Functioning for more than five decades, the Studio of Young Artists Association is a professional nonprofit organization that provides dynamic responses to current art and social issues. It has a membership of around 450 artists, art historians, and critics. The association’s objective is to facilitate the emergence and work of its members in cultural and artistic life.
We maintain relationships with Hungarian and foreign art organizations from Finland to New York. We foster the establishment of professional contacts as well as our members’ presence in Hungarian and international exhibitions and residencies, and provide them with information and organizational support. We also help curators and artists get in contact with the young Hungarian art scene and build collaborations.
The association’s permanent exhibition space is the Studio Gallery, whose aim is to provide space for the realization of the most current, progressive projects. Along with exhibitions, the gallery also organizes events that make encounters possible between the wider public and the artists (through artists’ lectures, video projections, discussions, etc.).
