Garry Winogrand: Women Are Beautiful

Garry Winogrand, the “pioneer of street photography” captured the women int he United States of America in the 1960s and 1970s with quick and accurate timing through special angles. During the second wave of feminism and in the age of sexual revolution, the figure of a confident, happy, free, rebellious and beautiful woman is reflected through the lens of Winogrand through everyday scenes of life – by the swimming pool, on the beach, on the street.

The Grand Crossing

Because of the unusually cold winter of 2016–2017, there was an event called the Grand Crossing, with people skating across the frozen Lake Balaton. During this event, several photographers were present on the ice, taking photos at various locations and in different moments of time, and shared them on social media too. Besides the exhibition being permeated by a sense of ease, it also provides an opportunity to raise critical questions related to contemporary photography and curatorial practices, since these photos slid into the exhibition area from the virtual space.

Water Studies – A solo show of Csilla Klenyánszki

23 June, 2018 – 29 August, 2018

It is one of the strongest Dutch artistic practices that Csilla Klenyánszki continues with many of her works in the context of contemporary photography – this is the historical practice of still life dating back to the sixteenth century. [...] On Klenyánszki’s photos, therefore, we can see neither faces, nor figures, only familiar, simple objects along with deformed bodies and body parts treated as objects. In the series entitled Water Studies she included towers, bridges, fountains, bubbles, all made up of everyday objects belonging to her private space to enlighten their symbolic contents.

Sylvia Plachy: When Will It Be Tomorrow

2018. 06. 23. – 2018. 09. 02.

Sylvia Plachy, the Hungarian-born photographer, is one of the few – and the only one who is also a friend of André Kertész – who represent humanist photography in the 21st century by reinventing it in our contemporary times. Invoking a question from her childhood in its title, the exhibit When Will It Be Tomorrow displays a selection of the artist’s work spanning sixty years, from 1958 till 2018. The photographs show Plachy’s unique image-creating ability in capturing the fallibility of human existence as she takes the viewer on a journey behind the moments she records seemingly unnoticed.
