“Good Girls”, Exhibition at MNAC thru Sept 29

“Good Girls”, a “gender” art exhibit running at the National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC) in Bucharest until late September, features works by Geta Bratescu, Nina Arbore, Irina Broboana and Suzana Fantanariu.
“Good Girls” is an international  showcase offering a broad perspective on contemporary art made by women, according to the Polish Institute Bucharest website  The “Good Girls”, a prosaic title inspire by two previous curatorial projects, brings up again the  “bad girls” paradigm coined  by Marcia Tucker in the 1990s, a moment relating to American  feminism-influenced artists and curators; the “No More Bad Girls?” exhibition in Vienna  2010 is the other connection, which investigates alternative geographies and multiple cultural identities in this age of globalization. Starting with the ‘90s Romanian female artists and curators have organized some smaller displays dedicated to feminist art and art made of women. “Good Girls” focuses on female artist works focused on memory, desire and power. Most of the participating artists live and work in Europe, half of them being Romanian. The exhibit will also contain works by Polish artist Katarzyna Kozyra, who studied at the Department of German Studies of the University of Warsaw, 1985-1988, and sculpture, at the Warsaw Academy of Arts. After graduation, in 1993, she switched from sculpture to photography, video installation and performance. In 1997, the Polityka magazine gave her the Politics Passport – the award for most promising Polish artist.
Bojana Pejic is the curator of the exhibition and Olivia Nitis, assistant curator. Nina Arbore, Ana Banica, Ethel Baias Lucia Dem Balacescu, Biroul Melodramatic, Geta Bratescu, Irina Broboana, Ioana Ciocan, Alexandra Croitoru, Suzana Dan, Cristina David and Corina Ilea are among the Romanian artists to display their works in the “Good Girls” exhibition.
