Budapest Art Week To Host Some 100 Exhibitions
The fourth Budapest Art Week will host nearly 100 exhibitions between April 9 and 14, organisers told a press conference.

This year, some 100 fringe events and an art education programme involving some 500 students will also be held, Director Linda Bérczi said.

New venues include the Hopp Ferenc Asia Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, she said.

The main exhibition of the festival will be shown in the Mikve Gallery and focus on connections between contemporary Russian and Hungarian art, in parallel with the Budapest Spring Festival in which Russia is a guest of honour.

The exhibition will feature work by acclaimed artists such as the Blue Noses Group, Oleg Kulik, Chto Delat and the AES+F collective.
