Cristian Raduta in Dispositions in Time and Space exhibition at National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC), Bucharest
Exhibition generated by the Mobile Biennale 1
Curator: Adrian Bojenoiu
28 November 2014-29 March 2015
2nd floor
The exhibition Dispositions in Time and Space brings up the mobility (understood as complex relational factor) and requests the participants to deliver their own discourse both in relation to the present, as a position undertaken, as well as in relation to the movement and evolution of what we call art. Also, another key aspect is how they define their current commitment to art through an unconditional relation to these two universal coordinates, Time and Space, whose absence renders any discourse impossible.
