HMC is now accepting submissions for the Artists-in-Residence Program and exhibition in 2020 at AIR-HMC, Budapest-Hungary.
Venue: Hungarian Multicultural Center
Date: Extended Deadline: January 15, 2020
Ticket: Application fee: $25
The Hungarian Multicultural Center, inc. (HMC) is an award winning 501©3 non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting international art and the understanding of world cultures, through high quality art exhibitions, cultural exchanges and related educational programs. The mission of the HMC is to support artists and strengthen the arts in their vital role in the lives of people and communities. Our goal is to inform and educate the community at large through cross-cultural exchange, provide an opportunity for artists to work and exhibit in Hungary, and provide the artists with a supportive environment and uninterrupted time to work during the residency.

The HMC opened in 1990 as an artistic, educational institution by Beata Szechy, president/artist. We are invited more than 1,600 artists, writers, filmmakers who play an active part in the field of contemporary art. During the residency period, we hold exhibitions, through creative activities, presentations, workshops, and lectures by the artists.

The HMC set up shop in both the Texas and in Hungary, programming across borders, languages and cultures, as a sort of dual citizenship for artists' communities. Managing a double identity in the US and abroad reflects the HMC commitment to celebrating and understanding both the intersections and divergences between cultures, through the art, artists, and local communities.

From the start, HMC was conceived as an international meeting place for artists and intellectuals, fostering a lively transatlantic exchange in literature, the visual arts, performance and multimedia. While most of the arts programming"”including the residency"”takes place in Budapest, Hungary, the Dallas location continues to serve as the administrative hub, and host exhibitions, film screenings, and offers a variety of other programming, in addition to the residency.

Residencies are particularly fertile ground for exploring multinational exchange for a number of reasons. Bringing a group of artists together for an extended period of time allows the residents to uncover the connections and distinctions between them, and go beyond cultural stereotypes and surface impressions. The intimacy that grows from living and working in close proximity, and often sharing meals together, also provides artists-in-residence a unique opportunity to exchange ideas, traditions, and perspectives (and often, food!). The spirit of artistic experimentation and risk-taking that is at the core of residencies fosters an environment of openness that, time and time again, has encouraged collaboration, interaction and exchange between artists of different backgrounds, disciplines, and approaches

We are looking forward to receiving applications of artists who have interest in our program.

AIR/HMC, Budapest Residency is an opportunity for a small community of artists to work independently for a short term in Budapest. Our goal is to provide professional opportunities for individual or collaborating artists and encourage experimentation and inquiry in all media.
