Makovecz exhibition in Debrecen

„The quest to connect sky and earth has always been the single real and harmonious adventure for architecture… to find a way to enclose some sanctified intimacy from the cosmos…”

In honour of the Day of Hungarian Culture, on 22 January 2015 Debrecen’s Kölcsey Centre staged an exhibition of the works of Imre Makovecz, founder of the Hungarian Academy of Arts and a holder of the Ybl, Kossuth and Prima Primissima prizes and the Corvin Chain. 2015 is also the 80th anniversary year of the late master’s birth.

Titled “…Connecting sky and earth…” – the Art of Imre Makovecz, the exhibition showcases selected works from one of the most significant cultural events in 2014, the Makovecz oeuvre exhibition held in the Pesti Vigadó in Budapest. In addition to drawings, designs and photos of existing Makovecz buildings, the exhibition also featured large scale-models of his works. The exhibition was curated by Ybl Prize winning architect Lőrinc Csernyus.

At the opening ceremony, Szabolcs Komolay, vice mayor of Debrecen charged with cultural affairs, and curator Lőrinc Csernyus delivered welcome speeches. Ervin Nagy, Chief Architect of Hungary and a member of the Hungarian Academy of Arts opened the exhibition.

The event saw performances by Prima Primissima award winning folk musician and composer Ferenc Kiss and folk musician Balázs Dongó Szokolay. The exhibition also featured several projector presentations about Imre Makovecz, his sacred architecture and his organic worldview.

The exhibition was open until 1 March 2015.
