Gallery Weekend Budapest is a contemporary art festival organized for the fifth time on 8-9 September 2018 by the Association of Hungarian Contemporary Art Galleries.
For a weekend, everything is about contemporary fine arts in Budapest: presentations, openings and tours in the best galleries. GWB is a unique opportunity for art lovers to get an insight into the sparkling art scene of one of the cultural capitals of the Eastern European region.
For those just getting to know contemporary fine arts it is worthwhile to survey the programmes of Budapest galleries, since the exhibition spaces are open to the public on Saturday and Sunday between 12 a.m. and 6 p.m. What is more, the participating artists, gallery owners and their colleagues will be happy to talk about the exhibited pieces. All the programmes are for free.
The participating galleries represent a select elite of the Budapest art scene: Art+Text Budapest, Chimera-Project Gallery, Deák Erika Gallery, Glassyard Gallery, Horizont Gallery, INDA Gallery, ISBN books+gallery, Knoll Gallery, Ani Molnár Gallery, TOBE Gallery, Trafó Gallery, Várfok Gallery and VILTIN Gallery
GWB is supported by the Municipality of Budapest and B. Braun.
