An exhibition featuring works by Mária Berhidi, Róza El-Hassan, Ágnes Eperjesi, Ilona Keserü Ilona, Hilda Kozári, Ilona Lovas, Ilona Németh, Ágnes Eszter Szabó, Zsuzsa Szenes and Mónika Sziládi. Representing emerging, mid-career as well as established artists from Hungary and Slovakia, the show comprises photographs, digital prints, objects, as well as sound installations and videos offering a rare overview of the artistic production of Central European women artists from the 1960s to today.

Domestic Goods is a group exhibition concerned with domestic economies in both senses of the term: it evokes household activities and spaces traditionally assigned or understood as feminine, while also bringing into play the notion of home as a national, geographic and cultural entity. Taking an ironic look at the gendered understanding of domestic production, the works on view investigate the manifestations of locality, as well as the exchange and the global circulation of domestic products in transnational economy.

The exhibition is curated by Ágnes Berecz. In conjunction with the exhibition CEC Artslink will present “What Do Hungarian Women Artists Do?”, a lecture by Ágnes Berecz, on Wednesday, June 28, 6pm at 435 Hudson Street, 8th Floor.

This is a collaborative exhibition by AIR Gallery, Alma on Dobbin and 2B Gallery
