The Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art in my beloved town of Budapest who was unhelpful enough to provide me with zero press material, is apparently hosting a Glenn Brown exhibition.

It opened yesterday and Glenn's works will be on show until April 11, 2010.

Only three works are featured in the exhibition preview, but I assume/hope it's going to be a bit more epic than that. Sew sue me if not.

Oh, and buy his Tate Liverpool exhibition catalogue. It's worth every forint.

Bonus question for fellow art history nerds: Which 17th century religious artwork (title and artist, per favore) is Spearmint Rhino based on? First correct commentator(ess) wins.. uhmm... some random thing from my Drawer ov Dooooom. Yay!

On show: February 6 - April 11, 2010

Address: Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art, Palace of Arts, Komor Marcell u. 1, Budapest, H-1095, HUNGARY, tel: +36 1 555 3444 | Map

Gallery hours: Tue - Sun: 10 AM - 8 PM

Admission: Free last Sunday of every month

Literature: Glenn Brown Catalogue by Francesco Bonami and Laurence Sillars (newer editions have a much nicer cover)

... and in completely unrelated news, here's a rare appearance of Blondie as Blackie in a Hans-Ruedi Gigeresque environment:

Just a quick reminder that all you London folks should really make sure to head over to Gagosian’s Britannia Street gallery to see some very fine examples of Glenn’s work.


Because I say so.
