About The Event
The string of events devoted to some of Romania’s most original visual artists continues with a project by Ioana Stanca, which opens in the Brâncuși Gallery at the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York on March 25. Entitled ”I suddenly unfurled many eyes”, the exhibition, curated by Catinca Tăbăcaru, highlights the artist’s ingenious method and her unlikely choice of materials, which open up unexpected possibilities of interaction between the human body and the artifacts. Apart from a superb technical ability, the works, made primarily of textiles, illustrate the constant pursuit of a personal, intimate geography in constant transformation as a metaphor of the feminine self.
Ioana Stanca (b. 1987, Romania) studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome, Italy and at the National University of Arts in Bucharest. Ioana was a guest artist at AIR Futura, Karlin Studios in Prague (2018) and at the Staycation Symposium Bucharest organized by Catinca Tăbăcaru Gallery, Sandwich Gallery and CTG Collective (2020). She is the beneficiary of the Brătianu Scholarship offered by the Romanian Ministry of Culture (2020).
The exhibition opens at RCI's Brâncuși Gallery on Friday, March 25, 2022, 7-9 pm. Artist Talk as part of the opening.
