Curatorial


December 2017 - Do the Mountains Know? / Ivan Gallery, Bucharest. A retrospective exhibition dedicated to Ion Râmnic and István Mihály. The two artists from Târgu Mures belong to the generation of the 1970s. They were shaped by the scene brought together by the MAMÜ group, without being actually part of the group itself. Their artistic endeavour focuses on issues related to identity, citizenship and sexual freedom.


September 2019 - Mattis Teutsch. Avant-garde and constructive realism / Rezidenta BRD Scena9, Bucharest. The project was based on the interdisciplinary research carried out by artist Szilárd Miklós about Hans Mattis Teutsch. The exhibition followed the perception of the postwar work of the artist in museum and patrimonial practices in Romania and Hungary from the 1960s to the present, and as such it became an alternative to the absence of art historical and institutional museum research.
