KINGS AND SAINTS - THE ERA OF THE ÁRPÁD DYNASTY
This exhibition is the most significant event related to the 2022 Aranybulla commemorative year within the framework of the Árpád House Program in Hungary, perhaps the largest exhibition if the Árpád Era of all time. Nearly 1000 objects from more than 10 countries were presented here over the three months. The home of the exhibition is one of Székesfehérvár's jewels, the listed bulding of the old Cistercian Monastery - which operates as a museum today - with its 17 rooms and its historical atmosphere.
As an introduction you can enter the old convent from the newly built part, where our wask was to guide and introduce the visitors to the exhibition. The listed monastery was an exciting design task both in term of the floor plans and due to its protection restrictions. In addition, the art protection requirements of the incoming objects were constraints, among which we had to balance and find a well-thought-out, uniform image of the exhibition.
