The Friends of the Vasarely Foundation offer you, accompanied by Agnès Ghenassia,
a trip to Budapest and Pécs from May 27 to June 1, 2020.
Budapest and Pécs are the two Hungarian cities to which Victor Vasarely donated part of his work and both dedicate a museum to the famous child of the country.
But Budapest is above all a dynamic, cheerful European metropolis, which preserves the traces of a rich and tumultuous past with baroque districts, rococo, art nouveau, Bauhaus (..and Stalinist architecture), which has beautiful museums and perpetuates in daily of ancient traditions, such as thermal baths, crafts, and a cuisine rich in goulash, stews and creamy pastries. In addition, during the last week of May, we will enjoy a biennial of contemporary art which allows dynamic gallery owners to promote the young scene of Hungarian creators.
We will devote a day to visiting Pécs, 200 km southwest of Budapest (round trip by bus), a small university and cultural town famous among other things for its Zsolnay (art nouveau style) ceramic factory.
