OMV presents “Dialogue: New Energies”

Romanian contemporary art is considered a remarkable phenomenon which has enjoyed considerable appreciation at world level in recent years. The special presentation titled “Dialogue: New Energies,” initiated and supported by OMV at VIENNAFAIR The New Contemporary on October 2-5, 2014, will highlight Romania’s cultural history of the past 50 years.
Ever since 2011 OMV has been supporting special presentations at VIENNAFAIR The New Contemporary. OMV’s “Dialogue: New Energies” project brings up to the forefront this year over 30 contemporary art visions from Romania, presented in five galleries – Anaid Art Gallery, Anca Poterasu Gallery, Jecza Gallery, Plan B Gallery and the Zorzini Gallery – and two non-profit spaces – ATELIER 030202 and ALERT Studio. The curatorial initiative of the “Dialogue: New Energies” project has been entrusted to curator Andreiana Mihail.
The novelty of this exhibition included in the VIENNAFAIR The New Contemporary is represented by the curatorial approach which tries to present an illuminating chronicle of the diverse community that Romanian contemporary art represents. From the classics of contemporary art, often considered “new” because of their lack of exposure during the communist period, to young artists that explore and recount their personal stories independent of the sociopolitical perspective, “Dialogue: New Energies” seeks to attain the fine balance between the commercial purpose inherent in a fair and the clarity and coherence of a theoretical profile that would reflect on adaptation and assumption, seen as the most important existential attitudes in Romania’s recent history.
Through “Dialogue: New Energies” OMV wants to contribute to cultural dialogue in the contemporary art domain. Alongside Austria and Turkey, Romania is one of the company’s main integrated international oil and gas markets. For ten years OMV has been majority shareholder of OMV Petrom, the biggest oil and natural gas producer in South East Europe, with headquarters in Bucharest.
