An exhibition celebrating 100 years of Dadaism in Romania and rejoining works by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Joan Miró will be varnished in Bucharest at ArCuB’s Gabroveni HQs on February 5, at 6 p.m.
The exhibition is signed by the art historian Erwin Kessler and runs until April 26, during 14:00-22:00. There is no entrance fee.
“Tzara.Dada.Etc” will unveil the creations and works of Tristan Tzara, the Romanian and French avant-garde poet, essayist, journalist and film director, one of the founders and central figures of the anti-establishment Dada movement. It will also be the first international exhibition displaying great part of Tzara’s poems, illustrated by great world artists.
The exhibition will therefore unfold drawings and original graphic works signed by famous avant-garde representatives such as André Breton, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Sonia Delaunay, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, Yves Tanguy, Jean Arp and Marcel Iancu, as well as historical avant-garde publications, posters of some Dadaist interwar events and an impressive collection of vintage photos representing Tzara during all stages of his life. The works belong to Emilian Radu, one of the most awesome Romanian current virtuosi.
The exhibition is one of the events occasioned by the Bucharest’s European Capital of Culture bid in 2021.
