Deimantas Narkevičius: Cupboard and a Song
Curator: Călin Dan
28 November 2014–29 March 2015
ground floor

Deimantas Narkevičius pulls out the images stored in our heads through the subtle processes of (collective) memory, and translates them into phantoms of a resilient past that haunts mercilessly but gently the present. Working mostly with cinematic means (cinema—the medium of phantoms revival par excellence), the artist remains a believer in the virtues of space as a container of public tensions, and a promoter of sculpture as a healer of historical traumas.
–Călin Dan

Bucharest Artistic Education and Romanian Art after 1950
Exhibition on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the National University of Arts (UNArte) 
Curator: Adrian Guță
28 November 2014–14 June 2015
1st floor

An overview of the MNAC collection, with works from the collections of UNArte, the Museum of the Municipality of Bucharest, and other local collections.

“The exhibition brings together works from artists, professors and graduates—some of them later going on to being professors themselves—belonging to different generations of what we nowadays call the National University of Arts in Bucharest; six decades of artistic achievement, from the ’50s to present, and many artistic statements. The visitor will encounter well-known works, while also (re)discovering rarely exhibited ones.”
–Adrian Guță

Project realized in partnership with the National University of Arts (UNArte), Bucharest.

Dispositions in Time and Space
Exhibition generated by the Mobile Biennale 1
Curator: Adrian Bojenoiu
28 November 2014–29 March 2015
2nd floor

Artists: Mihai Barabancea (Romania), Andreea Buțincu (Romania), Anetta Mona Chișa (Czech Republic), Vlad Drăgulescu (Romania), Jonathan Lahey Dronsfield (UK), Bogdan Ghiu (Romania), David Goldenberg (UK), Nicu Ilfoveanu (Romania), Daniel Knorr (Germany), Jonas Lozoraitis (Lithuania), Petru Lucaci (Romania), Adina Mocanu (Romania), Alexandru Niculescu (Romania), Adrian Notz (Switzerland), Daniela Pălimariu (Romania), Mihai Pop (Romania), Delia Popa (Romania), Raluca Popa (Romania), Cristian Răduță (Romania), Alexandra Sand (Romania), Thomas Tsang (Hong Kong), Dan Vezentan (Romania) Exhibition design: Timo Grimberg (Germany)

The exhibition Dispositions in Time and Space brings up the mobility (understood as complex relational factor) and requests the participants to deliver their own discourse both in relation to the present, as a position undertaken, as well as in relation to the movement and evolution of what we call art. Also, another key aspect is how they define their current commitment to art through an unconditional relation to these two universal coordinates, Time and Space, whose absence renders any discourse impossible.

Performances program:
21.15h Anetta Mona Chișa (Czech Republic) / 21.25h Andreea Buțincu (Romania) / 21.45h Jonathan Lahey Dronsfield (UK)
