Cangiante colouring in Ilona Keserü Ilona’s new paintings

25 September 2014 - 14 December 2014

"Since 2001 I have explored the potential of colour shifting effects primarily in my painting, as well as in a historical context, examining it from the perspective of physical and optical laws and phenomena, and observing it in the collections of the great museums of Europe."

I'd follow you blindly – Exploring Space at the Vasarely Museum

4 October 2014

Let me show you this space, this place I found. It's kind of like a tunnel, yet it sometimes feels like a pyramid. Or looks like a pyramid. It depends how you see it. I can show you, actually. Here, take this paper and fold it, now turn it over and fold it again...

Fine art – literature - theatre

25 September 2014

10 works of fine art, 10 literary texts, 10 actors, 2 directors. The outcome: 5 scenes directed with two different approaches. The plays are intriguing as they are. Free association, dramaturgical knacks, secrets and mysteries in the spaces of the Museum of Fine Arts evocative of church interiors. With much humour and free of all pathos. All this brought under one roof, an unforgettable evening awaits visitors: sculptures and paintings seen through the eyes of writers and directors, revealing so far undiscovered, real and recontextualised meanings. One thing is certain: whoever comes to one of our evenings will never be able to look at the featured masterpieces in quite the same way again.

A new permanent exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts

10 June 2013.

On 28 June a large-scale exhibition will open at the Hungarian National Gallery titled Impressionist and Post-impressionist Masterpieces by MONET, GAUGUIN, SZINYEI MERSE, RIPPL-RÓNAI from the Collections of The Israel Museum Jerusalem, the Hungarian National Gallery and the Museum of Fine Arts, which promises to be one of this year’s sensational shows. The material selected from Impressionist and Post-impressionist masterpieces of The Israel Museum Jerusalem will be augmented with works by Hungarian masters, as well as with the best pieces of the Museum of Fine Arts’ collection of Modern French painting. Putting the ten most sought after masterpieces of the Museum of Fine Arts (for example paintings by Monet, Boudin, Gauguin, Bonnard, Denis) up for loan to other museums provides us with the opportunity to substitute pictures that have been removed from the permanent exhibition with works that in the past received an undeservedly lesser role.
