Since opening to the public in May of 2012, Aiurart Contemporary Art Space has been a venue for contemporary art exhibitions, devoted to the diversity of contemporary forms of artistic expression from transdisciplinary productions and transversal art projects to paintings, sculpture, video art and installations.
Aiurart is a non-profit arts organization, an open space for curatorial projects and a contemporary art gallery, being run with the support of a consulting board. To date, Aiurart has staged more than forty exhibitions, including group exhibitions with international artists. This helped turn Aiurart into one of the most active contemporary art centers in Romania’s capital city, over the past couple of years.
In addition to the value of the art projects presented at Aiurart we aim a constant research focused on staging the curatorial discourse and innovation, on spatial narrative and on the role of the exhibition space as an immersive environment. Our curators and the exhibit designers team are reinventing Aiurart’s place, facilitating each time the forming of a special relationship between the exhibited works of art, the place and its guests.
Aiurart brings forth the joy of contemporary aesthetics and the intimacy of a pre-war mansion, exquisitely refurbished with the help of the architect Bogdan Pop and the ‘Asdesign 95’ team – a piece of restoration work nominated at the 2013 Bucharest Architecture Annual. Thus, Aiurart brings a telling contribution to the existing urban space restoration work whilst revitalizing the surrounding area through its cultural programmes.
