Join A¦B¦C ontemporary for the opening of the first solo gallery show in Zurich of artist/filmmaker Stefan Constantinescu's painting series
An Infinite Blue
A¦B¦C ontemporary, Breitensteinstr. 45, Zurich
Friday, November 7, 7pm-10pm
Started in 2009, the ongoing project is titled after a 1970 song by Romanian singer Angela Similea. The images originate in old Romanian Socialist propaganda photographs that through the artist's rendition, become testaments of a lost period in the artist's youth, that is wrought with nostalgia and longing, while also reflecting a dark moment in history.
The exhibition will also include several drawings and a video, Dacia 1300: My Generation.
This exhibition takes place in conjunction with the artist's exhibition at Corner College, I Dreamt of You
so Much That...
