FRAME10, a project initiated by Rezidența9 together with Michele Bressan, presents the approaches and practices of photographic artists of the post-2000 generation, who today are identified with a new wave of Romanian photography.
Each FRAME10 meeting proposes a presentation by the artist, followed by a conversation with Michele Bressan, but also with the audience present. The aim is to explore and fix a moment of Romanian contemporary art in full swing, which deserves to be validated through a lively dialogue.
The artist Alexandra Croitoru is invited to the meeting scheduled for Friday, March 3, from 7 p.m., at Rezidența9.
Alexandra Croitoru (b. 1975) is a visual artist who lives and works in Bucharest. Since 1999 she has been teaching in the Photo-Video department of the National University of Arts in Bucharest.
Her artistic projects have been presented in exhibitions organized by institutions such as LACMA Los Angeles, Bozar Bruxelles, Art Encounters Timisoara, Kunsthalle Winterthur, MNAC Bucharest, MUMOK Vienna, Zachęta National Gallery of Art Warsaw, MNAR Bucharest, Schedhalle Zürich, Casino Luxembourg, Salon of the Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade, Center for Contemporary Art Plovdiv or the Brukenthal Museum Sibiu.
In 2014 she received the title of Doctor, conferred by the Bucharest National University of Arts, for a thesis centered on the “nationalization” of Brancusi in Romania, which was the basis of the book published in 2015 – Brancusi. An eternal life (IDEA Cluj & Archive Books Berlin).
Since 2011, she has been co-curator of the Salonul de proiecte București, an independent space dedicated to artistic research and production.
Access to the event is free, and the public is encouraged to prepare questions for the two.
