Made in Asia.

The Hundred-Year-Old Hopp Museum
June, 20. 2019. – June, 30 2020.

Opens the art of history to the visitors of to-day!

The upcoming show will delineate the history of Asian cultures and arts in Hungary in the last hundred and fifty years, focusing on the collections of the museum. Worthwhile to take a visit in the back yard of the museum it has a quite, unique garden which has the curiosity visitors to feel a bit as being in Asia with the huge stone statues, that play an important spot in the everyday life of the museum.

“Our new exhibition titled Made in Asia. The Centenary of the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Arts running for a full year will display the best pieces in the collection of the hundred-year-old Hopp Museum. Opening at the end of June, the show will portray the great periods in the museum’s history, spanning from the interwar period linked to the institution’s first director, art historian Zoltán Felvinczi Takács, to the period of Buddhist exhibitions, linked to Mária Ferenczy, a renowned sinologist, who passed away in 2017.
The more than 500 artefacts – including temporarily displayed pieces – are arranged according to the most important periods in the museum’s history. The display allows an insight into how – based on what opportunities and collecting criteria – the most representative items and groups of objects entered the collection. In order to protect the condition of the artefacts selected for the exhibition, in some cases we introduced quarterly replacements of certain items or groups of items. We will remember the prominent figures in the museum’s history: directors and staff members who played a key role in maintaining the operation of the museum and in shaping its collecting activity in those periods in the twentieth century that were fraught with tragedies in Hungary (and across the world). We will acquaint visitors with the – often adventurous – stories of the highest quality pieces, thus allowing them with a unique opportunity to ponder twentieth-century history in the context of the Asian artefacts of a Hungarian museum.

Besides the centennial exhibition, there are more surprises to come. The publication of a gap-filling reference book about the history of the Hopp Museum’s collections and the descriptions of its most prominent artefacts is closely linked to the jubilee year (the volume will be available both in English and in Hungarian). The near future will also see the publication of the special jubilee edition of our Portable Museum Education Library, which will be devoted to the life and work of Ferenc Hopp, while a bilingual volume presenting the history of the Hopp Villa and its garden and illustrated with archival photographs will come out in the autumn.
We always try to bring the museum’s seasonal exhibitions close to the public by organising a diverse range of events. This year in addition to the usual guided tours and museum education workshops, we will even open an open-air cinema in the garden for the summer. Prime importance will be attached to some outstanding anniversaries of Asiatic cultures such as the hundred-fiftieth anniversary of Japanese–Hungarian diplomatic relations, the hundred-fiftieth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth, the seventieth anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, and the thirtieth anniversary of Korean–Hungarian diplomatic relations.

 The exhibition can be viewed daily, except on Mondays between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The invitation goes for locals and foreigners to have a break from the everyday’s activities to join and celebrate the centenary of the Hopp Museum together.

Jacques Henri Lartigue – Life in Color @ Capa Center Budapest

June, 7. – September, 1. 2019

 This upcoming  exhibition  holds a unique compilation of the French master’s color work has only recently been exhibited at a few venues in Europe. Locals and foreigner are more than welcomed to step out of their daily tasks and to enjoy a true gem, style and beauty of Lartigue’s.

 Here’s a short intro to the show: Q.: “One of the surprise-oeuvres of photography is that of the French painter Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894–1986), who was born 125 years ago. He became a world-renowned photographer at the age of 69, following his extremely successful solo exhibition showcased at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, immediately becoming unvadable in the history of photography.
He was documenting his life from the age of 6, keeping an “optical notebook.” He is interested in everything, his
curiosity knows no limits. He is mesmerized by the possibility of capturing the one-time, unreproducible experiences, situations, and the observed visual interrelations in his photographs. He is not only seized by the joy of seeing, or the creation of images, but also by using the technical device itself, the camera, and the vast repository of possibilities it offers.
His main subjects were the achievements of technical innovation, flying, car races, speed, social life, women, beauty, and traveling. He magically turned the small miracles of everyday life, the enchanting conjunctions of objects and lights into a common memory for all of us. He disregarded photographic conventions; he followed his heart when taking photographs, he enjoyed observation, photography, and life itself.

Lartigue is a photographer of the bright side of life, whose visual diary reveals a history of the 20th century filled with beauty and joyful moments. His full photographic oeuvre consists of 120,000 negatives, glass plates, slides, moving pictures, and 126 photo albums with the accompanying texts.

The Life in Color exhibition showcases a selection of the color images making up about one-third of the oeuvre,
providing an overview of not only the most determining relationships he had, his journeys and his everyday life, but also his experimentation with the various techniques of color photography.” curator: Csizek Gabriella … source from Capa Center.
