PRESS RELEASE JULIAN SCHNABEL: Printed Works 1983 – 2018 (07/13/2019 - 10/05/2019)

The Művészetek Háza Veszprém announces its upcoming retrospective survey of the printed works by artist Julian Schnabel from 1983 to the present. More Shorter

The Művészetek Háza Veszprém announces its upcoming retrospective survey of the printed works by artist Julian Schnabel from 1983 to the present. The public will now have the opportunity to see an extensive view of Schnabel’s work in this medium, a significant part of his oeuvre but one that has been infrequently examined.  This is his first print exhibition ever in Hungary, and it includes freshly made works created last year.

This exhibition reflects Schnabel’s unique vision, an inventor who is continuously creating ways of printing that is always a surprise. There are prints printed on velvet, maps of the world, others have collage images that have been lithographically printed and laminated to etchings.

Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1951, Schnabel’s first major solo exhibition was at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston in 1976, followed by a solo show at Mary Boone Gallery in New York City in 1979.  It was there that Schnabel exhibited his plate paintings for the first time. Paintings with broken dishes, the  "plate paintings" received a laudatory welcome, while at the same time a boisterous and controversial one.  In 1981, Schnabel was the youngest artist in A New Spirit in Painting show at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, curated by Nicholas Serota, Christos M. Joachimides and Normal Rosenthal, along with Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon, Gerhard Richter, Georg Baselitz, Sigmar Polke, and Markus Lüpertz.

Schnabel’s work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions all over the world including Kunsthalle Basel; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Kunsthalle Düsseldorf; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; Palazzo Venezia, Rome; Schloss Derneburg, Germany; Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada; Museo Correr, Italy; J.F. Willumsen Museum, Denmark; The Brant Foundation Art Study Center, Greenwich; Dallas Contemporary; Dairy Art Centre, London; Museu de Arte de São Paulo; Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale; the University of Michigan Museum of Art, and the Musée d’Orsay, Paris. As well as the most prominent galleries in the world including Leo Castelli Gallery, New York; Galerie Yvon Lambert, Paris; The Pace Gallery, New York; Galerie Bruno Bischofberger, St. Moritz and Zurich; Gagosian Gallery, New York and Los Angeles; Almine Rech Gallery, Paris; CFABerlin,Blum & Poe, Los AngelesMax Hetzler Gallery Berlin Schnabel’s work is included in the public collections of the Kunstmuseum Basel; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Guggenheim Museum, New York and Bilbao; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Ludwig Museum, Cologne Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, among others.

Schnabel’s interest in the ‘making of things’ has led him into the realms of other practices including filmmaking. In 1996 Schnabel wrote and directed the feature film Basquiat about fellow New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.  The film was in the official selection of the 1996 Venice Film Festival. Schnabel’s second film, Before Night Falls, based on the life of the late exiled Cuban novelist Reinaldo Arenas, won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Coppa Volpi for best actor, Javier Bardem, at the 2000 Venice Film Festival.  In 2007 Schnabel directed his third film, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.  Schnabel received the award for Best Director at the Cannes Film Festival as well as Best Director at the Golden Globe Awards, where the film won Best Film in a Foreign Language.  The Diving Bell and the Butterfly was also nominated for four Oscars.  That same year, 2007, he made a film of Lou Reed’s Berlin concert at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn.  His fifth film Miral, a polemical movie about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, won the UNESCO as well as the UNICEF award at the 2010 Venice Film Festival. Miral was shown at the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations. His most recent film “Van Gogh – At Eternity’s Gate” from 2018 is a profound portrait told in the first person of the Dutch painter and his time in Arles For his role as Vincent van Gogh Willem Defoe won the Coppa Volpi for best actor at the Venice Film Festival and was nominated for Best Actor at the 2019 Golden Globes and Oscars.

The Tower’s foundation is on the square’s level in front of the Castle hill, its entrance opened from the inner parts of the castle and it is several metres above the foundation. The tower’s floor plan can be found on survey drawings of Giulio Turco, the Emperor’s war engineer, which was made around 1570.

PERMANENT EXHIBITIONS AT THE SALESIANUM (07/08/2016 - 12/31/2017)

Liturgical place to exhibit, baroque rooms, room for the herbs of Halimba, show room for violin fabrication, medical herb garden and a lot of other curiosity from the offer of the Salesianum’s permanent exhibitions. More Shorter

Liturgical place to exhibit 

The attic gallery was designed on the second floor of the building, where visitors can take a look on the day-to-day-life of the Archdiocese and can get to know the everyday use of liturgical objects. A liturgical calendar is cited by multimedia tools, liturgy devices are displayed for the visitors, they can also visit the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Veszprém’s store of sheet music and can listen to the musical creations from the 19-20th century. The visitors can take a virtual tip in the Archdiocese and in Veszprém via an interactive multimedia device, while they can discover the past and the present of the virtually visited places.


Baroque rooms

Four interior styled, fresco decorated baroque room awaits the visitors on the floor of the Salesianum. They can experience the atmosphere of the baroque world through contemporary artworks. Visitors have the opportunity to know more about former, well-known residents of the house, including Martin II. Padányi-Bíró the bishop of Veszprém, who was an outstanding patron of the artistic work in the diocese during the 18th century. They can admire the landscape themed frescos from the end of the 18th century, which can be found in every room on the given floor in an exigent quality, differently from the baroque practice. With the guidance of the “Picture-counter desk” it is possible to follow the work of the restorers and the wonderful alteration of the baroque rooms. In the other two rooms the hidden treasures of the Bishop Archive and Library are displayed: incunabula, scrapbooks- and albums, manuscripts, maps and certificates.


