Budapest, January 14 (MTI) – Hundreds of thousands have visited the oeuvre exhibition of Hungarian modernist artist László Moholy-Nagy in New York and Chicago, and his works will also be exhibited in Los Angeles.
Foreign affairs state secretary for cultural and science diplomacy István Ijgyártó said on public news channel M1 late on Saturday that about 100,000 people have seen the exhibition in New York’s Guggenheim Museum and 150,000 in Chicago. The exhibitions have attained their aim to draw the attention of the US public to the diversity of Hungarian art and creativity, he said.
Ijgyarto said it is impossible to imagine Hungarian modernism without knowledge of the oeuvre of Moholy-Nagy, whom he called the most original and versatile artist of the 20th century, who made a name for himself just for this reason in his own era in the United States.
