Il faut cultiver notre jardin

A new exhibition opening on June 26 at the 4th floor of Centrul de Interes, from 3pm to 7pm. “ll faut cultiver notre jardin”, project by Ovidiu Leuce, presents the work of 24 artists: Irina Dumitrascu, Florin Stefan, Mihai Platica, Ovidiu Leuce, Alex Mirutziu, Andrei Budescu, Andrei Ciurdarescu, Zsolt Berszan, Adrian Ghiman, Valentin Ionescu, Istvan Betuker, Gabriel Marian, Istvan Cimpan, Ioan Aurel Muresan, Robert Bosisio, Mihai Zgondoiu, Cristian Opris, Robert Andacs, Cristi Avram, Marius Fodor, Theodora Ispas, Delia Avram, Andrei Ispas, Vlad Paraschiv.

The exhibition is structured around the enigmatic concluding phrase from Voltaire’s “Candide, or Optimism” (1759). After the hero of the novel travels “in the best of all possible worlds”, but encounters an endless series of disasters, wars and other human madness, he ends up recommending the care of “our garden” as an antidote to ideological doctrines and as a recipe for a fulfilling life: “it is well said, answered Candide, but we must cultivate our garden.” The title of the exhibition is a response to the crisis of our time given by the artistic community which works at Centrul de Interes and not only.
