About the exhibition:

The Image of Colour, the Mystery of Image, presents a comprehensive selection of monochrome paintings from the Antal-Lusztig Collection. This collection is recognised as one of the most significant private collections in Hungary, and a major group of works from it have been deposited in the museums of Debrecen. Focusing on the tradition of exhibiting works from the Antal-Lusztig Collection, this selection comprises several hundred national and international works. Dr. Péter Antal, the owner, began his acquisition of monochrome paintings in the mid-2000s, and the collection of more than five hundred works constitutes a separate segment of his collection. Over the past decades, a selection of these monochrome works has been featured in several exhibitions in Hungary and abroad.

The current exhibition, featuring selected works from the monochrome segment of the Antal-Lusztig Collection, is organised into seven + one separate units. It aims to guide the visitor along a path, both physical and imaginary, that begins with an exploration of the material components of painting. The journey then progresses through the research of monochrome painters, delving into the foundational concepts of painting, concepts such as gesture, the space of the image, the boundaries of the image, and the layers of the image. The works of national and international artists, organised into sections, serve to refine general ideas about these fundamental concepts. Moreover, the exhibition introduces visitors to the mystery of painting, which, following the liberation of the material of paint, has given rise to a unique type of portraiture that depicts the image of colour.

With their participation, visitors accept that audio and video recordings will be made during given events, which could be used for promotional purposes on MODEM’s social platforms. We reserve the right to change the program.
