The Space of Romanian Modernity, 1906-1947

 How did Romanian society relate to modernity in the first half of the twentieth century? What was the dynamic of its evolution, when viewed through the prism of a period extending before and after the inter-war years? ‘The Space of Romanian Modernity’ sets out to capture the complex, multiple facets of this period, using architecture as a sensitive tool of exploration. Structured around the archives of three representative architects – Henriette Delavrancea, Octav Doicescu and Paul Smărăndescu -, with numerous designs presented in the original as well as paintings, decorative art and period films, the exhibition goes beyond strictly architectural problematics to reconstruct an image of Romanian modernity.

 An exhibition organised by the Order of Romanian Architects and curated by Carmen Popescu

Interaction of Colour & Light in the Arts and Sciences

AIC 2011 Midterm Meeting in Zurich, Switzerland  www.aic2011.org


AIC 2011 Midterm Meeting of the International Colour Association (AIC)

7–10 June 2011, Zurich University of the Arts, Zurich, Switzerland

Conference Theme Much interest is devoted to the interaction of colour & light in today’s scientific and artistic research communities. New technologies, materials and media are now being deployed to enhance and stimulate our experience of daily life in real and virtual, permanent and ephemeral environments. The aim of the AIC 2011 conference is to explore how the interaction of colour & light plays a crucial role in the perception, conception and realization of spaces and platforms in different fields from both a theoretical and practical point of view. Using terms and concepts such as appearance, interaction, performance, event, and by privileging the materiality, mediality and the interactive dimension of colour & light, the conference presentations should demonstrate how productive the theme of the INTERACTION OF COLOUR & LIGHT IN THE ARTS AND SCIENCES is. The fields of inquiry include: education, design, art, media, lighting, architecture, theatre, dance, as well as psychology, colour science and technology. The AIC 2011 Midterm Meeting aims to further discussion and nurture the latest findings in these various fields.
