About the event
14th Bátor Tábor Contemporary Art Auction, Budapest
Date: 10 May 2018
Place: Kiscell Museum, Budapest
We organized the 14th Contemporary Art Auction on 10th of May 2018 at the imposing Kiscell Museum. Thanks to our professional jury members we provided this year again a great selection of artworks. Year by year our auction draws more and more attention which obliges us to care for the maximum quality of the hammered pieces of art.
The selection of the auction material looks as following:
- 55 – 60 hungarian art pieces
- 25 great international art pieces (from artists with Hungarian and East-Central European roots)
- 10 art pieces from young, talented artists, who are lesser-known in the world of art yet
The professional jury members are:
- Daniel Hug, Carl Kostyál, Rózsa Farkas, Peter Peri and András Szántó as the members of jury with immense authority in the world of art, juried the creative activity of artists with Hungarian and East-Central European roots, living and working abroad, giving them an opportunity to participate in the Auction by presenting one piece each.
- The selection of the pieces by Hungarian artists is a result of the largest professional co-operation yet. With the involvement of our five-member jury Gábor Pados, Margit Valkó, Attila Pőcze, Gábor Einspach and Orsolya Hegedüs, a wonderful Hungarian selection will be born.
- Few years ago we launched a new initiative to invite young, talented, but yet lesser-known artists to apply to participate in the auction. Today many of them are invited without having to compete, but we have kept the opportunity open to newcomers to present themselves in this way. Each artist could apply with a single piece of art, and the jury decides by secret online vote. The tradition continued this in 2018 too with the support of the 3-member panel consists of Spengler Katalin, Székely Katalin and Sasvári Edit.
Theis year’s 92 pieces selected for the auction were prominently exhibited at the Kiscell Museum. The guided tour and the auction is led by Nóra Winkler in cooperation with the specialists from Kieselbach Gallery.
The event accompanying the CAA Budapest give the invited participants (among whom we find foreign and Hungarian artists, directors of galleries, curators and collectors) a unique possibility of taking a close, insightful look at contemporary Hungarian art, which is slowly coming onto the European stage. The competition aimed at young, talented, yet unknown artists gives them a chance to present their blossoming skills in front of an international audience.
