Curated by Judit Angel
This exhibition features a collection of more than 30 artists and 17 art groups that have been influential in the development of a new figurative style of contemporary art that developed in Cluj, Romania in the mid 2000′s. The show features a wide range of mediums; paintings, graphics, objects, photos, videos and installations as well as site specific works. The exhibiting artists react with sensitivity to the challenges of the local social and cultural milieu. The displayed works relate to the mechanisms of history and memory, the ambiguities of this transition period, and the changes in ideology in relation to art history and painting traditions.
