Romanian artist in residence

Romanian contemporary artist Mircea Nicolae served as the first Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist in Residence at the School of Art, during the academic year 2010–11. Nicolae spent the month of April collaborating with students and faculty to transform his drawings of four kiosks into physical structures of metal, Plexiglas, and paint as part of his exhibition, “Romanian Kiosk Company.” The kiosks, reproductions of original structures built in Bucharest between 1986 and 2000, work with a video installation to reflect Nicolae’s focus on the political and economic structure of his home country. The exhibition was on view at the 32 Edgewood Gallery during April, May, and June, and will be open again in September. Lead support for the residency and exhibition is provided by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
