Holy Mary Chapel at Lake Gébárti inaugurated

On Assumption Day, 15 August, the Holy Mary Chapel by Lake Gébárti in Zalaegerszeg was inaugurated. The inauguration ceremony of the newly built chapel was attended by mayor Zoltán Balaicz and Member of Parliament László Vígh who also delivered speeches at the event. Other attendees included György Fekete, honorary chairman of the Hungarian Academy of Arts and Marianne Szabó, the widow of Imre Makovecz. The Holy Mary Chapel was consecrated by László Kiss-Rigó, the bishop of the Szeged-Csanád diocese.

The chapel was designed by MAKONA Kft. using Imre Makovecz’s sketches as the basis of the final design. Construction was enabled by a HUF 100 million subsidy provided through Government Decree 2022/2015 on safeguarding and promoting the oeuvre of Imre Makovecz. Further, special mention is to be made of the relentless efforts of Tibor Fülöp, who oversaw construction and also participated in volunteer work.

Exhibition in Mongolia’s Capital, Ulaanbaatar

An exhibition of the works of Imre Makovecz opened at the Mongolian fine Arts Gallery in Ulaanbaatar. The exhibition is sponsored by the Hungarian Academy of Arts (HAA) and is open to the public until 13 December 2018. Representing the HAA, the exhibition’s curator is Ybl-prize winning architect Lőrinc Csernyus.

Just one week before the Ulaanbaatar event, a similar exhibition opened in the South Uralian city of Izhevsk, showcasing Imre Makovecz’s architecture. Izhevsk is the sixth and final stop of the highly successful travelling exhibition that has been staged in several cities in Russia over the past few years.

Seven Towers Festival! 2018

Upon its launch, the first Seven Towers Festival was inspired by the message of the Hungarian pavilion designed by Imre Makovecz for the Expo ’92 in Seville. His building designs inspired the topics of the 2018 festival.

Visitors to the Seven Towers festival can enjoy the works of 80 artists and 10 exhibitions, 16 concerts, light painting and folk dance programmes between 7 and 20 November 2018 in Budapest, Csíkszereda, Kolozsvár, Szigetvár, Kakasd, Paks, Csenger, Nagygéc, Tokaj and Bak.
