Endre Rozsda’s highly prestigious solo exhibition, Everybody Has A Dream, not only acts as closure for this year’s exhibition series in the Várfok Gallery, but also as an opening to the planned series of events in celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Gallery in 2020.

The presence and significance of Endre Rozsda, who was born in Hungary (1913, Mohács/H – 1999, Paris/F), yet spent most of his life in Paris, is undeniable in relation to the course of the history of 20th century art: he becomes one of the founders of the post-war progressive, Hungarian concourse called European School, he is a member of the private circle of André Breton and other surrealists, and he participates in several outstanding group exhibitions, in Cologne, Munich and Paris, focusing on the concepts and origins of surrealism. Awarded the Copley prize in 1964 by a renowned jury, including such figures as Hans Arp, Max Ernst, Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp, from 1976 onwards  he lives and works in the legendary Bateau‐Lavoir until his death. In 1987 he is honoured with the official degree of the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and, later, in 1998, with the official cross of the Hungarian Republican Merit. His artworks enrich not only private collections but the collections of numerous leading museums, not least of which are the Parisian Centre Pompidou and Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, The Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna in Rome, as well as the Hungarian National Gallery and the Ludwig Museum in Budapest.

The exhibition in the Várfok Gallery marks the 20th Anniversary of the death of the artist. In connection with the series of events organised by the Parisian Society of Friends of Endre Rozsda in September, the Várfok Gallery’s exhibition serves to commemorate the artist in the country of his birth.

The exhibition, Everybody Has A Dream, recalls Rozsda’s kaleidoscope-like painting style in which time and space merge into themselves, appearing as ornamental fabric structures densely interwoven by motifs. Additionally, his paintings combine abstract forms with figurative details as may be seen in his portraits and self-portraits. Moreover, a recently found series, titled Reflections (Reflets), created in the 1980s and featuring small-sized works, will be exhibited for the first time ever in Hungary.

To complement the paintings, the exhibition will also feature a selection of Rozsda’s graphic works. These, created mainly in ink and watercolour, primarily reflect the peculiar surrealistic world of Rozsda: odd creatures, dream-like figures and ethereal women populate the paperworks. Indeed, following his settling permanently in Paris in 1956,  Rozsda no longer joins any art movements, and from then onwards his way of thinking is closest to that of  the surrealists, shown in his creation of liberating dreams and  associations, all tightly connected to the methodology of surrealism. By exhibiting his paperworks the visitor will gain an insight into a further dimension of the artist’s work.

The close and productive relationship between Endre Rozsda and the Várfok Gallery dates from 1999. On this occasion, visitors to the Gallery will be able to view what is, in effect, the eleventh solo exhibition of the artist. His previous exhibition, held in 2017 in the Várfok Gallery, represented a retrospective of his lifetime work in the Parisian Orangerie du Sénat. Everybody Has A Dream will both complement and build on that.
