The main work of the Munkácsy Award-winning visual artist István B. Gellér was the Growing City, which he himself “founded”. In this series, to which he added continuously from 1978 until the end of his life, Gellér diligently “discovered” an ancient civilisation whose inhabitants considered not facts, but the emotions and meaning surrounding them, to be the basis, or starting point, for their existence and interests.

On this occasion the exhibition’s curator, Sándor Kardos, has selected statues, boxed works and pictures from the artist’s estate. The 1996 film Growing City, directed by Kardos and starring István B. Gellér himself, will also be viewable at the exhibition.
