Metamorphosis - Changes at Várfok Gallery

Since its debut twenty years ago Várfok Gallery went through a series of metamorphoses. We would like now to present through a selection of photos the changes concerning the former XO Hall. The story begins in 1997, when a 38 m2 municipal flat situated near Várfok Hall at Várfok St 11 was bought and reconstructed to show various contemporary art exhibitions under the name of XO Gallery. Some years later, in 2002 it has endured another reconstruction, it was renamed XO Hall (so for a long time Várfok Gallery organised its exhibitions among other halls in its Várfok and XO Halls). This was followed by „calm and peaceful” years until 2010, when Várfok Gallery celebrating its 20th birthday started recovery works bigger than ever, where „not one stone was left standing”. Breaking through the walls of the former XO Hall the result of the side-and backward expansion was a renewed exhibition hall that runs along the whole facade of the building, turns backward in an – L - form towards Batthyány St and ends in a spacious storage.
So from 2011 Várfok Gallery welcomes contemporary art lovers in a nearly 300 m2 area with an exhibition hall completed by moving walls and other „delicacies” all constructed in accordance to high international standards.
