Out There – Travelling Without Moving

Márk Fridvalszki, Adrián Kiss, Enikő Márton, Andrea Tivadar, Ádám Ulbert

Curator: Zita Sárvári

14-16 Kossuth Street

15 – 31 October, opening: 15 October, 8 p.m.

The exhibition Out There – Travelling Without Moving is a multifold reference complex. Firstly, the title refers moving the first lines of David Lynch's Dune, when Princess Irulan describes the effects of the most valuable substance of the universe, the orange flavoured melange. It goes as follows: “The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice is vital to space travel. The Spacing Guild and its navigators, who the spice has mutated over four thousand years use the orange spice gas which gives them the ability to fold space, that is to travel to any part of the universe without moving.” 

Secondly, it is a paraphrase of the symbolic presence of the artists through their works. Finally, it also refers to the artists' interest in science fiction and the general theme of the exhibition.

The works on display offer a visual approach towards the popular genre of sci-fi movies and literature with their unique symbolism, as seen in the works of Márk Fridvalszki and Adrián Kiss. Enikő Márton's geometrical sculptures made of plastic, aluminum and cardboard, or Andrea Tivadar's painting give minimalistic, abstract answers to questions about wormholes and space travel. The video work of Ádám Ulbert delves into the notion of sculptural theory using a holistic approach. His work reinterprets the mythological story of Pan in a post-apocalyptic environment.

Best Of Diploma 2015

 

Hungarian University of Fine Arts

The Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts organized the Best of graduation exhibition for the tenth time this year. From the various departments of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts (Painting, Sculpture, Graphic Arts, Graphic Design, Intermedia, Scenography, Conservation) students exhibited their works and defended their degree during a public event. During these presentations external experts invited by the individual departments selected the works displayed in the Best of graduation exhibition. The selection aims to showcase the current art education at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, through the presentation of comprehensive and diverse works. The artworks demonstrate a variety of techniques and genres. The exhibition does not intend to display a common art style characteristic to the University, rather, it is intended to demonstrate the conceptual, contextual and stylistic diversity that characterizes the young artist generation studying at the university.

The list of graduate students of 2015 and their thesis works can be viewed under the website www.diploma.mke.hu.

Signboard Best Of 30– Design Label for Good Wine!

14-16 Kossuth Street

15 – 31 October, opening: 15 October, 8 p.m.

This year's Art Moments will present the best designs of the  Signboard – Design Label for Good Wine! design competition. The professional jury selects the 10 best graphic design applicants each year to accompany the ten young winemakers’ wines. For three years, the jury chose the 10 best plans each year out of nearly six hundred applications. These will be exhibited for the first time as a collection in October.

The project’s aim is to introduce young winemakers and help them enter the market, which is impossible without a marketable brand image. However, very few are able to finance a complete corporate identity design. Cégér tries to offer support for these young winemakers, as well as to create opportunity for the ten best graphic designers to introduce themselves.

The three years of Signboard proved to be highly successful because in many cases, long-term cooperation was established between the winemakers and the graphic designers. The top ten designs entered a road show-like tour around Hungary and abroad as well, visiting important European cities, such as Rome, Paris, Berlin, Bratislava, Warsaw, Helsinki, Brussels, Zagreb, New York City, Belgrade, Prague and Beijing.
