”​Puls 21”, 2 November 2023- 30 April 2024, National Museum of Contemporary Art, Bucharest


My work `Girl with Tentacles/Flag I after Hokusai" which had been acquired by the National Museum of Contemporary Art in 2020 has been included in a recent exhibition there.


Through the repeated acts of generosity by the Ministry of Culture, in 2020 and 2022 a total of 385 artworks (359 acquired, 26 donated) entered the MNAC Bucharest collection. PULS 21 brings together a selection of works from both sessions and obviously benefits from the gains and conclusions of both episodes. PULS 21 no longer has the dramatic nature of the 2020 exhibition of the first session of acquisitions (...) but introduces us to other challenges.

The spatial layout of the 2020 exhibition underlined the volatile nature of the relationship between the Museum and local artistic production, emphasising ephemerality, improvisation, and chance. Three years later, in the main space of MNAC, the exhibition showcasing highlights from from the combined recent acquisitions (2020 and 2022) reflects the fact that we (artists, professionals, audiences) participate in the process of building the collection of an institution whose role is (among others) to elaborate the canon of artistic production pertaining to those from/active in post-war Romania.

The exhibition can be visited on the first floor of the museum.
