If it’s Wednesday, it’s Wine Wednesday!
Many things have been changing around us but – we hope – that one thing remains unchanged: the Wine Wednesdays, which have now traditionally been held at the Vasarely Museum and the Hungarian National Gallery. Wine and the fine arts equally form an integral part of Hungarian culture so a better match would be hard to find. The successful Wine Wednesday evenings are guaranteed to bring a vibrant atmosphere, fine wines and inspiring guided tours to audiences along with presentations linked to the evenings’ central themes and memorable concerts.
The Wine Wednesdays in the Vasarely Museum in 2020 are literally one-off events since for some time now the museum’s doors re-open on these evenings to entertain visitors with unforgettable experiences. This year’s first events will be held at the Vasarely Museum in Óbuda on 19 and 26 August. On the Wine Wednesday evening on 19 August, titled Harmonies and Shades and on the one titled Reflections and Contrasts, held on 26 August, the Vasarely Museum awaits the public with Victor Vasarely’s oeuvre exhibition and the seasonal show Code and Algorithm as well as guided tours, exquisite wines, classical and contemporary music and dance performances by Art Bonbons and its well-known refreshing green environment.
The five Wine Wednesday evenings held at the Hungarian National Gallery in 2020 will explore a different permanent exhibition each time. On 2 September the evening titled A Taste of Realism takes visitors on a journey through the exhibition Variations on Realism – From Munkácsy to Mednyánszky. The evening titled Grape Harvest without Boundaries from Delacroix to Vasarely on 9 September will introduce the public to the gallery’s collection of International Art after 1800, while the Wine Wednesday on 16 September is aptly titled Tipsy in Style in the 19th Century. On 23 September, visitors to the evening titled From Rise to Delirium will gain an insight into the first half of the 20th century, and this year’s closing event on 30 September, titled Long Shift, linked to the permanent exhibition Shifts – Hungarian Art after 1945, will focus on the art of the second half of the 20th century. And to top the experiences provided by the stunning masterpieces, some long-awaited art historical delicacies, the scrumptious wines and the live music matching the theme of the given evenings, visitors can enjoy the unrivalled panorama of Budapest from the gallery’s dome.
Spend a great evening with us again and taste the fine selections brought to you from a different winery on each Wine Wednesday.
