13 Mar 2017 I Do Not Matter!
I Do Not Matter!

Three great cultural cities, three grand stages and theatre shows „otherwise” for soulful people!      After the triumph from 2016, the ARTwise Tour recommences in 2017 and proposes, as a premiere, a different theatre show, unusual and topical: I Do Not Matter!. Some of the greatest Romanian stages shall host the show: - The National Theatre of Bucharest – Studio Hall (Bucharest, 13 March 2017, 7:00 p.m.) - National Theatre of Iași– Grand Hall (Iași, 21 February 2017, 7:00 p.m.) - The Bacovia Municipal Theatre – Grand Hall (Bacău, 20 February 2017, 8:00 p.m.) The play, written by a young unknown Romanian playwright, has gathered remarkable reviews for the premieres at the Elisabeta Theatre of Bucharest from November 2016. 500 spectators and theatre critics were surprised by the involvement of some of the best Romanian actors in a new private project, but also by a bold script blending dramatic tension specific to the theatre with the lyricism of live classical and folk music. Why do you need to take part in the ARTwise Tour? Because ARTwise means the promotion of young people, it means decency, high-quality culture and first and foremost it means change in terms of vision on arts and culture.   In the cast: Marian Râlea, holder of theUNITER award for best actor, shall play the leading role „Judas”, alternating with the great film and theatre actor Vlad Rădescu. The cast is replenished by actors with major roles on stages such as NTB, Odeon, the Masca Theatre, etc., illustrious actors such as Anamaria Pîslaru, Sorin Dinculescu şi Relu Poalelungi and young actors: Antonio Tadeusz Mincă, Beatrice Rubică, Altan Safta Zecheria, Georgiana Vratiu and Ştefan Opreanu. The show brings a surprise: the live soundtrack (Narcisa Băleanu, panpipe – folk music) with the extraordinary involvement of a prominent representative of the „George Enescu” Philharmonics: Adrian Petrescu, in his capacity as musical director. The tickets for all three shows are available on or at the box offices of the three theatres. The ARTwise National Tour was launched in 2016 at the Bacău Athenaeum with a modern symphonic concert, has continued with the launch of the „Nice Trilogy”, with premieres at the Elisabeta Theatre and shall continue in 2017 in the major Romanian cities, and the general public shall have the opportunity to witness theatre performances, symphonic concerts and book launches.

08 Dec 2016 Event at NTB: the Andy Warhol Exhibition and Slovakia
Event at NTB: the Andy Warhol Exhibition and Slovakia

Visiting schedule in the time frame 9 January – 23 February 2017 Daily between 14.00 – 19.30, except for monday   The access to the Rotunda foyer of the Small Hall is possible from the entrance towards the Carol Blvd. of the National Theatre building, from the alley ascending from the boulevard. Starting with 8th December 2016, at the ”I.L. Caragiale” National Theatre of Bucharest, the exhibition Andy Warhol and Slovakia shall be open to the public – event with an rich cultural resonance marking the end of the Slovak rotary presidency at the Council of the EU (July-December 2016). For over 2 months, for the first time in Romania, 85 works of different styles (drawings, prints, facsimile on canvas, photographs, and documents) shall be exhibited, as well as a few personal objects of the famous American artist with Slovak origins. The exhibits stem from the Andy Warhol Museum of Modern Art of Medzilaborce, Slovakia, the first of this kind in the world and to this day, unique in Europe. The main initiators of the museum, founded in 1991, were John Warhol (Vice-President of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts of New York), Dr. Michal Bycko, PhD , curator of the Bucharest exhibition and Michal Cihlář. The museum performs presentation activities, scientific research and exhibitions in the field of contemporary art, the main attractions being the Andy Warhol Exhibition - including Campbell soup cans, parts of the portfolios Ladies and Gentlemen (1975), Electric Chairs (1971), Lillian Carter (1977), Kimiko (1981), as well as works acquired from private collectors; The Exhibition on the Origins of Andy Warhol; the Paul and James Warhol Exhibition. Descendant of a poor family of Slovak immigrants from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania (parents Ondrej and Julia Warhola, born in Medzilaborce, Slovakia), Andy Warhol studies at Carnegie Mellon University from Pittsburgh, and moves afterwards to New York, where his creativity fully unfolds. Andy Warhol has imposed a revolutionary approach to all artistic genres he practiced - painting, sculpture, photography, music, film, fashion, literature. He attempted, in a way, to synchronise art with modern times, becoming the emblem of a new artistic genre – pop art. Charismatic magnet of the New York bohemian society, accepted in the fanciest high society circles, Andy Warhol has consecrated through his status of popular idol a new kind of fame and celebrity for a visual artist. The idea of touring this exhibition to Bucharest is by courtesy of the current Slovak Ambassador to Bucharest, His Excellency Mr. Jan Gabor, who recounts: ”20 years ago, during my at the Slovak Embassy in the USA, when I visited the Andy Warhol Museum from Pittsburgh – the largest American art museum dedicated to a single artist – I told myself that it would be nice to promote the knowledge about the Slovak roots of the King of Pop Art. Ten years ago, when Slovakia became an EU member during the rotary presidency of Ireland at the EU Council, I succeeded in bringing Andy Warhol to Dublin. And these days I am very happy to have the privilege to enjoy thisexhibition, inside the cultural sanctuary of Romania – country so close to us, Slovaks.” The exhibition is open to public viewing from 8th December 2016 to 23rd February 2017, daily between 14-18, except for Mondays, in the Rotunda of the NTB Small Hall, with access from the Carol Blvd.   Translated by Simona Nichiteanu
