International sound object exhibition

THE EXHIBITION CANNOT BE VISIT DURING MUSIC REHEARSALS! PLEASE CHECK THE TIME UNDER THE PROGRAMS

15 October – 26 November 2023.

FUGA Budapest Center of Architecture, 1052 Budapest V. Petőfi Sándor u.5
Opening hours: Wed – Sun 14:00 – 19:00 (Sun 15 Oct 11:00 – 16:00)

The Design Without Borders exhibition and all-arts event series will take place for the first time as a thematic exhibition with the
participation of 56 artists from 14 countries at the FUGA Budapest Center of Architecture. The special international selection was
born in connection with the 100th anniversary of composer György Ligeti’s birth and was inspired by Ligeti’s diverse creative
activity.

The selection will include material ranging from musical instruments based on traditions, through innovative new musical
instruments, sound furniture, sound objects created on the border of design and fine art, installations and the films presenting
them, to jewellery with sound or musical associations. In line with the all-arts spirit, the exhibition will be complemented by guided
tours, concerts and performances.

Each year the Design Without Borders exhibitions focus on artists from a specific country. In line with the Spanish focus, this year’s
selection will include works by two jewellery artists working with different creative attitudes: the unique ceramic jewellery of
world-famous Trinidad Conteras, and Juan José Ibáñez’s sounding brooches made by recycling old electric razors. And between
November 16 and 19 a prominent role will be given to Enrique del Castillo's sound object Phonoptic Reader and the performance
presenting it, which won the PowSOLO Best Sound Art award in 2020; as well as Sofia Montenegro's installation Ven y Ver, which
combines visuality with sound and performative elements.

A stand-alone unit of the exhibition is the IX.TEXHIBITION, which is also related to the Ligeti theme. Textile artists and a graphic
designer jointly designed an 11-piece textile series based on the composer's piano cycle Musica ricercata, consisting of 11 short
movements.

The founding curators of the exhibition are: interior designer Tamás Radnóti and Ferenczy Noémi Award laureate textile designer
Szilvia Szigeti.

The exhibition will be accomplished as part of the Budapest 150 commemorative year, with the financial support of the National
Cultural Fund of Hungary and the Pro Cultura Urbis Public Foundation, within the framework of the Design Without Borders 20th
anniversary exhibition series, as an official event of the Budapest Design Week.

Sponsors / Collaborating partners: the Cervantes Institute, the Polish Institute of Budapest, the Slovak Institute of Budapest, the Czech Centre Budapest.
