Makláry. Thanks to their collaboration, the Kossuth Prize-winning painter’s fantastic works have been shown in three museum exhibitions in Hungary. Her works could be seen in Műcsarnok in 2005, followed by the Modem in Debrecen in 2010 and the Ludwig Museum in Budapest in 2014.

Since 2004, Makláry has represented the artist both nationally and internationally, exhibiting her works regularly at many of Europe’s leading art fairs.

The Potsdam exhibition is open until September 25.
