Renaissance Society Exhibition: “The Seductiveness of the Interval,” featuring work of Romanian artists, May 2 – June 27

Opening Reception: Sunday, May 2, 4:00 – 7:00pm
Artist Talk 5:00 – 6:00pm (in room 307, directly below the gallery)

The Renaissance Society presents The Seductiveness of the Interval, a project presented at the Romanian Pavilion of the 2009 Venice Biennale. The work of three Romanian artists–Stefan Constantinescu, Andrea Faciu and Ciprian Muresan–is exhibited in a two-story architectural structure designed specifically for that purpose by studio BASAR. Together, the artists explore themes of exile, the human capacity for cruelty, and hope. Although the artists’ works are distinct in terms of form and content, they are united by a structure conceived as a stage set where the viewer is invited to reflect on the individual works and the viewing experience itself.
