SPECIAL FOCUS AT ART MARKET BUDAPEST 2019:
INTRODUCING CONTEMPORARY ART FROM RUSSIA
Each year, at Art Market Budapest’s initiative, as an accompanying event of the fair, with the aim of highlighting a selected outstanding source of artistic treasures, a series of cultural programs and a complex art festival take place in Budapest. As Central and Eastern Europe’s leading international art fair and the region’s most significant platform for contemporary art, Art Market Budapest takes it upon itself to highlight artistic content of outstanding quality from the post-communist countries, and to make it accessible to the art industry as well as to a broad international audience.
Art Market Budapest selected and welcomes RUSSIA as guest of honor in 2019, and in the form of the ART.RUS festival, art from Russia is placed in the focus of attention in Budapest. An exceptionally wide selection of Russian art exhibited on-site at Art Market Budapest 2019 is extended to several further art venues and events in Budapest, to give a taste of the extraordinary richness and quality of this amazing and internationally relatively underrepresented art scene.
