Arts network Tranzit starts Romanian section

Group intends to run a series of exhibitions and programmes, with first events to begin this summer

Tranzit, the network of central European arts organisations funded by Austria’s Erste Foundation, has founded a Romanian section. Tranzit Romania will be run by a team of five, including well-known artist and curator Lia Perjovschi.

Operating in the capital Bucharest, as well as the northern Romanian cities of Cluj and Iasi, Tranzit Romania intends to run a public programme of exhibitions and events, as well as acting as a platform for research and debate. Board member Raluca Voinea said that they were currently looking for permanent venues in each of three cities.

The Tranzit network was founded in 2002, with autonomous sections based in Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. The Romanian section will receive its own budget, to be managed by an administrative office in Iasi. Voinea expects the first events to begin in the early summer.
