“The thirteen people from the teaching staff (outdated phrase), in other words professors, lecturers, teaching assistants from U.N.Arte (Bucharest National University of Arts), tenure or associate professors, will join gallery Atelier 030202 – Contemporary Art Space for a unique challenge: 13 conceptual displays, 13 statements, 13 narrative acts.
Not needing any textual scaffolding, but still meditating on the surrounding world, Ion Anghel, Cezar Atodiresei, Cătălin Bălescu, Traian Boldea, Marcel Bunea, Petru Lucaci, George Mircea, George Moscal, Horea Paștina, Beniamin Popescu, Alexandru Rădvan, Mihai Sârbulescu, Andrei Tudoran, come prepared with art objects and installations, to surprise us, and especially those who have been knowing them as painters, they gather in an artistic act, a not very common gesture, hardly seen… but which should be a natural one. We are, therefore, devoid of academic rigidity, inflexibility and do not seek comfort in our own obsessions.” Marcel Bunea
