To start off this week, lets explore the Art Scene of Eastern Europe: On April 11th,  the exhibition on works by Oana Farcas at  Anca Poterasu Gallery in Bucharest is opening its doors to the public.Curated by Adina Drinceanu, Farcas paintings, informed by pictorial research, altering it, re-inventing it over again and in dissimilar keys, will fill the gallery space with paintings on memory and dreams, juxtapositions of colours and photographic effects within everyday narratives, confronting the viewer with a staged, uncanny reality, composed of pieces of realistic representational content and fictional elements.If you happen to be around, this exhibition will definitely be worth a visit.Another reason to celebrate this week is the 75th anniversary of iconic design company Knoll. At the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, new designs by OMA and Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby are going to reflect Knoll Commitment to Modern Design.More information to follow…
