Info

Romanian artists who as teenagers saw their country emerge from communism are featured in a new exhibition at the Ujazdowski Castle Center for Contemporary Art in Warsaw.

A Few Grams of Red, Yellow, Blue. New Romanian Art is the largest exhibition of new Romanian art in Poland to date. The title was inspired by a video installation by Catalin Burcea in which the artist is shown spraying red, yellow and blue paint, the colors of the Romanian flag, into the air. According to Burcea, the graffiti suspended in the air for a fleeting moment is a metaphor of patriotism in present-day Romania.

The exhibition features more than 20 young artists who, over the last decade or so, have made their mark on the art scene in their home country as well as internationally. Now aged 30-something, the artists were brought up during communism. They witnessed the system disintegrating and collapsing and then saw consumerism invading their country.

In their work, the artists reflect on contemporary times through their shared experience of present-day Romania, a country that has risen from the ruins of the old system while facing a tidal wave of Western culture. This central theme is manifested on different levels of critical discourse, such as the artists’ relationship with the past and their attitude to artistic traditions and current affairs.

Until June 8
