The exhibition is on view September 8th – October 30th, 2021. Convergent Acts is the closure event of Bubble’n’Squeak, the pop up curatorial space created by Galleria Anna Marra (Rome), Montoro12 Gallery (Rome-Brussels) and Gallery Nosco (London-Marseille). Bubble’n’Squeak, from March 2021, presented in its Brussels space 6 international exhibitions, and more then 40 artists from all around the world. Convergent Acts is a group exhibition that brings together eleven artists from nine different countries, most of whom are based in Europe. Steeped in material traditions and the poetics of the ephemeral, the wide range of works in this exhibition — from video installations to photography, drawings, paintings and sculptures — set a scenario that allows the artists to confront global issues such as migration, gender, race, the natural environment, and social inequality. The artists reflect upon their experiences to speak to the construction of cultural identity, their decisions, and the place they now inhabit in their lives. Convergent Acts presents intentional processes that serve […]

Real places, structured and defined, yet absolutely different from all other social spaces: these are Heterotopias, as conceived by Michel Foucault. Worlds within worlds, mirroring and yet upsetting what is outside. They are disturbing, intense, incompatible, contradictory or transforming.
We used to think of them as places such as prisons, gardens, cemeteries, museums, asylums, cinemas, ships. What happened these past months catapulted all of us in a massive, universal heterotopia.

Bubble’n’Squeak is proud to present Electric Crossroads, a group exhibition by an incredible selection of Romanian artists, spanning from crucial figures of the Romanian art history to contemporary emerging artists working across a variety of media. The exhibition is intended as a multigenerational dialogue across time, geographies and art practices to promote fruitful moments of interaction between the presented bodies of work and their cultural histories. At times of lockdown and social isolation, when we find ourselves craving for human interaction and proximity, Electric Crossroads’ goal is to represent a cultural bridge between Romanian art history and the rest of the continent’s as well as a fervid ground to develop an artistic dialogue across media: painting, drawing, installation and sculptural work engage in a curatorial assemblage of histories and cultural influences. The powerful selection of artists has been curatorially thought through by multimedia artist Radu Oreian (b. 1984) who has envisioned a crossroad as a cultural meeting point for the artists where to establish energetic, somewhat electric connections – “a lavish intersection of matter and thought.” Such crossroads can be interpreted as connection points linking together Romanian art practices of the past with emerging ones fighting to gain recognition in […]
