Art Safari is the first professional and public art pavilion in Romania, designed for both heritage and contemporary art. Art Safari will bring together more than 100 galleries and art dealers, museums and cultural institutions, both from Romania and abroad, that will exhibit high quality artworks, from paintings and sculptures to design and collectibles, in a refined curatorial manner.

Bucharest is a unique place where the past and the future collide. Also known as “Little Paris” at the beginning of the twentieth century, amputated by several demolitions carried out during the communist era and changed by the new architecture of the past twenty-five years, Bucharest is trying to define its identity. An identity that can only be achieved through cultural recovery. Art Safari, by the public cultural event it organizes, wants to place Bucharest again on the European cultural map.

Why Art Safari? Because Romania’s cultural history has been marked by repeated interruptions and adverse circumstances imposed on its artistic activity to the point of a complete breakage in its communication with the international art scene. Art Safari Bucharest aims to build a strong connection between heritage and contemporary art, artist-gallery-collector, cultural institution and the art market, so as to bring the entire cultural system closer to the public.

Art Safari Bucharest represents the passion to jointly build a local artistic system at European standards by involving all art market players.

There are many thoughts, ideas, opinions, beliefs in the realm of art, and if the various factions can be convinced to merge their talents toward the unified goal of success for the species -- so to speak -- this concept you describe, Daliana, would seem to be an ideal stairway toward Romanian re-emergence as a major player in the European art scene. I wish Romania good fortune in this endeavor.

The art illustrated here is fascinating, some of it exquisite, I think, and your photography captures it wonderfully.
