Arranged in all three spaces of acb Gallery, our latest exhibition reveals noteworthy oeuvre of Árpád fenyvesi Tóth, which has mostly remained unknown and unaddressed by art historical narratives. Following a few years spent in Budapest, poet, artist and networker Árpád fenyvesi Tóth (29 July 1950, Balatonfenyves – 2014, Balatonfenyves) retreated to the countryside to create his works, far from the scenes of official and underground culture. His art was a fusion of the best traditions of progressive art and the classical avant-garde. Although he was familiar with the inner circles of the Hungarian neo-avant-garde and participated in its most important forums, such as the Chapel Exhibitions at Balatonboglár and the shows of the Young Artists’ Club, his endeavours were associated more with the heritage of the historical avant-garde, the work of Lajos Kassák and the spirit of the Bosch+Bosch group in Subotica.
