Must you dance

Jul 9 — Oct 9, 2022 | M Woods Museum, Beijing, China

M WOODS is proud to announce the first solo museum exhibition world-wide by Hungarian artist Szabolcs Bozó (b.1992). The exhibition “Must You Dance” will present the artist’s most recent works, including paintings, works on paper and site-specific multi-panel painting installations and sculptures. 

In fact, his childhood memories and past experiences are key to Bozó’s art. His favourite Hungarian animation and children’s books were full of local folklore, mythology and dark humour, an aesthetic and cultural context that was distinctly different from their American/Western counterparts of that time. A break dancer in his teens, his innate understanding of the dynamic movement of the body in space and a sense of wild physical energy is explicitly apparent in the gestural and rhythmic brushstrokes in his canvases.
