CONTEMP Gallery wishes to bring art closer to the people and conversely, people closer to art. Thus the desired public is not one only made of collectors and connoisseurs but also the ones that simply seek to understand and individualize their private and working space. The books you read, the music you listen to coupled with the imagery you contemplate mold your consciousness. Thereby, the public value of the gallery, as an interface, is significant in a society dominated by showrooms, ads and fake-news.

After he imagined and (re)presented the Romanian map as a tennis stadium, a ping pong table, a chess board, a fridge magnet, a war zone or a virtual space for computer games, Cosmin Petru Paulescu, or simply COZO, as he signs his work and is known in the Art sphere, continues his project “hArta (Map) Portable Territories”, started more than a decade ago, through a new event: the exhibition and performance: New Migrations. To the central motif of the whole project, the map of Romania, he now adds the maps of the European community where Romanians choose to live and work outside national boundaries, of countries such as Spain, Italy, Germany, UK, etc. Each of those maps, drawings, paintings and objects, borrow colors from the flags of. The new series brings fourth in a temperate manner one of the most intense contemporary problems, “the phenomenon of the new migrations”. The idea and it’s materializations, transcends socio-political aspects and anecdote. What matters is belongs to the visual realm exclusively. The expo will open with a novel eatable performance, inspired by the celebratory events of 2018, and by the fact that the NAG of this Fall coincides with the birthday of our artist.
