White night of Balkan avant-garde

Saturday, November 14, the exhibition ‘Instances of the Modernism. Painting in Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, 1910-1940’ will have extending opening hours up to 4 AM, as well as dada performances. Entry is free. The National Art Museum of Romania invites you to seek refuse from the cold weather outside in the exhibition halls, for a get-together with the most avant-gardist of the Bulgarian, Greek and Romanian painters. Marcel Iancu’s ‘Architect’, Max Herman Maxy’s ‘Nude with an Idol’ or the ‘Dragon Composition’ by Victor Brauner are in dialogue with the ‘Woman in front of the Mirror’ by Ivan Abrasev, Chiril Tonev’s ‘Engineer’ peeps through the ‘Open Door’ by Nikos Chatzikyriakos-Ghikas, whereas Tristan Tzara’s ‘Masque’ listens to jazz at the ‘Cabaret Voltaire’. The exhibition halls will become animated from 5 PM to 8 PM! You are invited to a performance in the spirit of the avat0garde movements of the 20st century: young people from several Bucharest high schools will give an original interpretation to the Dada Manifesto Tristan Tzara published in the first and only issue of the ‘Cabaret Voltaire’ magazine. They will recite excerpts from texts written by authors such as Sasa Pana, Ion Vinea, Geo Bogza or Eugen Ionesco and will make surprising association of painting and literature.
