Hello City Trotters !

In continuation of attending exclusive events at different Embassies and Cultural Institutes, Protected content and they have kindly allowed to invite my friends to shine a spotlight on glass for a special exhibition signed by Ioan Nemțoi.

RCI’s Brâncuşi Gallery at 1 Belgrave Square shines a spotlight on glass for a special exhibition signed by Ioan Nemțoi, one of Romania’s most acclaimed contemporary artists. Often called ‘the Brâncuşi that works in glass’, the artist will inaugurate the exhibition with a talk about the transformation of craft into art, removing the border between decorative arts and monumental sculpture. Comprising a selection of outstanding glass works that sit at the intersection of sculpture and installation, the show will be accompanied by a short documentary about the artist’s life and work and will be prefaced by curator Mariana Nemțoi.

A graduate of the Bucharest Fine Arts Academy in Protected content a member of the Romanian Fine Artists’ Union, Ioan Nemțoi is a ground-breaking glass artist. A world-class creator, he is much appreciated for his striking fantasy and for his impeccable technique. Nemțoi uses the transparency of glass to outline a magnificent visual reality, in which the primordial elements of the universe - water, air, fire and earth - become the accomplices of the aesthetic act. He takes one of the most fragile materials in the world and turns it into opulent, powerful works of art. Always in competition with the great names of glass sculpture such as Dale Chihuly, Marvin Lipofsky, Howard Ben Tré, Yoichi Ohira, Mona Hatoum, or Jean Arp, his works can be found in famous collections, such as that of King Harald of Denmark, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, Kofi Annan or Vladimir Putin, Emma Nicholson, HRH Princess Margareta of Romania, but also in the Vatican Museum, Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf, at the UNICEF headquarters in New York, McLarren Technology in the UK, Waterland Neeltje Jans Museum in the Netherlands, The White House in Washington or famous galleries in Romania, Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, France, Italy, Canada, the USA, Japan, Hungary, Germany or Belgium.

Event will be followed by exclusive Romanian wine reception.
