What can you enjoy during the Art Safari in Bucharest this year?
During the Art Safari Bucharest 2021, you will have the opportunity to admire four different collections:
In the Footsteps of Claude Monet
Samuel Mützner’s exposition, In the Footsteps of Claude Monet, analyzes the impressionist and neo-impressionist impact of Mützner and the years spent with Claude Monet on the artistic directions in Romania and of an epoch in an explosive process of renewal. The exhibition features the canvases of Mützner’s great travels around the world: Japan, Venezuela, the United States.
Women Artists in Romania
The exhibition Seduction and Triumph in Art, Women Artists in Romania, is made in partnership with the Museum of Bucharest and presents an important series of works by many women artists, artists who studied in Munich and Paris, then exhibited in Romania but also in France, Italy, Spain or Germany, being involved in modern and avant-garde artistic movements.
Constantin Piliuță’s exhibition, Zenith Color, is an illustration of that “spiritus loci” that paradoxically balances between frequenting chance and the serenity of contemplating one’s own inaction or beauty in its vegetal expression. The artist homologates in Romanian painting the genre scene as an expression of everyday ridicule and the paintings with floral subject as a place of manifestation of the aesthetics of simplicity and harmony of the palette.
Trends in Romanian Contemporary Art
Superheroes/Antiheroes exhibition, Trends in Romanian Contemporary Art, explores the role of creative communities in Romania and the various current ways of visual expression, from drawing to fabric, installation, or ceramics. Romanian super contemporary art of this decade is not easily restricted to a single exhibition. And despite the fact that it may seem challenging in content or disconcerting in aesthetics, it is actually the expression of a time when the world is changing with dizzying speed. The symbolic and metaphorical associations between art and society are easy to notice in the works on display. The superhero serves as the ultimate metaphor for the artist and his ability to explore, problematize and critique contemporary society.
Also, once you arrive in Bucharest, don’t forget to enjoy Romanian traditional dishes.
