The Museum Night at NTB 12 June 2021
The exhibitions in the lobbies of the "I.L. Caragiale" National Theatre will be open to visitors on Museum Night on June 12th, 2021. Becoming traditional, the event Museum Night takes place this year on June 12th, 2021, ensuring free access to the public in various museums, collections and temporary exhibitions until late at night…. In this context, the "I.L. Caragiale" National Theatre invites you to visit the two exhibitions that are open to visit currently in its exhibition spaces: - Exhibition Instants of Life of the scenographer-painter Ion Olaru in the Media Foyer of NTB (wing towards the Intercontinental Hotel) - with direct access from the esplanade where you also enter the Painting and Media Halls. On display is a wide selection of works by Ion Olaru, the scenographer - painter, author of dozens of television sets, set props, but also scenography for animated films, also a painter, creator of icons or surprising "micro-monuments of harmony",made of an unusual material… gourd! - The exhibition Retroversible, of the Fashion Department from UNArte, in the Rotonda and in the Foyer of the NTB Small Hall - with direct access from Carol Blvd. The exhibition Retroversible is, first of all, a desperate cry to find a space for Adina Nanu's costume collection. It is, then, an opportunity to show the connection between this collection of old clothes with the most recent productions of future fashion designers in Romania. The partnership between the Collection and UNArte is, in fact, an old relationship, since the establishment of the Fashion Department, which has always functioned in all the 50 years that UnArte celebrates this year (1971 - 2021). Access (with mask and observing the distance between visitors) will be allowed in the above exhibitions on June 12th, 2021 between 16.00 - 24.00. Translated by Simona Nichiteanu

Ion Olaru - Instants of Life 27 May 2021
After a long break, we invite you to the opening! With the resumption of theatrical activities in all its performance halls (at 50% capacity for the time being), starting May 15th, 2021, the "I.L. Caragiale" National Theatre reopens the exhibition spaces in the foyer for visits. In this context, we invite you on Thursday, May 27th, 2021 at 6.00 p.m., in the NTB Media Foyer (wing facing Intercontinental), to an encounter with the artist Ion Olaru and the art critic Virgil Mocanu, during the opening of the exhibition Instants of Life, an opening postponed by more than two months since the actual opening of the exhibition! On display is a wide selection of works by Ion Olaru, the scenographer - painter, author of dozens of television and theatre scenographies, as well as scenographies for animated films, painter, creator of icons or surprising "micro-monuments of universal harmony" (according to Corneliu Antim, art critic), elaborated from an unusual material... gourd! The selection was put together by the curator of the exhibition, Ioana Alexandru, the artist's daughter. Ion Olaru graduated in 1971 from the Nicolae Grigorescu Art Institute (scenography section), where he later became a lecturer himself and is one of the most creative and prolific television set designers, where he worked for almost four decades (between 1971 and 2008), and was awarded the APTR Prize for lifetime achievement in 2005.  He is a member of UAP, Bucharest branch, scenography section. Attending the opening, entering the exhibition, and visiting it still requires wearing the mask inside and observing the social distancing rules imposed by the current epidemiological situation.
