DESCRIPTION

“A painting is the art of making two lines… [which have] met on a canvas, before our eyes, in the reality of a world that has been transposed according to new conditions and possibilities,” said Tristan Tzara, the Romanian poet behind Dada. 

Historically thought to have a rather conceptual approach to the making of art, the following generations of Romanian artists have held an osmosis of perspectives in its making. Today, “the Cluj School,” have been the makers behind the surge in interest in Eastern European Art.

Richard Taittinger Gallery is honored to have Tate Modern’s leading advisor on Contemporary art of Romania, Maria Rus Bojan, curate the exhibition The Wanderers: Contemporary Painting from Cluj. This multigenerational show features a group of nine Transylvanian painters, all of which have worked to avoid redaction, in favor of nostalgia and irony as it relates to memory and a sense of place. The artists of this exhibition include; Marius Bercea, Alin Bozbiciu, Cornel Brudescu, Oana Fărcaș, Robert Fekete, Aurelian Marius Pirosca, Victor Răcătău, Ioan Sbârciu, and Sergio Toma.

The show tracks a shared dialogue between masters and students, the outcome of which helps define certain traditions. Traditions, that has within the last decade, projected the painters of Cluj-Naropa, into the limelight, astounding the international art world.
