The Budapest Music Center, responsible for Hungarian cultural content at the Shanghai World Expo 2010 announced a competition for the individual design and painting of a resin Gömböc model, which constitutes the central theme of the national exhibition. The aim of the competition was to encourage the creation of a special, visually appealing design, which - adapted to the shape of the Gömböc - is capable of conveying Hungarian intellectuality and cultural traditions in an international environment.
The first opportunity for the public to see the creations selected by the prestigious jury as the best ten works will be 19 June 2009 at the Múzeumok Éjszakája (Night of Museums) in the Műcsarnok. Afterwards the exhibition may be viewed in the Palace of Arts (21 June - 5 July), as well as in autumn in Pécs, site of the European Capital of Culture. The Gömböc exhibition will also be on display 23 August - 5 September 2010 in China in MOCA Shanghai (Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art) as part of the Art Forum Hungary event series."
