On May 29th and 30th, 2015, Work in Progress and Thereart.ro present a new contemporary art and urban culture event, INTERSECTION, in partnership with Zeppelin, hosted by Halele Carol, Bucharest (1 Constantin Istrati Street, near Carol Park).
The event, supported by Grolsch, AQUA Carpatica, Jägermeister, THE PLOT, POSCA and Toyota, will focus on the concept of intersection, revealing how, within an unconventional space, various art forms can communicate and creatively enrich together the space with different meanings that the viewer is invited to discover and connect the works with the architecture of the building, its context, with sound and motion.
The event will include a contemporary art exhibition with installations, sculptures and printed works by artists from different fields who will interpret the theme of the event in their own vision: Aitch, Bast, Raluca Băraru, Lucian Baraitaru, Alina Bohoru, Otilia Cadar, Mihai Chiţu, Mimi Ciora, Liviu Coman, Amalia Dulhan, Dragoș-Radu Dumitrescu, Victor Fota, Loreta Isac, Kadna, Horaţiu Lazăr, Cristina Matei, Oliver Merce, Ileana Oancea, Cătălin Oancea, Florin Pantilimon, Mihaela Paraschivu, Pisica Pătrată, Obie Platon, Mircea Popescu, Lea Rasovszky, Saddo, Serebe, Diana Stanciu/ Ignissa, Ramona Şlug, Sorina Vazelina. The works will be printed with the support of THE PLOT. The event will also feature live performances and a fusion between contemporary dance and bboying by FREAKQUENCY, a performance by Franke and NTH, Drum’n’Fire and more, and also workshops of screen printing by Librăria Jumătatea Plină and a workshop by STORYSCAPES, the first Romanian association focusing on transmedia storytelling and interactive narratives.

About Work in Progress and Thereart.ro
Work in Progress is a project focused on discovering and revitalizing urban spaces with an uncertain identity or evolution through artistic interventions (street art, installation, performance, etc.). Work in Progress organizes cultural and art related events in these spaces, offering the public the possibility to interact with artists and reconsider the architectural, cultural or historic value of the chosen space.
Launched in 2013, Thereart.ro is an independent platform promoting Romanian and international contemporary artists, cultural initiatives and art related events which share the idea of art to refresh mindsets.
The event is the second collaboration between Work in Progress and The reart.ro, following their first event together in June 2013 at Ciclop Garage, which transformed the parking space into a permanent urban art gallery through the interventions of over 45 artists.
