Ep. 3 / SENAT GALLERY (Unconventional Exhibition Space for Art and Technology)
The exploration of the Romanian visual arts geography through some of its most prominent galleries continues with SENAT Gallery, an artistic meeting point - or a "senate" - for the savvy public and the connected youth, a platform for interaction and engagement.
SENAT Gallery was born in 2019 on the site of a former foundry, an old industrial installation, heritage of the 1960’s socialist era, where the large-scale communist statues were being built. Preserving the industrial minimalist style, the space aims at creating an “interactional experience”, most suited to highlight the warm human emotions provoked by any type of artistic expression, and to become a platform, comparable in vision and portfolio, with the the best European galleries.
Since its opening in December 2019, SENAT Gallery has hosted, inter alia, The National Exhibition of Contemporary Art, the exhibition of the young artist Ilinca Gruia, „A Different Perspective”, „The Time is Now” - a manifesto event for the Bucharest of the future by ARCEN, the Diploma project by The Institute and, last but no least, the Romanian Design Week 2020.
Thanks to the creative revival of the foundry, the partnership with the Romanian Design Week came out naturally. This year’s objective of this festival has been to highlight the role of design in building a better future, having 'change' as its overarching theme.
