On 27 November, Imre Bukta, the most influential and internationally significant master of contemporary Hungarian art, opened his exhibition entitled Let’s Cultivate Our Gardens!
The exhibition, which celebrates the 70th anniversary of the artist’s birth, will exclusively feature new works. The artist conveys the world that surrounds him in rural Hungary through a vision based on the most modern techniques.
This exceptional art event will be on view in over 1000 m2 of the Godot Contemporary Art Institute’s four-storey exhibition space in Óbuda until spring 2023.
What is the relationship of the countryside to nature today, how can we live in the countryside, how do values get lost, what are the difficulties of finding a home, how can we face the passing of time, why is it so important for people to create and work? Imre Bukta’s works reflect on these questions with the tools of high art, creating nuanced and rich layers of meaning.
The most influential and internationally significant master of contemporary Hungarian fine art lives and works in Mezőszemere, a village in Heves County.
