Péter Korniss is one of the greatest masters of contemporary Hungarian photography, a recipient of the “Artist of the Nation” award, the Kossuth Prize and the Joseph Pulitzer Memorial Prize. His work centres on documenting the disappearing lifestyle of peasants in Hungary and Transylvania. The series of images that are featured in this exhibition at the Hungarian National Gallery, titled Continuous Memory, concentrate on the most important aspects of his entire career.

The idea for this exhibition project was prompted by the fact that barely a hundred of the works in the Hungarian National Gallery’s rich collection of nineteenth- and twentieth-century sculpture (out of a total of almost 5,000 items) are regularly on public display. Our aim is to breathe new life into some of these museum sculptures, and to make them more visible with the help of some contemporary sculptors and other artists who work in three dimensions.

The memorial cabinet exhibition is to mark the centenary of the death of Viktor Madarász (1830–1917), a leading exponent of Hungarian history painting. The exhibition is based on previously unpublished research recently conducted in the archives of Paris; the results shine a new light on the œuvre of this important painter, and allow us to present the most productive period of his career, his Parisian years, with greater historical authenticity than ever before.
