Exhibition by the Hungarian Academy of Arts’ Section of Applied Arts and Design
The Hungarian Academy of Arts is organizing this “introductory”-purpose exhibition by its members in order to offer the general public an insight into the changes in the institutional framework of applied and design arts over the last decade. The exhibition is a follow-up to the showcasing entitled “NAME-TAG” staged in 2014 and hosted by the Esztergom (Hungary) based Szent Adalbert Centre. This 2023 exhibition aims to reflect on events as well as on changes in the composition of staff over the past period.
The concept of the exhibition revolves around the idea that each academician of the Section, in partnership with an artist of his or her choice, forms an “intellectual and aesthetic” unit, where the academician is passing on his or her intellectual heritage to the representative of the next generation. In the scope of this, works by 39 academicians and by over 40 non-academician fine and applied artists as well as design artists offer a kind of snapshot of the current state of the Section of Applied Arts and Design and its future aspirations. The exhibition focalises objects produced by handcraft applied arts and by functional design arts.
