    Co-organized exhibition by Aiurart within the ARCUB 2017 Exhibition Program proposed by Alex Radu (co-founder Aiurart).

    The solo show CONTAGION renders a statement, a visual testimony of the idea that nothing and no one exist autonomously and independently from a context. Each socio-cultural island is connected-contaminated with the ideas, sensations and experiences around it. In this line, self-awareness becomes an act of conciliation between “sides”, which lose their singularity given by a hypothetical autonomy towards the “whole”. The solo show CONTAGION, although unitarily conceived, is not aimed as a monolithic exhibition, but as a statement seemingly eclectic from a temporal and material perspective, resorting to diverse media and fragments from different instances in which the traces of an ongoing process of knowledge through “image” are marked.

    Dumitru Gorzo, one of the most important Romanian contemporary visual artists, works and lives in New York and in Bucharest. Born in 1975, in Ieud, Maramureș, he graduates from the University of Arts from Bucharest in 1998, and in 1999 completes the extended studies. Along Nicolae Comănescu, Alina Pențac and Angela Bontaș, he founds and activates in the group called Rostopasca, between 1997 and 2001. As from 2007, 2008, Gorzo moves to New York where, represented by SLAG Contemporary New York, Brooklyn, is active up to now. Lately he exhibited in New York, Dublin, San Francisco, Colorado, Huston, Koln, Bassel, Viena, Istanbul, Timișoara, Miercurea Ciuc and Bucharest.
