About The Event
The newest exhibition hosted by our Brâncuși Gallery builds upon a transatlantic artistic dialog between Romanian Dan Voinea and American Paul Joseph Vogeler, whose bodies of work, characterized by dynamic practices exploring the human perspective from various angles, reveal the inherently subjective and situational nature of the observed reality. The exhibition, entitled "Exposed", investigates the idea of exposure as a moment of crisis, examining one’s vulnerability in front of a viewer, whether an individual or a group.
In a world of pervasive scrutiny and constant survey, defending privacy becomes an act of courage. The contemporary individual tries to escape total and permanent exposure and defend their intimacy against intrusion and "surveillance." Nevertheless, privacy is constantly invaded by public opinion and the media, which brutally penetrate the obscurity of one’s life. On the other hand, the tensioned relation between the collective/individual viewer and the subject of their scrutiny is in itself a source of contemplation (and meditation) as evidenced by the works of Dan Voinea and Paul Vogeler, artists who make this theme central to their practice.
The exhibition is made in collaboration with Slag Gallery.
The exhibition "EXPOSED” – An Artistic Dialog of Dan Voinea & Paul Joseph Vogeler will be on view at RCI New York's Brâncuşi Gallery between May 4 – August 31, 2023.
A special event, "Meet the Artist: Paul Joseph Vogeler," is scheduled on Thursday, June 8, 7 - 9 pm, “Brâncuşi” Gallery, Romanian Cultural Institute in New York.
Please be advised that the access at RCI New York is not wheelchair-accessible.
