Young artistsʼ exhibition opens in Budapest
Opening on May 7 and running until June 10, Therapy is the main exhibition of the Küszöb Festival, which reflects on the situation of the youngest generation of artists. The event is being hosted by the Centrális Galéria, at Arany János u. 32, District 5 of Budapest.
The project has used group therapy (“self-awareness group” would be the proper term in psychological parlance) as a tool to be able to show how young artists of today see their present and future in Hungary, says a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
Two psychologists led the self-awareness group of ten young artists, who were chosen by the curator. At the group events, the artists discussed the personal difficulties they encountered at the outset of their careers and tried to define the failings of the current institutional system.
Based on the experience of recent years and the therapy, the participants aimed to formulate suggestions which could solve the problems of the institutional system without the need for massive funding. The exhibited artworks were created at the end of the therapy and are reactions to the current situation of the exhibiting artists and to the imperfections of the institutional system of contemporary art.
Exhibiting artists will include Csönge Balla, Viktória Balogh, Dávid Demeter, Máté Dobokay, Marcell Kazsik, Botond Keresztesi, Victor Lima, Judit Lilla Molnár, Lili Thury, and Balázs Máté Tóth.
