9. 10.– 19. 10. 2018 FISE Gallery in Budapest 22. 10.– 29. 10. 2018 Designblok in Prague 17. 5.–26. 5. 2019 Łódź Design Festival 2019 Bratislava Design Week
The exhibition presented at Budapest Design Week takes its name from a famous Polish tongue-twister Korale koloru koralowego…, which translates into English as coral-coloured corals. Agnieszka Jacobson-Cielecka, the curator of the exhibition, looks at the question of whether a country or region’s colour palette can be established. What are the colours of the Czech Republic? Poland? Slovakia? How about Hungary?
The exhibition analyses colours used by Czech, Polish, Slovak and Hungarian designers and their designs – vases, cups, fabrics – to try to discern if there are certain colour patterns that emerge – pinks and blues, greens and yellows.
Designers taking part in the exhbition include Dechem Studio, Klara Sumova, Milan Pekar, Roman Sedina and Geometr from the Czech Republic, Maria Jeglińska and Monika Patuszyńska from Poland, Linda Vikova, Simona Janisova and Michaela Bednarova from Slovakia, and Eszter Soptei, Edina Andrasi, Judit Lantos and Sara Kele from Hungary.
These projects are organised by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute operating under the Culture.pl brand as part of POLSKA 100, the international cultural programme accompanying the centenary of Poland regaining independence.
Financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland as part of the multi-annual programme NIEPODLEGŁA 2017-2021.
