The Ephemerist. A Mihai Olos Retrospective
10 November 2016 – 08 October 2017

Curator: Călin Dan
Assistant curator: Sandra Demetrescu

Active between Romania and Germany in the years 1970-2000, Mihai Olos left an impressive body of work, exploring various techniques (painting, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, fashion, performance, poetry), and several stylistic trends (late modernism, conceptualism, minimalism). The Ephemerist is the first attempt at a comprehensive look into the work of probably the most important artist in post-WW2 Romania, spirit kindred to Buckminster Fuller, Yona Friedman and other such visionaries.
