CTG Collective, Sandwich and Catinca Tabacaru Gallery are pleased to announce the opening of Staycation, an exhibition mounted across two Bucharest spaces - Galeria Catinca Tabacaru and Sandwich Offspace - featuring 6 Berlin-based and 6 Romanian artists. While the exhibition is the most visible part of the project, it is also a direct response to a week-long Symposium that took place in July in Bucharest, introducing all participants to the city and to each other.
Sourcing a connection between the current global pandemic and feminist thought does not yield immediate satisfaction. How does baking a focaccia, drifting through Delta Văcărești, or collective dreaming connect to, say, ecology, environmentalism and solidarity? In the heavy heat of July in Bucharest, we offered ourselves time for silence, group discussions, and even collective dreaming. The Staycation dialogues moved as fast as slow-living can, having a gentle rhythm, exchange at its core, and the present moment, as important references in the ethos of its resulting exhibition.
