The Evolution of Romanian Art: from Isolation to Global Reach
Timisoara, 3 October 2015 – The first edition of Art Encounters opens to the public on 3 October 2015. A platform for a multifaceted dialogue, the event integrates Romanian contemporary art into the international context. It builds a dialogue between artists, who were active during the communist area at home in isolation (Sigma, Geta Brătescu, Ion Grigorescu) or abroad in exile (Paul Neagu, Andre Cadere, Mihai Olos). It reaches to the 1990s transition period (Dan Perjovschi, Sub:real) and the 2000s democracy (Ioana Nemeș, Ciprian Mureșan, Mircea Cantor).
In October 2015, Timișoara, the city in western Romania in the heart of the historic Banat region, will host the first Timisoara Art Encounters. Stretching over the historical center of the city, Timisoara Art Encounters offers multilayered displays at diverse sites that invite visitors to share in the sensual and intellectual experience of contemporary art. It appeals to people of all ages, to visitors both local and international.
