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 by studio BASAR specifically for that purpose. 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.
Co-organized with the Romanian Cultural Institute.
The opening reception will be on May 2, 2010, from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. There will be a discussion with the artist from 5:00pm to 6:00 pm.
