Opened by art historian Kati Aknai, on 5 December, 2013, Thursday, at 6 pm
Museum of Fine Arts – Vasarely Museum
Curator: Paula Marsó
The next Parallel Exhibition of Vasarely Museum presents the works of Levente Bálványos (b. 1966) and Franz Riedl (b. 1976). Both artists regularly exhibit with the Open Structures Art Society (OSAS), and local exhibition-goers will be familiar with their names. The exhibit looks into the conceptual duality of open and closed space, considers space a living, ironic problem, which is now represented as the model of works, as well as the absence of this model. This temporary exhibition of Vasarely Museum is thematically closely related to the autumn series of workshop discussions called Parallel Stories about Art, one of whose subjects is the relationship of visual art and architecture, as well as to Interspaces, the exhibit of OSAS which is on view until 10 January, 2014. Before the opening of Bálványos and Riedl’s exhibition, curator Dóra Maurer will give a guided tour of the Interspaces display.
The exhibition is supported by the National Cultural Fund.
