Nasui collection & gallery, Bucharest, Romania presents the project “Colouring the Grey” within the Liverpool Biennial Independents 2012, between September 21 and October 21, 2012 in St. George’s Hall, Gladstone and Dickens Galleries.

“Colouring the Grey” curatorial project has opened a series of three exhibi­tions, by bringing forward the Romanian emergent artists in international cultural spaces, in 2011-2012.

The concept illustrates an overview on the East-European identity in tran­sition.

The first was pre­sented within “Special Projects” section of the Moscow Bi­ennale of Contemporary Art 2011, under the name ”The Second Wave of Romanian Emerging Contemporary Artists” (September 2011).

Second exhibition was presented in Artists House Tel Aviv, the oldest cultural location in Israel (1948), developping the concept of “State of Mind” (November-December 2011).

The third and last part of the series is called ”State of Body” and is exposed within the Independents Liverpool Biennial 2012.

The exhibition will host, one evening, a debate on contemporary art, ”The Soft Power of the Art Market”.
