Ioana Nemeş (1979-2011) was one of the most acknowledged and exhibited Romanian artists of her generation. Her artistic practice was fuelled by the necessity to visualize and communicate as clearly as possible the hidden mechanism behind linguistic, visual, and psychological systems that define us.
Ioana participated in the Istanbul Biennial (2009), U-Turn Copenhagen (2008), Prague Biennial (2007) and Bucharest Biennale 2 (2006). Her works have been presented in Art in General, NY (2011), Secession, Vienna (2010), Smart Project Space, Amsterdam (2009), Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel (2006), and, more recently, in exhibitions like 'Monthly Evaluation’, Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2014), 'Contretemps' CaixaForum, Barcelona (2014), 'Ritual without Myth', Royal College of Art, London (2012), 'Desire is War', The Contemporary Art Gallery of Brukenthal Museum, Sibiu (2011), 'Communism Never Happened', Charim Gallery, Vienna (2011), as well as in publications like 100 New Artists (publisher Laurence King) and 'Romanian Cultural Resolution' (publisher Hatje Cantz). She was a resident at Art in General NY (2011), IASPIS Stockholm (2010), The Romanian Cultural Institute in London (2007) and Kulturkontakt Vienna (2004), and she worked as member in different collectives in art, fashion and interior design contexts: Kilobase Bucharest (2011), Apparatus 22 (2011), Rozalb de Mura (2004-2010) and Liste Noire (2004-2011).
