Műcsarnok is a highly significant exhibition hall in Hungary for contemporary arts. Conceived on the model of the German Kunsthalles, the neo-Renaissance building was erected in 1896, for the country’s Millennial celebrations.
Our mission is to mediate, present and influence Hungarian and international trends and phenomena in the contemporary visual arts. At five to six major exhibitions annually – including many that are groundbreaking in the East-Central European region (Luc Tuymans’ Retrospective; The Leipzig Phenomenon, What’s Up? – A panorama of Contemporary Hungarian Art; Thomas Ruff’ Retrospective; Mi Vida – Heaven and Hell – The MUSAC’s collection in Budapest) – we present renowned local and foreign contemporary artists
