This year’s Ludvig International Artist Colony opens on Pentecost


On Pentecost, the 31st Ludvig International Artists’ Camp opens in Kisrécs, near Nagykanizsa, in which 35 artists from 12 countries will participate this time – the organizers of the camp informed MTI about the preparations on Thursday.

The artists’ camp in Kendlimajor is free to visit again this year, and they can take a look at the creative process of the artists. This time, there are no specific trends either, so the creators show a “wide range” for those interested in art.

The artist colony is mostly realized with the support of domestic and foreign private individuals and domestic companies, and to a lesser extent from one percent tax offers and funds won through tenders.

On the evening of May 28, Lúcia Tóth, the mayor of Kisrécse, will open the symposium, which will be greeted by the music of the Nagykanizsa County City Mixed Choir and the Tiborcz Trió. On May 30 at 5:00 p.m. in Nagykanizsa, the Thúry György Múzeum – Magyar Plakát Ház will open an exhibition entitled Ludvig 70 on the occasion of the birthday of Ludvig Zoltán, the artist colony’s namesake. The jubilee exhibition of the painter will be opened by mayor László Balogh and art historian Ferenc Matits.

In Kendlimajor, the day of art collectors is organized on June 3, the main message of which is that “the artist works for the public, the work of art can be bought, and it gains real meaning when it enters homes and collections, so anyone can be an art collector”. The next day, the traditionally announced open day of the artist colony will be held, although the two-week camp can be visited every day.

On June 6, the artists will go on a study trip and visit the Endre Szász Castle Museum in Várda. On Saturday, June 10, at 7 p.m., the results of the two weeks of the Ludvig artist colony will be presented at the final exhibition.
