To mark the Hungarian presidency of the European Union in 2011, the Centre for Fine Arts presents the work of eight artists whose in-novative approach bears witness to the quality of Hungary’s flourishing contemporary art scene. Emese Benczúr’s floating, spatial textile in--stallations are the perfect introduction to the exhibition. The work of Imre Bukta, Orshi Drozdik, Balázs Kicsiny and Gyula Várnai combine visual poetry with critical reflection. Lenke Szilágyi’s stri-king photos and Gábor Gerhes’s staged pictures are also included. Look out, too, for an outstanding multimedia installation by the ar-tist and curator of this selection, Péter Forgács: based on a captain’s footage from 1939, The Danube Exodus takes an ingenious look at the subject of migration.
