Knoll Galéria Budapest was the first private gallery to open in Hungary when it launched in September 1989. It was the first of its kind in the whole Eastern Block, even before the fall of the Wall.
Alongside its Viennese counterpart, the gallery has a history of specialising in Central and Eastern European art. It has played a crucial role in the career development of the region’s artists and their presence on the international scene, aided by participation in art tours, fairs, conferences and symposiums across the world.
Today Knoll Galéria Budapest represents an eclectic mix of artists, from renowned British sculptor Tony Cragg to experimental Hungarian photographer Luca Gőbölyös. Furthermore, it is not averse to political works, which are prevalent among the gallery’s Russian artists, such as Natalia Nikitin and groups AES+F and Blue Noses.
