Posted by Mia Balogh · Feb 21, 2018

The exhibition is expected to be opened on the 111th birthday of the artist in the Hungarian National Gallery.

If you are looking for interesting exhibitions in Budapest, the Hungarian National Gallery must be on your list. If it hasn’t been there yet, well it’s high time to add this museum to the list because they have just announced some incredibly exciting exhibitions for this year.

Among others, one of the most highly anticipated programs in the Hungarian National Gallery is the Frida Kahlo exhibition, which is to be opened to commemorate the 111th anniversary of the artist’s birth. Visitors will be able to admire many of Frida Kahlo‘s vibrant paintings, provided by the Museo Dolores Olmedo in Mexico City. This is the first time that Kahlo’s art will be presented in Budapest.

Then, from October, the National Gallery will welcome guests with an exhibition titled ‘Bacon, Freud and the London School’, to help bring one of the most influential periods of modern British painting closer to the audience. The collection comes from Tate.

The last exhibition of the year will commemorate the 110th birth anniversary of the Hungarian artist Dezső Korniss. Moreover, you can also enjoy Julian Rosefeldt’s Manifesto video installation starring Cate Blanchett from this May.
