Invited independent art space: B5 Studio
Program: Tuesday – Friday 12.00 – 19.00, Saturday and Sunday 11.00 – 14.00
B5 Studio is an artist-run space conceived and initiated by Bartha József ten years ago, under the ARTeast Foundation umbrella, and is dedicated regularly to contemporary art events: artistic residencies, workshops, presentations group and personal exhibitions, etc. It invites artists, curators and theoreticians, both Hungarian, Romanian and international, with the aim to reconfigure the artistic life of Târgu Mureș and to connect the local and regional art scene to a broader art network.
In situ reenacts the B5 Studio’s archive of events, in an attempt to transform the memory into objective knowledge and the past into physical present. It re-contextualizes fragments of local history, the energy and the nodal points of the studio’s trajectory in supporting artistic debut, collaborative projects, expression through different artistic mediums, and an inter-ethnically depoliticized dialogue. It observes the way in which the exhibitions reflected the public space of Târgu Mureș and the Romanian social tensions, in a continuously historical transition
