SLOVAK ARTISTS EXHIBIT ABROAD

Cipár displays in Budapest

ACCLAIMED Slovak artist Miroslav Cipár is currently displaying his latest work at the Slovak Institute in Budapest, on Rákocziho Street.

Entitled Out of Frame, the exhibition is a re-installation of the collection of Cipár's work that was introduced to the Slovak public in January at Bratislava's Zichy Palace. The collection consists of around 30 paintings and sculptures in which he humorously captures the imperfection of human beings. The title of the exhibition reflects the artist's thoughts about what would happen if his pictures exceeded their given space.

The exhibition runs until April 4.
