The Coketown Effect. Liviu Bulea / Oana Maria Pop | The Others Art Fair 2021
Curated by Alessia Belotti, Melania Raimondi and Camilla Remondina
The Others Art Fair, Torino Esposizioni, Turin
BOOMing Contemporary Art Show, online
The Coketown Effect talks about the effects of excessive industrialization reflecting on the social, economic and political conditions of contemporary Romania and more generally of Eastern Europe. As in Dickens’s Coketown, the city cancels individual identity by fostering increasing generalization and socio-economic inequalities.
The project is one of the winners of the open call for curators under 30 of The Others Art Fair and will be exhibited during the fair in Turin from November 4 to 7, 2021.
The success of the project was possible thanks to the collaboration of the artists Liviu Bulea and Oana Maria Pop and the gallery IAGA Contemporary Art in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
