The Association of Hungarian Folk Artists (Népművészeti Egyesületek Szövetsége, NESZ), the main organiser of the annual Festival of Folk Arts, is the umbrella organisation of today’s Hungarian handicraft movement.
The exhibition is a review of the most outstanding masterpieces of Hungarian craftspeople. The works provide a good representation of the genres and riches of technical, conceptual and creative diversity that characterise the movement. The exhibited objects have been produced with an impressive range of professional skills and profound ethnographic and historical knowledge. The creators “speak the language” of traditional regional styles, techniques, forms and motifs, but experiment and strive to find their individual “voice”, thus creating unique works of artistic merit.
The beauty, quality and harmony of the exhibited pieces draws attention to the timeless aesthetic quality of the world of traditional objects. Each work reflects the time devoted to its creation, the touch of the artist’s hand and the aesthetic sense of past masters, while acquiring new forms through the artist’s imagination.
Exhibition will be open: 20th August – 22th November 2015
Daily open: Tuesday-Sunday 10.00 AM – 6.00 PM
Visitors of the Festival of Folk Arts receive 15% off of the price of the ticket to the exhibition if and only if they show their valid festival entry armband!
