About The Event
Home to game-changing aesthetic movements like The Sigma Group and to seminal artistic figures like the Romanian-British artist Paul Neagu, multicultural and multiethnic Timișoara has been, for decades, the epicenter of visual arts creativity in Romania. As this westernmost Romanian city bears the title of Europe’s cultural capital in 2023, we follow up on our series of events dedicated to the main "artistic schools" in Romania with LAYERS OF REALITY, an exhibition illustrating the contemporary vibrancy and relevance of a major artistic tradition set up by a creative team associated with the West University of Timișoara’s Faculty of Arts and Design.
Looking at how technological imagery interferes with artistic production to develop new ways of addressing a multi-layered reality that calls for a gradual discovery, the exhibition, which opens at our Brâncuşi Gallery between September 8 - 28, 2023, is a joint project, presented together with the School of Visual Arts in New York. Curated by Maria Orosan-Telea, Lotte Marie Allen, and LJ McNerney, the exhibition features Romanian artists Aura Bălănescu, Dorian Bolca, Cosmin Haiaș, and Andreea Medar, Faculty of Arts and Design UVT alumni, and local artists Hershel Carbajal, Jintong Yang, and Kristie Kish, master students at the Computer Arts Department at SVA.
The opening of the exhibition is on September 8, with keynote remarks by Professor Marilen Pirtea, the Rector of the West University of Timișoara (UVT), and Professor Camil Mihăescu, the Dean of UVT’s Faculty of Arts and Design.
