Museographers and restorers of the Museum of Bucharest invite the public to know their artistic universe

Bucharest Museum invites you to visit, starting with February 24, 2021, the exhibition “Artists at the Museum” (Second Edition), which will open at Museum of Folk Art Dr. Nicolae Minovici.

The mission of museographers and restorers is to protect and enhance heritage objects. But in parallel with this responsibility, some of them build their own artistic universe. Hosted by the Conference Hall of the Dr. Nicolae Minovici Museum (1 Dr. Nicolae Minovici Street), the exhibition entitled “Artists at the Museum” continues the initiative initiated by the Museum of Bucharest in 2016 and offers the public interested in contemporary art the opportunity to discovers from another perspective the activity of such specialists. This new group exhibition is organized with the participation of artists Dinu Mihai Fălcoianu, Aida Simona Grigore, Rodica Ion, Nazen Ștefania Peligrad, Cristina Vasiliu, Marilena Murariu and Vasile Dobre.

Paintings and tapestries that address current issues are exposed to the public – from faces that look at us candidly to mysterious characters, playful beings, dizzying compositions, secret geometries, to satirical approaches and authorial representations.

Dinu Mihai Fălcoianu exhibited in the country and abroad. We mention the personal exhibition organized in 2019 at the Casa Storck Foundation in Bucharest. About Dinu Mihai Fălcoianu, Raluca Olga Dumitru underlined: “Although they contain various hypostases, concentrated around the geometric shape of the square, Fălcoianu’s works release the same type of state, of a tactile universe, balanced and serene, achieved by conceptualizing the image”.

Aida Simona Grigore participated in group exhibitions, among the most recent being, in 2020, the exhibition “Kingdom of Heaven”, organized at the National Village Museum “Dimitrie Gusti” by the Branch Association of Religious Fine Arts and Restoration of UAP in Romania and in 2019 , Annual of Religious Art and Restoration – Flower Sunday, at the National Museum of the Village “Dimitrie Gusti”. Aida Simona Grigore is at the first participation in the exhibition “Artists at the Museum”.

Rodica Ion presented his works in personal and group exhibitions, in the country and abroad. About the monumental paintings she makes, Mariana Dan remarks: “Rodica Ion’s artistic process presupposes a perfect concordance between artistic tension and suggestion, between what she wants to say and what she says, so that every brush she puts on not only controls, but and it represents the very precise plastic expression of the given situation, of the intention, of the state ”.

Nazen Stefania Peligrad participated in group exhibitions and organized personal exhibitions, including “Nostalgia”, opened at the Art Museum “Vasile Grigore” – painter and collector in 2018. Radu Negrescu-Suțu he wrote about her works: “Regardless of the theme, be it portraits, self-portraits, children, eyes, trees, flowers or stained glass, Nazen Peligrad manages to convey, with the courage of his talent, the Emotion, the chromatic or the mystery”.

Cristina Vasiliu collaborates for the first time in the exhibition project “Artists at the Museum”. She confesses: “I think that an era is reflected in art, and the artist is committed to the spirit of his era. (…) In the series Paradox, the paintings are metaphors of a magical realism, through which I define myself as an artist and an individual ”.

Marilena Murariu presents three of the works that were part of the pamphlet exhibition About Elena in general (2011). Built around Elena Ceaușescu, the paintings in this series marked a new stage in the artist’s destiny, of assumed, ironic and satirical activism. Marilena Murariu is at her first participation in the exhibition “Artists at the Museum”.

Vasile Dobre he has presented his creations in personal, group and salon exhibitions since 1981. Corneliu Ostahie he confessed: “Its tapestries have a well-tempered force, deduced from their primary purpose: to humanize and heat interior spaces, whether it is a domestic microuniverse or an environment with public values ​​”.

The Museum of Bucharest invites lovers of contemporary art to discover the exhibition “Artists at the Museum” between February 24 and May 30, 2021.
