The ArtMarketFair is a #1 spot for visitors to explore art  by rolling along the collections.

Put your comfy shoes on cause to visit the ArtMarketFair,  if you decided so … get ready to see the 100 stands and meet, talk with the 400 artists. 

I’m generally attracted to strong, bold, graphic pieces. I like expressive art and definitely think that art can spark conversations. Not everything will appeal to everyone, but that’s O.K. That’s not what it should be about. I believe half of the enjoyment of art is in the spontaneous discussions that arise. Well at the ArtMarketFair you sure will get into the mood.

Now  … Let’s see some foreigner artists who are out there at the Millenium Park.

There are foreigners introducing their works in various field of art, design, music and in the stage of fashion. The international artists project is known as  Art-in-Fusion. Their works can be seen out on display at this year’s Art Market Festival. Concerning the future,  other artists  will be invited to the Art Market Festival of 2013.

Just a fortnight ago the Museum of Fine Arts opened Cézanne’s unique exhibition which have had not ever appeared together with the oeuvres of the great 19th century’s masters else in the World. These masters explored the influences and developed the modern art. This exhibition titled: „Cézanne and the Past: Tradition and Creativity” present an overview of Paul Cézanne’s ceuvre and his approach to the past. The paintings at the Fine Art Museum have had been lended from the world’s famous four major museums,institutions and private collectors. Almost 100 hundred paintings, drawings, prints and illuminated books can be seen created by masters from the 16th-19th century.

(Cézanne regularly visited the small town’s museums like: Aix-en-Province  and in addition the Musée du Louvre in Paris. He made his own copies prints and reproductions which served as constant sources of inspiration for his artworks. He also used figurations of the Classical Antiquity, the Renaissance, Mannerism and Baroque and Romanticism. Cézanne once said: „I want to make of impressionism, something solid and lasting like the art in the museums”)

While paying a visit at the museum, found out, by the purchased ticket to the Cézanne exhibition at the Museum of Fine Art it can be replaced with 10% discount on admission to the Budapest Festival Orchestra’s French themed concert on November, 24/25/26.2012.
If you buy the concert ticket, then it can be switch to a 10% discount on ticket to the Cézanne Exhibition. The promotion runs until December,20.

Also the ArtMarketFair gave a chance to pay visit on a guide tour at the Hungarian  House of Photography (Mai Manó Ház). Mind you, there is still a couple of days to go a visit, if you don’t wish to miss seeing the photos of a Lady, the Great Photographer of the 20th century  go for it. Ms. Vivian Maier was an outstanding artist. Her work was discovered by chance by an American real estate agent, John Maloof in 2007. Since then, almost forming a special story and photos throughout the world. Vivian Maier born as an Austro-Hungarian, worked in France as a nanny.
