“McQueen” at Bucharest Fashion Film Festival
Directed by Ian Bonhôte, McQueen offers an intimate look at a young life and brilliant career that were tragically cut short. The British artist first worked as a chief designer for Givenchy, then founded his own Alexander McQueen brand. The movie presents his start as a tailor, to launching and overseeing his eponymous line and his untimely death. Can’t wait to see the movie myself since I’ve always followed and admired McQueen’s work. The film premieres at the Bucharest Fashion Film Festival 11-12 April and 12-18 April at American Independent Film Festival. Place: Cinema Elvire Popesco, Teatrul Odeon, Promenada and Fix | Botanical Bar.
Linda Tedsdotter: Apocalypse Insurance – When there are no more bullets
What first caught my attention about this event was, of course, its powerful name. Linda is a visual artist based in Sweden, and she aims to present in Bucharest a new part of the concept imagined in a very unexpected installation. The curator Razvan Ion states “Tedsdotter uses the reduction of power game that makes this exhibition desirable.” The exhibition is running since March 14, but there is still time for you to visit it until April 14.

Baugasm Solo Show
Vasjen Katro is a graphic designer and the brain and soul behind Baugasm, a project about graphic design, personal motivation and experimentation. I reckon I haven’t heard of this artist before but once I documented about him and about this exclusive show I fell in love. Qreator and Visual Playground invite us to ” witness a tour-de-force in which the 3D elements, neon colors, video projections and cosmic sensations come together, creating a sensory experience, perfectly linked to the digital universe that we all live in.” The exhibition is open until 14th of April 2019.

I know, I know, you’ve all heard about this exhibition since it was so well publicized, but who says we can’t write about it as well. This installation is about the teenager himself and it involves film, photography, comics or audio recordings; and they are closely related to the realities of the post-industrial landscape it documents. A rebellion, I might say, of a generation born and raised after 2000, where social media has become an addiction. More about Anti-Instagram here
Arta by Galateca
This project is articulated around a strong polarity: fantastic and real, ecology and technology, fear and play, history and narration, cynicism and innocence, authenticity and simulation, body and textile and the like. Agentia Defazata brought together Romanian and French artists to incite them to a plastic dialogue between these two countries. More here
