Marshalling Yard
April 27–October 8, 2017
Ground floor

Continuing to look at its own collection as a random database of artifacts (approach inaugurated in the exhibition The Collection as an Archive, 2015), MNAC uses the landmark spaces from the ground floor of its venue (formerly known as “the Palace of Ceaușescu”) as a marshalling yard, where artworks are brought in the open for (visual) browsing, but also for maintenance, in view of a thorough re-organization of the art depots.

The Ephemerist. A Mihai Olos Retrospective
Curator: Călin Dan
Assistant curator: Sandra Demetrescu
April 27–October 8, 2017
1st floor

The Ephemerist is a comprehensive inquiry into the work of Mihai Olos (1940–2015), probably the most important artist in post-WW2 Romania, spirit kindred to Buckminster Fuller, Yona Friedman and other such visionaries. Active between Romania and Germany, Olos left an impressive body of work, exploring various media (painting, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, fashion, performance, poetry) and stylistic trends of late modernism, like conceptualism and minimalism. The second installment of the exhibition inaugurated in November 2016 expands the knowledge about the life and oeuvre of Olos through photographs, documents, objects and a large selection of drawings.

Error 404. Territories of Absence is a research exhibition that takes its title from the message received by internet users when trying to access a broken website or a corrupted page link. The “error” is seen here rather in a metaphorical sense, indicating the absence of a functional and communicational space, of information itself. The artworks included in this project deal with the idea of error, blur, glitch and absence equally in a concrete way (technical, formal, visual) and in a conceptual sense, pointing to the (im)possibility of representation, communication and bodily interaction at the border between real and virtual.

Klaus Obermaier's FACELESS multimedia performance will take place in the framework of the exhibition at 8pm.


Metarealia – At The Same Time
2META / Maria Manolescu, Romelo Pervolovici
Curators: Raluca-Elena Doroftei, Andreea Drăghicescu
April 27–October 8, 2017
3rd floor

Metarealia – At The Same Time exhibition reveals the most recent activity of 2META, Maria Manolescu and Romelo Pervolovici. Mostly known as media artists, they start using painting as a means of expression in 2010. Their works of art meet and overlap around the meta concept. The 2META painting seeks out breaches of reality, multiple realities, reality after reality—while the two artists work together on different canvases. At the same time a unique practice is drawn, with identifiable aesthetics, radically specific and unique. Metarealia defines a hybrid visual space where idea meets matter.

Apostrophe. Everything Started With The Keeper’s Hesitation
Irina Botea Bucan (Romania)

Exhibition conceived and curated by Anca Verona Mihuleț
Curatorial input: Diana Marincu
April 27–May 14, 2017

Irina Botea Bucan’s personal exhibition is the last chapter of the six-part curatorial project The White Dot and the Black Cube, that took place between November 2015 and May 2017. The show evolved in several stages, starting in 2014, and became a structure that revolves around three nuclei: firstly, a series of six films featuring secondary, suspended histories, for the most part unknown to the viewers; secondly, a selection of films focusing on behavioural gestures and fragments; thirdly a section that presents two personal stories marked by the antagonism between the private and the public in films presented at the Dalles Hall and thus visible from the street.
Chapter VI of The White Dot and The Black Cube, an exhibition project in six parts
​Winner of the MNAC Call for projects 2014
Architect: Attila Kim
MNAC coordinator: Mălina Ionescu
With the support of: add, aiurart, BenQ, Anca Poteraşu Gallery
