Works on the Edge
A new selection of the collection of the Ludwig Muzeum
Opening: March 15 - December 31 2005
Our new exhibition opening on 15 March will display the well-known visitors' favourites and also the museum's new aqusisitions and some pieces submitted exclusively for this occasion to represent the newest tendencies. While the 1996 exhibition concentrated on the "big classics" (Picasso and American Popart: Oldenburg, Warhol, Rauschenberg and Lichtenstein) and the art of the early 1990's, this selection will premiÃ©re quite a few fresh works, with some remarkable projects from the museum's earlier exhibitions (Judit Hersko, Gusztav Hamos-Katja Pratschke, Jaan Toomik, L. A. Raeven).
Ludwig Muzeum is the only museum of contemporary art in Hungary to collect international art. 2005 is a turning point in the life of the museum: from the Royal Palace it moves to a new location in the south of Budapest, the Palace of Arts of the Millennium City where the collection and the exhibitions are to be granted a fully update technology meeting the highest standards of today's museology. On three storeys in the Danube wing the museum has a 3300m2 exhibition space. On 1300 m2 on the first floor the temporary exhibitions, while on the upper two storeys the collection is going to be presented.
