The touring exhibition titled The Journey – János Fajó and the Pesti Workshop will be launched in several Chinese venues in cooperation with MNB Arts and Culture, the cultural branch of the Central Bank of Hungary (Magyar Nemzeti Bank, MNB) and the Fajó Foundation. The first exhibition will open in Shanghai’s Liu Haisu Art Museum on 19 August 2023.
When an expanding collection wants to preserve its momentum, it cannot stay within the confines of the local art scene for long. Instead, it has to be activated and re-investigated in various new contexts, generating several alternative interpretations that further inform the collection’s pieces. MNB Arts and Culture has shifted its attention, thus, to re-imagining the perspectives of Hungarian art on an international scale.
