12 YEARS AFTER. A SURVEY OR ROMANIAN ART IN 180 WORKS.
MNAC / 11.12.2020 – 02.05.2021
Inherited mostly from other institutions and reflecting, up until 1990, the purchase mechanisms of the former communist cultural propaganda structures, the MNAC Collection reflects a nuanced outlook on Romanian artistic life, from a perspective guided not only by value criteria but also by an overview of the social, not only by value criteria but also from the complex perspective of social, economic and political contexts. The art acquisitions sessions organized following the establishment of MNAC Bucharest completed this fund with significant works — independent of ideological, political, conjunctural pressures. Through this approach, MNAC Bucharest emerged as the reference institution for the collection, conservation, research and museographic capitalization of representative visual creation in post-1989 Romania.
