Sunflower, by Ștefan Bertalan

Born in 1930 in Romania, Ștefan Bertalan is interested in the growth of plants, the evolution of which he follows through drawing, journalling and photography. He is exhibiting his photograms of this artistic transformation. Sunflower is part of the exhibition "La Brique, The Brick, Cărămida" devoted to contemporary Romanian art at the Kunsthalle in Mulhouse. Presented from 14th February to 28th April 2019, the exhibition reveals an active Romanian artistic scene, from the dawn of the 20th century to the present day. The works come from the collection of Ovidiu Șandor, a collector and patron from Timisoara, a twin town of Mulhouse.

Artists Talk, by Gianina Cărbunariu

An ironic reflection on the artist’s investment in today’s world, Artists Talk by Gianina Cărbunariu puts big thoughts and little statements into perspective. The play is being performed at the Théâtre des Célestins in Lyon, from 5th to 7th April 2019, alongside OMG by Ioana Păun. Gianina Cărbunariu and Ioana Păun are two iconic figures of the new contemporary Romanian stage, whose dynamic, sharp writing holds up a mirror to their era.

If A Tree Were to Fall, by Adrian Ganea and Kinga Ôtvös

In If A Tree Were to Fall, two bodies interrogate their ability to articulate emotions independently. What happens when motion capture is rendered precisely in a foreign body? If the technology evolves beyond a simple tool which obeys our commands, can it give rise to new sensations? The performance is presented at the Mirage Festival, an overview of digital cultures taking place from 3rd to 7th April 2019 in Lyon, as part of the “Creative Romania” programme.

“Matisse-Pallady and The Romanian Blouse: Two Artists Under Censorship"

Long-standing friends – both of whom were trained in the workshop of Gustave Moreau – Matisse and Pallady communicated only in letters from 1940 onwards, when Pallady returned home for an exhibition in Romania and never managed to leave the country again. “A Romanian Season at the Centre Pompidou" presents works produced during this period by the two friends, as well as their letters and photographs revealing Matisse's approach. From 28th November 2018 to 20th May 2019 at Centre Pompidou.
