Writing is the origin of András Petőcz’s art, which regards creativity, and the written form of conveying ideas, as the central issue. The creative process differs from the classical form of fine art, as does the deconstruction of ideas and the exploration of a given work of art. The current exhibition at Műcsarnok presents the unique way in which he has created a perfect fusion of contemporary literature and visual art in a single oeuvre.
Alexandre Hollan’s ties with the Museum of Fine Arts look back on a history of two decades. Since 2001 he has made several donations of his works to our museum. In 2017, the artist made another significant donation comprising more than 100 of his pieces. The dossier exhibition in the Hungarian National Gallery presents a smaller selection of Hollan’s works, which recently entered our collection.
The first church of the Episcopate of Eger was built on the Castle Hill. Later the Roman and Gothic Cathedrals were built next to it. After the Tatar prowled Hungary, the castle was fortified and was continuously under construction until the beginning of the 18th century. The castle became known country-wide after it was heroically defended in 1552. It has been the symbol of patriotism since.
