It may be cold outside, but inside the exhibition halls of Art Market Budapest and Art Photo Budapest things are #heatingup. The fairs, running concurrently next week from October 13 to October 16 at the breathtaking Millenáris Park, will feature some of the hottest emerging artists and galleries in the contemporary art world. With an emphasis on “young Europe,” the exhibitors lists include names like acb Gallery, Pi Artworks, and LETO Gallery.

Highlights:

Be sure to stop by LETO’s booth to see works from Maurycy Gomulicki’s sensual “Nightflight to Venus” series.

You can skip the Hungarian coffee on your way there because Gomulicki’s vibrant pieces are guaranteed to wake you up (or make you spit take…after all, this is the man that created a collage mandala of vaginas and booby inspired buoys- you can giggle at those here).

Even if contemporary art isn’t really your thing, Art Market Budapest offers options for the historically inclined fair-goer. Don’t miss the featured guest exhibition by David Seymour ‘Chim’ entitled “Children of War” at D17 Gallery.

In his photo series, Chim beautifully captures the haunting innocence of children living in war-torn Europe during World War II.

The exhibition will be on view from October 14 to October 29.
