EVENTS at the Long Night of Museums
LOUNGE – DJ TOLCSVAY’S MUSIC FROM 6 pm and 10 pm
GUIDED TOURS FOR CHILDREN:
4 pm and 5.30 pm Around the World in Sixty Minutes – guided tour by Nikolett Koós
You can travel by car, train, bus, plane, ship, and at times in your imagination. In these sixty minutes participants will use their imagination to explore the diverse landscapes and get a glimpse into the lives of people in various countries through pictures, scents, and sounds.
GUIDED TOURS IN HUNGARIAN:
7 pm and 8.30 pm Orient Express: Exotic Journeys through Nineteenth-Century Hungarian Art – Réka Krasznai’s guided tour
Have you always wanted to discover exotic and special cultures and rare customs? You are not the only one. The exotic Orient with its foreign culture looking back on a past of thousands of years attracted explorers and artists from the end of the eighteenth century. Thanks to the revived travelling frenzy, research into the East became a fashion. But how did all this come to be manifest in the arts? Join us on this journey to find out.
4.30 pm and 6 pm The Road Less Travelled – Painter, Leave the Beaten Path – Réka Krasznai’s guided tour in the exhibition titled Modern Times
Most artists follow in the footsteps of the great masters of the past: a mandatory aspect of the arts is carrying on traditions. But what happens when an artist walks down a road less travelled? If he or she creates something unconventional and special, it might lead to failure or going down in art history as an innovator genius or simply an eccentric. Truly daring and pioneering works that go against old forms come from artists walking the roads less travelled. Let us explore these paths together leading from Picnic in May by Pál Szinyei Merse to the mysterious world of Lajos Gulácsy and Tivadar Csontváry Kosztka.
5.15 pm and 7.45 pm The Hitchhiker’s Guide – Piroska Földváry’s guided tour in the exhibition titled Shifts – Hungarian Art after 1945
Travel through space and time. Only for advanced visitors.
6.30 pm and 9.30 pm Tour de France – or tour de show? From a Joiner’s Apprentice into a World Renowned Star: Mihály Munkácsy’s Years in Paris – Blanka Bán’s guided tour
Mihály Munkácsy’s masterpieces are well known but do you know where and under what circumstances they were made? What did it mean for an artist in the second half of the nineteenth century to live in Paris? The pictures on the guided tour will reveal the truth of what József Rippl-Rónai said with good reason: “those famous Munkácsy soirées were one in a million even in Paris…”
8.45 pm and 10 pm By land, water, and air… – guided tour in the permanent collection
Touring around the museum by water, on donkey back, and by apparition.
Walks through the history of the collections
30-minute tours by the volunteers of the Hungarian National Gallery in various exhibition units:
8.30 pm Dr Katalin Baracsi’s walk in the exhibition titled Shifts – Hungarian Art after 1945
9.30 pm Dr Katalin Baracsi’s walk in the exhibition titled Modern Times
5 pm – 7 pm Abstract Puppet Theatre
Visitors are invited to join a game inspired by the exhibition of Andor Weininger’s art. Continually changing, abstract spatial composition will be created from paper components. The game evoking the world of De Stijl, the Bauhaus, and Weininger is led by graphic artist Rozi Békés.
The workshop ends with a 30-minute lecture.
6 pm – 10 pm Travel Diary (Viola Varga)
Whether you travel in a hot air balloon, on a sailboat, or by train, keeping a travel diary is a must. You can make your own little travel diary and fill it later with the details of your next trip.
8.30 pm Prosody (detail) – Feledi Project
Prosody. In music, prosody means the accordance of text and music, musical rhythms and accents following the intonation and stresses of a text. Dance and Kodály’s music are fused together to convey different feelings. The dance performance was realised with the participation of the Trio à la Kodály.
SELF/IMAGES – a game of self-knowledge
A game of self-knowledge inspired by the collections of the Hungarian National Gallery, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Vasarely Museum, and the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Arts.
Walk around among the paintings, seek your own path, complete the stations and make decisions according to your temperament and taste until you find your painted alter ego.
