Horizont Gallery was established in 2015 by arts manager Balázs Arató. An antecedent to this newly founded space was Inventio Arts – a project that brought together dance and the visual arts - now on an extended break.
Building on in-depth knowledge of the local art scene as well as the network and experience gained of Inventio Arts, Horizont Gallery aims to work together with emerging and mid-career Hungarian and international artists. The gallery’s main objective is to introduce, manage and establish progressive artists - primarily working with the mediums of painting, installation and new media – on the Hungarian and European art scenes. Various functions of the gallery reach beyond the borders of Hungary, such as representing artists on art fairs, exhibitions and other artistic initiatives.
Besides commercial functions, the Horizont Gallery operates as art-intermediary, organizing guided exhibition tours, thematic finissages, discussions and art education programmes. The mission of the gallery is to provide professional and articulate insight to the current tendencies of contemporary art, while contributing to the strengthening of an emerging local collector circle.
Alongside solo and group exhibitions, Horizont Gallery’s program includes thematically curated exhibitions which are reflecting on defining theoretical discourses of contemporary art and culture. Furthermore, the openness towards experimental artistic initiatives and formats makes the gallery an appropriate space for performative artistic practices.
