At the beginning of 2015 we joined forces with Work in Progress for INTERSECTION, a contemporary art and urban culture event which took place on May 29th and 30th at Halele Carol, in Bucharest. This is our second collaboration with Work in Progress, following the 2013 event at Ciclop Garage.
This time, we focused on the concept of intersection, inviting artists from different fields to picture a connection between the space, image, sound and motion that would be experienced by visitors through a 2 full day program which included a print, sculpture and installation exhibition, live performances, a special selection featuring avant-garde short films screened during the nine editions of NexT Film Festival, workshops, visuals and DJ sets (more info about the activities and artists involved in the event & video teasers here).
