I warmly welcome you in the magical world of contemporary art. Thank you for contributing to the success of Art Market Budapest with your kind attention. Being a collector regularly attending art fairs myself, I know how important it is what kind of experiences, memories and relationships one gains during the hours or days spent away from home. Therefore, when our team was shaping the programs now presented to you, I thought about what would appeal to me personally… I sincerely hope that we share the same taste in many instances. We aim to provide you with the most comfortable circumstances while scouting, exploring, selecting and purchasing the artworks of your choice, as well as in meeting with like-minded strangers and longtime acquaintances.

Our special art programs – including a wide range of events from a behind-the-scenes museum tour to personal meetings with international stars – offer similarly memorable experiences as the social gatherings to which the unique infrastructure of Budapest and my colleagues’ equally unique hospitality provide the backdrop. I would like to personally thank you once again for your interest and for your visit at Art Market Budapest. I wish you pleasant purchases, meaningful entertainment and a blissfully relaxing experience.

Founding Director of Art Market Budapest

Let me welcome you on behalf of all MKB Private Banking employees to Art Market Budapest. We are very proud of being a partner, for the third time since 2020, of what is the most important contemporary art fair in the East-Central European region. The relationship between art and economic actors dates back to centuries and has appeared in a variety of forms, including the institution of patronage. Although the sponsorship of art and the
livelihoods of artists is an extremely important undertaking, I am deeply convinced that a modern banking service provider should regard cooperation not primarily from a material aspect but from the perspective of value community. MKB Private Banking is committed to credibly representing its social responsibility even beyond its day-to-day operation. Art Market Budapest naturally mingles with our world-view through its light, entertaining, and at the same time thought-provoking, messages to all visitors including those arriving with their families, ensuring that we will continue to cooperate for a long time to come. Thank you for the honour of your participation in the programs at Art Market Budapest where we truly hope you will have long lasting experiences.
