The Conquest of the Impossible. Exhibition in Bucharest
"Brancovan Palaces" - Mogosoaia Cultural Center, Bucharest, Romania
IEEB is Romania’s premier international experimental printmaking art festival. Over the past 10 years the Biennal has established itself as one of the most respected events of its kind in the world.
The 6th edition of IEEB will address issues of ecology. “Ecological Thinking and Practices” is the general theme of the edition that will bring forth a variety of environmental issues. Artist’s thinking and production function as a tool for observing, criticizing and revealing aspects of our life that are sometimes not enough debated, going unnoticed and being left marginal.
The exhibition "The Conquest of the Impossible" will be hosted at the Mogosoaia Cultural Center in Bucharest and it will include an international selection of 16 artists. It will develop different topics as the spaces we inhabit, the concept of landscape and nature itself; the manipulation of the image of nature (political, commercial, military, etc); the sense of awareness of place and of care towards that which is native, both from a social and naturalistic point of view; a study on social geography and the concern with the uneven distribution of wealth or the importance of making an inventory of global resources; etc.
