HOUSE OF MIRRORS

Artists: Ioanida Costache, Noche Crist, Megan Dominescu, Serban Ionescu, books by Saul Steinberg

Curated by Adriana Blidaru

October 14 - December 16, 2022

The exhibition takes the idea of the traditional fun maze, often present at funfairs and amusement parks, to explore the construction of identity as the result of purposeful artifice and embedded beliefs, and to challenge the grounds upon which this is built.

The five artists in the exhibition, while from different generations, relate to one another through their interest in how selfhood is constructed, misshapen, and remodeled through idealized and refined concepts such as nationality, history, and personal memory. Together, they shape the exhibition into a sensual and virtual space, where subconscious narratives and fragmented reminiscences unravel a dream-like scenario.

"House of Mirrors" is the opening exhibition of the first edition of "The Salon of Romanian-American Artists”, Romanian Cultural Institute’s newest permanent program in New York. The Salon has been designed as a platform for Romanian artists living in the U.S. or for American artists of Romanian background through a major annual event.

This exhibition is made possible with the support of R & Company, Gallery 2112, and The Saul Steinberg Foundation.

Venue: Romanian Cultural Institute
