La masa

“La Masa” opened at Airport Sibiu

Romanian cultural landscape is richer of one remarkable exhibition: “La Masa” opened at Sibiu International Airport. Seven artists from seven countries which contributed to contemporary Transilvanian cuisine are showing photographs, paintings and urban art, related to food. The artworks are displayed on the public accessable areas of the airport. Therefore it is estimated that more then 1 Million people will see the exhibition. “La Masa”is the most visible art exhibition in Romania ever. “We have to bring visual arts into the daily life of people”, explains curator Thomas Emmerling, who is as well director of Kunsthaus 7B in Cisnadioara (Jud. Sibiu). “We want to provoke and confrontate people with art, where they usually don’t expect it”, continues  Emmerling. The curatorial idea to show art related to food, had been born because of “Sibiu 2019 – European Gastronomic Region”. “The unique in Transilvanian food is, that it has combined influences from Western and Eastern Europe. This we want to point out in an artistic context”. The participating artists are: Klaus Pichler, Vienna, photo, Nicolas Friess, Paris, photo, Evangelia Taka, Thessaloniki, painting, Patrizia Casagranda, Trento, urban-art, János Eifler, Budapest, photo, Ingrid Weiszman, Berlin, painting, Albert Sofian, Sibiu, painting
