press release

Opening: April 27, 7pm

The Ephemerist is a comprehensive inquiry into the work of Mihai Olos (1940–2015), probably the most important artist in post-WW2 Romania, spirit kindred to Buckminster Fuller, Yona Friedman and other such visionaries. Active between Romania and Germany, Olos left an impressive body of work, exploring various media (painting, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, fashion, performance, poetry) and stylistic trends of late modernism, like conceptualism and minimalism. The second installment of the exhibition inaugurated in November 2016 expands the knowledge about the life and oeuvre of Olos through photographs, documents, objects and a large selection of drawings.
