Hungarian Photography

Oct. 18, 2016-Jan. 8, 2017
Boca Raton Museum of Art

In partnership with the Hungarian Museum of Photography in Budapest, the Museum presents an overview of the history of photography in Hungary with a selection of over 30 works from the early to late 20th century by photographers such as André Kertész, László Moholy-Nagy, Brassaï, Robert Capa, György Lõrinczy, and others. Péter Baki, director of the Hungarian Museum of Photography, is our guest curator for the exhibition.

This exhibition is part of a suite of four exhibitions collectively entitled Art of Hungary, which is made possible by the Museum’s Exhibition Leadership Fund with major support generously provided by the Estate of Ruth Feigl, Jody H. & Martin Grass, Dalia & Duane Stiller, Lisette Model Foundation, Nancy G. Brinker, Quinnipiac University’s Central European Institute, the Hungary Initiatives Foundation, and the Museum’s Friends Auxiliary.
