Each year, Art Safari Bucharest goes into less accessible, forgotten or unknown places in Bucharest. This year we’ll discover together Kretzulescu Galleries whose doors we open between 19 May to 18 June 2017. Kretzulescu building was created by the architect George M. Cantacuzino between 1934 – 1939, known by its galleries that are inspired by the classic Italian architecture. Before Kretzulescu Galleries were built (Calea Victoriei 45), people enjoyed Kretzulescu Inn, a building that housed shops and rooms. The Inn was demolished in 1938 and shortly after Kretzulescu Galleries were built. Between the 70s – 80s, the second and third floors hosted Informatics and Documentation Centre of the State’s Security Sistem. From 1989 until now galleries were closed, except the ground floor which houses bookstores also today.

The biggest art event in Romania invites you to Calea Victoriei 45, Bucharest at Kretzulescu Galleries.

“No, Dada did not spring full-grown from a Zurich literary salon but grew out of an already extremely vibrant artistic tradition in Eastern Europe – particularly Romania – that was transposed to Switzerland when a group of Romanian Modernists settled in Zurich. Bucharest and other cities in Romania had been the scene of Dada-like poetry, prose, and spectacle in the years before World War I; one of the leading lights was Tristan Tzara, who began his career in Avant-Garde literature at fifteen when he cofounded the magazine Simbolul in the extremely vibrant city of Bucharest together with, among others, Marcel Janco and the poet Ion Vinea. Tzara – who himself coined the term “Dada,” inspired by an obscure connection of his birthday to an Orthodox saint – was at the Cabaret Voltaire that night, along with his fellow Romanians Marcel, Jules, and Georges Janco and Arthur Segal.” Tom Sandqvist
