‘The eye of the storm’ : Hungarian art exhibition
Covering ceramics, textiles, graphic art, photography, architecture and interior design, this exhibition explored 1930s Hungarian design and the invigoration of postwar visual and material culture in Britain by Hungarian émigrés fleeing war-torn Budapest. Given the current population shifts within Europe, this is a timely review of the creative and economic contribution that refugees have made to British culture. It was curated by Juliet Kinchin of the University of Glasgow, using loans from the Hungarian Museums of Applied Art and Architecture, as well as key public and private collections in the UK. It was supported by an illustrated catalogue, conference and education programme.
