The Fehérvár Szalon 2018 exhibition opened on Wednesday, which, combined with the Baroque memorial service of the city, brought together Baroque inspirations from contemporary artists.
In the National Archives of the St. Stephen’s King Museum, the exhibition of the artist Eszter Radák, the rector of the Hungarian Fine Arts University, the jury chair opened the exhibition.
“Is it worthwhile to make urban exhibitions?” he asked the question at the beginning of his speech, and then replied: “It’s worth it, but it’s a risk.” He believed that the affirmative answer depends heavily on the city, or what the callers call.
The rector remarked that the baroque salon theme was the first rumor to be heard as “two powerful emotional words” but also made it curious how contemporary would be. “It was an incredibly easy but not easy material for my surprise,” he said, adding that it was difficult for the jury to choose the best five works.
