Ep. 4 / IVAN GALLERY
Ivan Gallery, one of Romania’s most internationally active galleries, opened in 2007 in Bucharest by curator and cultural promoter Marian Ivan with the aim at invigorating the Romanian commercial gallery scene, which back then was still in its infancy. The gallery includes, in its portfolio, highly influential artists like Geta Brătescu, Paul Neagu and Horia Bernea who beginning with the 1960s reinvented the local visual arts landscape. It is also home to important contemporary names who only now are starting to make a mark in the international artistic context.
Ivan Gallery has developed many fruitful collaborations with famous institutions of the art world like MoMA, the Venice Biennale, Istanbul Biennale, Tate London, Hammer Museum, Palais de Tokyo, New Museum, giving its projects and artists an exposure few other Romanian galleries have enjoyed.
