Selections from The Last Vispo Anthology on exhibit in Budapest, Hungary

Announcement (below) from Crg Hill's poetry scorecard. So while my colleagues from 'work-work' are up the road getting their VAT and sales tax kicks at the Budapest Intercontinental, my holding poem will be clutching at shadows in the Ráday Könyvesház. Thank you Crag and Nico!

Today Marton Koppany in Budapest put up 52 A/4 prints which will be on view during the next week. The opening ceremony is due on Monday at 6 pm. It also will be the opening event for an international poetry festival. More events (performances, poetry readings) will be organized in the same room with participants from different countries (mostly from Central and Eastern Europe). The exhibition hall is situated in downtown Budapest, and part of a cultural center. For those who read Hungarian, here is the link to the center (called "Ráday Könyvesház"), and to the program of the festival.
Several internet portals and the best (and only) literary weekly have already announced the show, which might mean a two digit number crowd for the opening if the weather is nice. :-) Beside opening the show Marton will give a digital presentation as well.
Pictures will be taken on the opening event on Monday. Photos from this and other shows will be posted on the Last Vispo facebook page and a website as soon as that is constructed.
