No fewer than 25 galleries from 12 different countries are taking part in the 2010 Budapest Art Fair – in a special new section devoted to the art of Central & Eastern Europe: HEROES CORNER.
As well as honouring the pioneering efforts of the region's artists and galleries, HEROES CORNER refers to the Fair’s venue: the Belle Epoque Mücsarnok (Art Hall) on grandiose Hősök Tere (Heroes' Square), situated at the far end of Andrassy Avenue, the 'Champs-Elysées of Central Europe.'
HEROES SQUARE has also been adopted as the new name for the Budapest Art Fair –which was founded in 1994 and this year splits into two separate events, with furniture and objets d’art granted their own fair, Antik Enteriőr, at the Ethnography Museum.
Meanwhile the rebranded flagship event – Budapest's Modern & Contemporary Art Fair – remains on… HEROES SQUARE.
In total some sixty galleries, half from Hungary, will be exhibiting at HEROES SQUARE Budapest Art Fair. The fair runs November 25-28 (VIP opening November 24).
