Fresh Paint exhibition – focus on Hungary
Modern artistic exhibition in Tel Aviv from May 30 to June 2.
Hungarian art is the main theme of the largest Israeli contemporary art event in 2019. Budapest, Tel Aviv: The “Fresh Paint”, contemporary art exhibition focuses on Hungary and the sparkling art scene there. Israel’s largest and most influential get-together, a meeting of art fans, artists and professionals. “Focus on Hungary”, which will open on May 30 and lasts until June 2, is a joint initiative between the Israeli exhibition and the Art Market of Budapest, the largest contemporary art fair in Central and Eastern Europe, which made Hungary a true destination for art lovers.
The biggest and most influential Israeli art event of the year will be held in Tel Aviv between May 30 and June 6, 2019 with a special display of art works, which were made available to the public by leading Hungarian galleries. The event is part of the Hungarian Culture Year in Israel.
The “Focus in Hungary” – an excellent selection of artworks specifically made for the audience of the “Fresh Paint” exhibition – symbolizes the mutual effort of both Hungary and Israel to tighten cultural ties. The exhibition presents the unique view of contemporary Hungarian art. The realization has been made possible by the contribution of some of Hungary’s most important art galleries, many of whom are permanent participants in the world’s major international art fairs. The show is the fruit of the exemplary cooperation between Hungarian and Israeli contemporary art fairs, Tel Aviv’s “Fresh Paint”, and “Art Market” in Budapest.
While Fresh Paint is the most contemporary art platform in Israel, the Art Market of Central and Eastern Europe is the central international contemporary art exhibition in Central and Eastern Europe, with over 30,000 visitors and over 100 exhibitors each year. from around 30 countries.
Focusing on Hungary is based on a multi-year art cooperation. The Art Market in Budapest welcomed Israel as an honorary guest at the 2017 exhibition, a wide-ranging cultural festival called ART.ISRAEL ART.IS.REAL in Budapest to promote Israeli artists.
The exhibition “Working Paper” was also shown two years ago, where works by Israeli and Hungarian artists were presented. The current Focus on Hungary is actually organized by the same team that did “Working Paper” in 2017.
