The Geometry of Sublime

Selection from the Antal-Lusztig and Vass Collections

12 July – 14 September 2014

In the exhibition the history of the 20th Century Hungarian modern and avant-garde art is outlined through the dialogue of two Hungarian art collections. The Geometry of Sublime not merely places the parallel story of the two collections next to each other but explicitly focuses on initiating a dialogue between pure abstraction and traditional nature-depiction through the notion of sublime.
