MUST-SEE CONTEMPORARY ART EXHIBITIONS IN BUCHAREST THIS SPRING
As the spring has just kicked off, the art world in Bucharest is starting to fuss over the future contemporary art exhibitions. Although the calendar of these art events is ongoing and far from being complete at the moment, we are yearning for a glimpse of what will be relevant in terms of contemporary art for the next season. Hence, here’s our selection of the already announced art events that you can see in Bucharest this spring.
WTFWJD – Pandele Pandele @ Mobius Gallery
The solo show of Pandele Pandele – What The Fuck Would Jesus Do – comprises a series of the most recent works of the artist that stand as an experimental lyricism of our society and the constant emergence of stereotypes. You can face this thought-provoking contemporary art exhibition by visiting it at Mobius Gallery until March 21st.
#Maitec – Wood Gold Light @ The National Art Museum of Romania
Being an inedit dialogue of three different visual languages – painting, sculpture, photography – the #Maitec – Wood Gold Light exhibition reunites the artistic destinies of two generations in Maitec family. You can visit this exhaustive exhibition dedicated to the contribution of Ovidiu and Sultana Maitec in the painting and sculpture art field after 1950, now in a remarkable contemporary perspective with Stéphane and Dana Maitec. You can still visit the #Maitec exhibition until 29th of March at The National Art Museum of Romania and encounter this unprecedent artistic approach.
The decorator always gets paid least @ Ivan Gallery
Ross Taylor’s second solo show is currently displayed at Ivan Gallery until the end of March. The decorator always gets paid least depicts almost a sort of incursion into the artist’s creative fantasy and narrates a repression over the paintings which went through different processes as drawing, painting, scratching, piercing and cutting the surface.
Flow State. Betuker / Gaspar @ Sector 1 Gallery
This first art event of the year at Sector 1 Gallery is showing off a genuine duo exhibition of the painter Istvan Betuker and performance artist and sculptor, Szilard Gaspar. Althought their artistic approaches are clearly divergent, the epicentre of this dialogue resides in a dinamic reinterpretation of the simplicity. For an exceptional experience we recommend you to hurry up as the exhibition is open just until the 7th of March.
The Near and the Elsewhere @ Suprainfinit Gallery
This solo show of Kristin Wenzel is engaging the public into an act of memories and social environment. The space is becoming a vast swimming pool that brings together individuals and acts as a social space. You have plenty of time to visit this contemporary art exhibition as it just started and will be on display until 10th April.
Methods of Building @ National Museum of Contemporary Art
This art event at MNAC is exhibiting until 29 March the development of the artistic work of Liliana Mercioiu Popa, a Romanian visual artist based in Timișoara. Compiling various artistic tehniques seamlessly employed by the artist such as readymade, video, photography or installation, Methods of Building narrates a solid perspective on how the artist relates to her everyday medium and transforms her perception of the world into art. Morover, Methods of Building is exploring the theme of construction as a both positive and distructive human activity.
GREGOR SCHNEIDER. Dead rooms @ MARe
We are already familiar with the unconventional exhibitions that MARe (Museum of Recent Art) had set up and this temporary art display of the german artist Gregor Schneider is no less. The set up is an installation art reminiscing a „dead room” that is conceptual reinterpreting the limits and meaning of the interior space. You still have plenty of time to visit this one as the exhibition will be open to public until the 4th of May 2020.
Safety Room @ creart Gallery
As created by the visual artist, Cătălin Burcea, the concept of „Safety Room” stands as a shalter which can hide the individual from the anguish and hassle of the nowadays society. The solution is just temporary and can have side effects on the mental wealth of the human being such as alienation or sagregation. How can we face and fight this uncertainty? Burcea’s art exhibition at creat Gallery is offering some potential solutions until April 5th.
Insatiable Machines @ Halucinarium
Fresh out of the gallery’s archives, starting with yesterday until 13th April, you can visit this cyber-fictitious art exhibition of the Romanian experimental artist Saint Machine. The Insatiable Machines is displaying a narration of how humans as natural living entities interact and merge with machines. This solo show of Saint Machine represents an ambitious cumul of effort and expertise of programmers, physicists, engineers, sound artists and 3D animators. Get prepped for this transcendental exhibitional experience!
