MIA PHOTO FAIRS focuses on Hungarian photography and cooperates with ART PHOTO BUDAPEST
Hungarian art photography is playing a leading role and is among this year’s highlights at MIA PHOTO FAIR for a good reason. Under the title FOCUS ON HUNGARY, an outstanding exhibition section is brought together by some of Budapest’s prominet galleries to give an insight to Hungary’s vibrant contemporary photo art scene to the audience in Milan in March 2017.
Hungarian has a special relationship and a long tradition with photography. Building on the heritage of László Moholy-Nagy, André Kertész, Robert Capa, Brassai and 20th century classics, a new generation of award-winning youg artist has emerged, and Budapest strives with good reason and outstanding characteristics for a central role in international photography with a backgroung insured by a steadily developing institutional and educational system, and with excellent photography found within the portfolios of nearly all Hungarian leading contemporary galleries.
In addition, Budapest hosts the only international photo fair in Central and Eastern Europe: Art Photo Budapest was established in 2014 as a special photography section of the regionally leading art fair Art Market Budapest, and fills an entire exhibition hall annually with an outstanding selection represented by exbibitors arriving from four continents.
Art Photo Budapest has been a cooperating partner of MIA and is a co-organizer of FOCUS ON HUNGARY.
It is due to these components that MIA decided to welcome Hungary as special guest providing a Hungarian photo selection of outstanding quality as a special attraction and an artistic highlight. The show will be accompanied by a panel discussion on Budapest’s central role in international photography on March 10.
