About The Event

As part of the in-person conclusion of the transatlantic project UN/MUTE, Romanian Cultural Institute is pleased to host a talk featuring Team Branch, the artistic duo formed by Romanian Alex Mirutziu and American Sydney Shavers, together with curator Daina Mattis about the power of creativity to transcend the limitations and challenges imposed by the pandemic. 

UN/MUTE is a three-stage project set up by EUNIC New York (the association of the cultural institutes from several European Union countries) in partnership with Undercurrent New York in 2020, at the height of the medical crisis, to provide European and New York-based artists an opportunity to communicate and work together despite all adversities. The result of many months of remote collaboration, unfolding mainly on-line, is a group exhibition opened at the Austrian Cultural Forum in New York and Undercurrent in September, which reunites 28 artists from 10 countries and documents this unusual experience and its artistic outcomes.

The event will take place on September 24 at 6:30 pm at the Romanian Cultural Institute, 200 East 38th Street, New York.

Please RSVP here.
