Allegra Nomad Gallery (founded in 2012) does not belong to a particular architectural or geographical space and is always in search of new forms of dialogue with the already existent exhibition spaces for contemporary art and not only, forwarding its efforts towards the offering of support and promotion for the gallery artists. The gallery conceived and organized several exhibitions in Bucharest and Vienna to present the artists: Philippa von Bastha, Horia Mina, Paul Neagu, Sorin Dumitrescu, Nikolai Ghika, Carla Damian and Dario Caratta.

The space of the hall is turned into a rupturing forum by placing a wooden structure with a platform and benches for the visitors.
The platform is cut into two symmetrical half-spaces that aim to re-stage two dimensions of the contemporary arts field: art which is accompanied by an explicatory discourse or with a shape owing to verbal conceptualisation; and art with a non-verbal and primarily material discourse. On the one side are artists who, generically speaking, sit and paint on an easel, but they can practice any other classical form of art (sculpture, drawing, object installation, photography), on the other, artist who explain their works, conceptualising (performance, speech, dance, happening). On the one hand are visual arts, and of the other, performative arts.
The audience is urged to assist and turn into an art critic and make critical judgements.
