The Óbuda Night of Culture (Óbudai Kultéj) will take place again this year!
The event brings together cultural venues in the third district, including museums, galleries, cafés and libraries creating a new cultural event for the whole of Óbuda.
Date: Saturday, 31 July 2021 from 3 pm to 11 pm
Visitors may participate in all the Óbudai Kultéj events with a single 1500 HUF ticket purchased at the first venue visited.
The Óbuda Night of Culture programs are free of charge for visitors under the age of 14.
The chronological display provides an in-depth look at Victor Vasarely’s early work, the development of his artistic career and well-known compositions from his later periods.
Light – Movement – Illusion: A Selection from the Suciu and Szöllősi-Nagy – Nemes Collections (temporary exhibition)
A joint exhibition of the Germany-based Emilia Suciu collection and the Budapest-based Szöllősi-Nagy – Nemes collections are presented. Both art collections have a broad international profile and aspire to integrate Eastern and Western European artists into a global context. The two collections, each of which has Eastern European roots, were further shaped in Paris, incorporating influences from movements such as geometric abstraction, op-art, kinetic art, and the Paris-based MADI movement.
The Constellation of Things I. / Konstellationen der Dinge I. (temporary exhibition)
The ten exhibiting artists are brought together by their thinking about space and in space. While each of them has their own system, they all share a preoccupation with space. The term “Constellation = Standing Together” in the title also suggests that their different approaches create a measure of unity.
4 pm to 5.30 pm
Inspired by Colour – Pop-up Show
Members of the Óbuda’s Harrer Pál Club for the Elderly will make compositions inspired by the colours in one of Vasarely’s paper collages, Orion Noir. Join us at 5.30 when we mount and display the works in the permanent exhibition space for a Pop-up show.
4 pm to 10 pm
Mirrors, Shadows and Movement
Inspired by works of art in the Light – Movement – Illusion exhibition, use everyday bulletin board tacks and create your own work of art that plays with shadows and mirrors.
4 pm – 10 pm
Through a Child’s Eye
Through a Child’s Eye invited young Logiscool Óbuda campers to explore the Light – Movement – Illusion exhibition. They chose a few works they found fascinating and made a treasure hunt to guide us through their thinking.
