Slon Creative Residency: presentation and video screening @ Anca Poterașu Gallery
24 Jul 2019
Anca Poretașu Gallery
Anca Poterașu Gallery is a contemporary art gallery founded in May 2011 in a late 19th century old heritage building in Bucharest. Starting out from just 20 m2 of exhibition space in the unique turn-of-the-century-old setting, the Gallery has since expanded, becoming one of the best well-known art establishments in the city.
In 2019 it opens its new space on 26 Popa Soare, in the same charming historical neighborhood, close to the city centre of Bucharest.
The Gallery shows art in different media – painting, drawing, art-objects, installation, photography and moving image work. It focuses on presenting, promoting and furthering the career of Romanian artists – well-established names such as Matei Bejenaru, film-maker Irina Botea, Decebal Scriba or Robert Koteles and Zoltan Bela as well as younger emerging artists, such as Iulian Bisericaru, Larisa Crunțeanu, Daniel Djamo and Olivia Mihălțianu. The exhibition programme is centred on curatorial practice that encourages collaborations with art practitioners from across the country and from around the world. Organising between five and seven shows a year, the programme varies between solo and group exhibitions from Anca Poterasu Gallery’s roster as well as guest artists. The international residency programme – PLANTELOR 58 – has been initiated in 2014 by the Romanian Association of Contemporary Arts (ARAC) in collaboration with the gallery, by expanding the existing exhibition space with living and working quarters for the resident artists.
With a solid platform in Bucharest, Anca Poterasu Gallery aims to further develop the international visibility of its artists through cooperation with galleries and institutions outside Romania as well as by continuing its uninterrupted participation in selected international art fairs.