Room for the herbs of Halimba

At the right side of the entrance is the Halimba Medical-Herb-room, which displays the story of Dr. Miklós Szalai, also known as the “medical herb” priest from Halimba. The nationwide known herbalist was pronounced a charlatan before the transition, but later the Halimbárium medical herb mixtures were named after him. At the exhibition dried medical herb tableaus and glass covered containers show the medical-and culinary herbs, the recipes of the “medical herb” priest, and also some interesting information about medical herbs and herbal teas.


Show room for violin fabrication

Who does not longed for being the invisible viewer the birth of something new. Looking through a window, watching the smooth hand moves, while those hands are brushing the lumber with a plane again and again, always finding something to stroke the spot we thought was already perfect. Taking a deep breathe of the workshop’s scent, the scent from the bland, resin released from shavings, glue and vapor of plants. To be the witness how lumber turns into a soul touching musical instrument. Who does not longs for this…

In the workshop of Archdiocese Touristic Center of the Salesianum all of this is possible.

Violin always have got a special attention among the instruments. Its birth was surrounded with mystery. What is this secret? The lumber? The lacquer? The mater’s hands?

Elemér Sümegi’s workshop, in a small building in the court of Archdiocese Touristic Center of the Salesianum, can be visited since 2011. The baroque surrounding, in front of the Archbishop Palace, of the former Bíró – Giczey house or as the residents of Veszrpém known the “bird house” seemingly offered the establishment of the violin making workshop. The visitor can be the witness some workflow: formation of a new violin or cello, even old instrument’s restoration.

The carpenter tool collection from the 19th and early 20th century commemorates former artisan masters in the workshop.

Unusual lessons, group sessions, presentations are available with previous consultation for school-, work groups and group of friends.

Veszprém, a fesztiválváros


Veszprém, the city of festivals (01/01/2015 - 12/31/2015)

Playing is a joy that we can all claim as eternal children all year round. If you do not believe it, you can see it for yourself! We celebrate dance, arts and our traditions, street music, boystrous children, happiness and the love-bearing summer with festivals. More Shorter

The Festival of Dance opens the events in Spring with the greatest contemporary dance artists in Hungary. The best dance groups and performers enchant the audiences during the days of the festival, which is regarded as a prestige event for the profession. The Gizella Days Festival, one of the largest cultural events of the city, encourages the generations to appreciate and promote our culture and traditions. The festival provides opportunities to perform with the arts ensembles of Veszprém and its twin towns, as well as the art groups of the minorities living here.

In Summer, Veszprém also enjoys its festivals...

Al Dimeola, Paco de Lucia, Bobby McFerrin, Katie Melua … Veszprém is the city where for almost a decade world famous stars have walked our cobblestoned streets. Opera, jazz, soul, swing and instrumental guitar music... Veszprém is the place where the most different musical styles and genres form a coherent entity in the frame of VeszprémFest.

VeszprémFest has become one of the most renowned high quality music events in Hungary, and, like a magnet, has attracted thousands into the majestic atmosphere of Veszprém Castle. The 18th century Baroque style façades and excellent acoustics of the Szentháromság (Holy Trinity) Square are unique props serving the excellent musical experience.

Besides VeszprémFest, there are various other artistic and cultural events, including Folklore Festivities and Best of the World Evenings in August. The Vivace International Choir Festival attracts participants from Japan to Finland and thousands visit the Veszprém Festivities Crafts Fair as well.

Mates, party and rock and roll... the Street Music Festival provides all of these in the middle of the summer, when street performers  representing various styles fill the squares of the city centre, tuning, strumming, drumming and singing from dawn to dawn.

Having fun with us... because Veszprém does not think only of the ‘eternal children’! The youngest ones can enjoy the Kabóciádé Children’s Festival, where the empire of the puppets offer treasures to discover and playing is always fun.

 We need to play, as we know from Shakespeare “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players”. Veszprém is proud to have three theatres where the talents perform on the stages from week to week.

In the city’s 103-year-old stone Petőfi Theatre and in the recently refurbished Bujtor-Latinovits Chamber Theatre exciting plays of contemporary Hungarian and international playwrights are performed by excellent actors and actresses without forgetting the classic pieces. The theatres also tempt visitors with musicals, children’s and other plays offering light entertainment.

The Pannon Theatre has been offering high quality performances for ten years now, not only in their theatre building but also in the culture centres of rural areas, in retro venues or even in the environment of the castles and the fortresses of the Bakony. The theatre has helped to breathe life into and has been organising the Veszprém Spring Festival, the Festival of Dance and also the FüredFest on the shore of Lake Balaton, offering spectacular programmes from spring to autumn.

In our welcoming and family friendly city the little ones are not left out of the theatrical programmes as the Kabóca Puppet Theatre is open for them all year round. Here they can be part of a real company game: the puppet exhibition in the Puppet Den, play groups, adventures, fun guided tours and last but not least the puppet theatre performances provide great fun and entertainment.

We open the gates of the festivals and theatres of Veszprém and invite you kindly with the respect due to kings and queens to enjoy these fabulous and magical happenings!
