In 2023, the “Timisoara, European Capital of Culture” Programme will include the most important Victor Brauner‘s retrospective exhibition in Eastern Europe. 

Paintings, drawings, sculptures and emblematic objects for the artist‘s entire career, from both Romanian period and Parisian period, will be exhibited at the National Museum of Art Timisoara – many of them are presented for the first time to the Romanian public. 

The National Museum of Art in Timisoara benefits from an exceptional loan of 40 artworks from the prestigious collection of the Pompidou Center — that sums up almost 150 works signed by Victor Brauner, along with artworks selected from other important international museum collections, like Saint-Étienne Métropole (MAMC +), Musée Cantini Marseilles , and from Romanian museums and private collections.

By expanding the partnership between the Art Encounters Foundation and the National Museum of Modern Art in Paris / Center Pompidou, and thanks to the support of the French Institute in Timisoara, the exihibition ‘Victor Brauner: inventions and magic‘ will bring together over 80 artworks. The exhibition is curated by Camille Morando.

The exhibition will have an art catalog designed by Camille Morando and published thanks to Mr. Christian Derveloy through Graphic Art in collaboration with the Art Encounters Foundation.

The initiative is supported by the Timiş County Council, the main funding authority, and is organized by the Timisoara National Art Museum and the Art Encounters Foundation, in partnership with the French Institute in Romania, Timișoara branch, with the support of Comité Brauner and Fondation du Judaïsme Français.
