Where? – ROMANIAN PAVILION
Why? – The Romanian Pavilion, curated by Mihai Pop, showcases Darwin’s Room, a selection of paintings organized across three rooms – according to the initial interior architecture of the Pavilion (from 1938) – and comprises a specific theme for each of these rooms: The Tempest, The Portrait Gallery (Self-portrait as Charles Darwin), and The Dissonances of History. Romania is also represented at the Venice Biennale by a second exhibition at the New Gallery of the Romanian Institute for Culture and Humanistic Research.
Curated by Diana Marincu, Inventing the Truth. On Fiction and Reality features the work of Romanian artists Michele Bressan, Carmen Dobre-Hametner, Alex Mirutziu, Lea Rasovszky, Stefan Sava, and Larisa Sitar.
