Exhibition Total Value:
The first edition of The Salon of Romanian-American Artists, our newest permanent program, opens on October 14 with "House of Mirrors", an exhibition bringing together Ioanida Costache, Noche Crist, Megan Dominescu, Serban Ionescu, and Saul Steinberg, five artists who, while from different generations, relate to one another through their interest in how selfhood is constructed, misshapen and remodeled via idealized, refined concepts of nationality and history or through personal memory.
The exhibition is curated by Adriana Blidaru and its concept takes the idea of the traditional fun maze, often present at funfairs and amusement parks, to explore the construction of identity, both as the result of purposeful artifice and embedded beliefs, and to challenge and shake the grounds upon which it is built. All five artists shape the exhibition into a sensual and virtual space, where subconscious narratives and fragmented reminiscences unravel a dream-like scenario.
The Salon of Romanian-American Artists is a permanent program of the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York that gives a voice and a platform to Romanian artists living in the U.S. or to American artists of Romanian background through a major annual event.
The inaugural exhibition of the Salon of Romanian-American Artists will be open October 14 - December 16, 2022, at the RCI New York’s Brâncuşi Gallery.
This exhibition is made possible with the support of R & Company, Gallery 2112, and The Saul Steinberg Foundation.
