The NOIMA group, composed by Andrei Rosetti, Ciprian Bodea, Cosmin Frunteș, Dan Gherman, Sorin Scurtulescu painters announces, during the 31 th of January to 4 th of February 2015, the implementation of the first stage of an European itinerant advent which will have as a start point Vienna, the capital city of Austria.
Through this approach, NOIMA will enhance a further collaboration with partners from outside Romania- art galleries and artistic communities from European capitals interested in Romanian contemporary art. First, Vienna becomes framework of docummentation but also the playground for ”running” of a new NOIMA project.
After a series of group exhibitions organized in the 12 years since its establishment in cities like Bucharest, Timisoara, Cluj, Brasov, Timisoara, Romania Deva, where audiences had the opportunity to become acquainted with the works and artists formed during the Faculty of Arts and Design from Timișoara and Bucharest National University of Arts, and NOIMA promotes its most recent project, ”360º”, in Europe and inside Romania.
”A game with the perceived space”. It will be the purpose of several urban painting sessions. This game proposes a discussion about identity. About the person and the group. The group viewed as organical structure, as a body that processes simultaneously four different perspectives (identities) summed, overlapped, side by side…after various game rules agreed by all of us in dialogue with the surrounding space. We propose, for instance, a work session back to back, our view angles totaling 360 degrees… In such a key we will approach the lanscapes of the streets. The resulted works will be included in a NOIMA future exhibition.”
At Vienna NOIMA group will organize both painting sessions and dialogue about current art. Therefore NOIMA launches the invitation to meet ”at work” a group of artists from Timișoara and Brașov. The group will liaise with those interested to take the pulse of this new approach through its facebook page and the news section of the website noima.ro.
