Adam Budak, September, 2012

Adam Budak is the guest of the Budapest Contemporary program

Adam Budak (PL) visited Budapest between the 24 and 28 September 2012 in the frame of ’Budapest Contemporary’ program. This was not the first visit for Budak in Budapest, and he has also collaborated with Hungarian artists before (as the co-curator of the Manifesta 7 in 2008 with Miklós Erhardt and the Little Warsaw collective), thus he happily accepted the invitation of the Association of Hungarian Contemporary Art Galleries, which made possible to further broaden his knowledge about the Hungarian art scene. During his stay in Budapest, Budak visited 14 contemporary art galleries, the Ludwig Museum, the Kunsthalle Budapest, Park Gallery, Studio Gallery and the Trafo Gallery, as well as he had studio visits with 7 Hungarian artists. Adam Budak studied theatre studies at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow and history and philosophy of art and architecture at the Central European University in Prague. He is a co-founder of the postgraduate ‘Studies in curatorial practice and theory’ at the Art History Institute of the Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland. Between 2003 and 2012 he was a contemporary curator at the Kunsthaus Graz am Landesmuseum Joanneum, Graz, Austria. Recently he works as a curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, USA.
