The home galleries projects in Iasi,
Cluj and Bucharest all have different backgrounds but what unites
them is the willingness to put on shows even at times when gallery
space in the respective cities is lacking. The purpose of these
galleries is to create an underground melting pot of good shows
spiced with dialogue and debate which would later on lead to a more
elaborate contemporary art scene.
Gallery 2020 was never meant
to happen it just did. In March 2003 a party was thrown in Grivita
39 to celebrate its new owners. Tom Wilson, Dj Vasile and Bathukan
span their records to a fresh crowd of artsy youngsters. It was
the first sign of what is was to come. In May 2003 Stefan Cosma
and Bathukan did the Romanian Product Design performance and in
November 2003 Vlad Nanca shows (where he) Lives and Works…
Ioana Nemes presented her Minigallery project on February 13th.
It was the first show to travel to Cluj as a small parcel and it
was later shown in Nita Mocanu’s homegallery. Stefan Cosma
returned to 2020 on March 16 and then Mona Vatamanu and Florin Tudor
showed The Palace / Persepolis video installation which will later
travel to Cluj. For more details about their shows check our ‘past’
section of the site.
