Sean Scully exhibition to open at Hungarian National Gallery's Museum of Fine Arts
7 October 2020
From 13 October 2020 to 15 January 2021, the Hungarian National Gallery will present 'Sean Scully: Passenger – a retrospective' at it's Museum of Fine Arts – the first exhibition following the Museum's temporary closure due to the coronavirus pandemic. The show surveys all the major periods of the artist’s oeuvre from his early experiments in the 1960s, through the minimalism of the 1970s, and the compositions of the 1980s built from expressive bands and marked by plasticity, to his groups of works associated with window and wall motifs, all the way to his recent turn to figuration.
The sixty or so works on display will include monumental paintings and paper works as well as sculptural and photographic compositions. 'Passenger' explores the way in which Scully reinterprets the traditions of abstraction and broadens its definition, placing his works in dialogue with classical pieces from the Museum's collection.
