HORSES IN CONTEMPORARY DRAWING

DATES
1-14 August 2019


PROGRAM an intensive residency designed for artists interested in combining equine studies and visual arts.
We were looking for artists interested in horse culture, as well as riders interested in art. The work will include daily
practice and lessons of horsemanship, horsearchery, anatomically correct riding. Discussions and lectures will be
held with the main focus on fine art research and a focus on drawing. The program is running since 5 years in a
series for years to come and is centered around different research themes. This summer we will focus on drawing.
We interpret contemporary drawing widely and we think of the process conceptually. Guest lecturers will be
invited, excursions will be organised, works made can be exhibited. A fully equiped printmaking studio is available.

AIM to deliver our interest into the field of international artistic research with opening up connections between
equine culture and art. We would like to rethink art today in relation to horsemanship and riding. We are open for
artistic practices coming from both, western and eastern traditions.

PROGRAM LEADERS Dr. Veszely Beáta is an artist and researcher focusing on the horse portrait in contemporary art
and Szmrecsányi Márton is a horse trainer and horsearcher. Both are dedicated to research the knowledge of old
riding masters, the history of equine imagery in art old and new and to develop their riding and horsearchery next
to teaching.

ACCOMMODATION in rural life settings is offered in traditional Hungarian style yurts.

PARTICIPANTST the application deadline was 15. February 2019. We had a great number of applications internationally and we selected 10 artists to participate in the program.
