A WOMAN ARTIST: THE FACE OF THE ERA

30 May 10:00 - 30 June 18:00

 
A WOMAN ARTIST: THE FACE OF THE ERA

Discover the works of Georgian women artists from the past century to the present day.

In May 2024, the Pesti Vigadó halls will host an exhibition titled A Woman Artist: The Face of the Era, the first-ever event in Hungary to introduce the art of Georgian women of the last century and current millennium to the Hungarian audience and to celebrate Georgia’s Independence Day on May 26. The show will last till the end of June.

The exhibition will feature works by Helene Akhvlediani, Ketevan Maghalashvili, Tamara Abakelia, Esma Oniani, Lia Shvelidze, and Sopho Cherkezishvili, representing four generations of Georgian women artists. The show, spanning 100 years (1924–2024), unites pieces of Modernist and Socialist Realism art, as well as non-ideological art of the Thaw period, and Postmodern art.

Pieces united under the theme A Woman: A Symbol of Modernization showcase mostly the first half of the twentieth century, which enables the audience to explore the works of those artists who themselves became the harbingers of emancipation. Another set of works by contemporary women artists exploring the postmodern woman’s inner self, her loneliness and fragility, and her desire for independence falls under the broad theme of A Woman as the Main Motive in Art.

All artistic trends and movements that emerged in Georgia despite the isolation of the Soviet era and the challenges of the young nation’s self-identity demonstrate a strong alignment between Georgian and European cultures.

The exhibition of Georgian painters is being hosted by Pesti Vigadó for the first time. The majority of the exhibits come from the Georgian National Museum of Art and the Georgian National Gallery’s collections, as well as the artists’ collections.

The event is organized by the Ministry of Culture and Sport of Georgia in collaboration with the Embassy of Georgia to Hungary, the Hungarian Academy of Arts, and the Pesti Vigado.

The Georgian National Gallery is the curator of the exhibition
