Laco Teren – Nothing Will Stop Us

The exhibition of Laco Teren (born in 1960 in Bratislava) presents the key points of his artistic program and comprehensively captures his unique artistic and genuinely “versatile” personality. He was one of the leading figures of the post‑Modernist generation, which in the mid‑1980s appeared on the art scene with a program of Neo‑Expressionist painting inspired by the Italian trans‑avant‑garde and German Neue Wilde movement. »

“I am an artist of the world…” Philip de László (1869–1937)

This small but significant exhibition will mark the 150th anniversary of Philip de László’s birth in Budapest.
