Aurora Király’s installation "50’s or Soft Despair" has recently been presented at New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) x Foreland Art Fair 2021 with the support of the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York. Represented by Anca Poterasu Gallery, Aurora Király (b. 1970), who is teaching at the Department of Photography and Dynamic Image of the National University of the Arts in Bucharest and holds a doctoral degree in Photography, has made herself known in the Romanian artistic milieu in two different roles: as a prominent artist and leader of the her generation and as an initiator of cultural and educational projects.
