"Ali Tóth has - save a brief stint in Paris - always called
Budapest his home and has pretty much been immersed
in the world of fashion for about as long. Together with
friend and stylist Anikó Virág, among others, Ali is founder
of Hungary's first alternative and international fashion arts
magazine, The Room. Locally, Ali and his creative contemporaries
are leading the charge of fresh and independent fashion industry,
while squarely placing Budapest and the Hungarian creative
community in the international spotlight."
The Ludwig Museum presents Rita Ackermann’s solo show as part of its series featuring Hungarian artists and artists of Hungarian origin whose works are less known in their native country. Rita Ackermann's exhibition in Budapest is centred around her work of the last three years, including paintings, drawings, prints and videos, as well as all of the material she produced most recently during the Marfa/Chinati artist-in-residence program, which marks a milestone in the artist's career.
The exhibition is being accompanied by a series of film screenings, seeking to afford an insight into the spirit of an era that had a crucial influence on the New York-based artist’s career in the late 1980s and 90s, and that has continued to colour the development of her work today.
