The Rituals, Keepers and Storms exhibition represents a necessary gesture of reassessment and documentary research of the body of works Relics for the Afterfuture (Brown), created between 2009–2010 by the late artist Ioana Nemeș
(1979–2011). This cutout from the artist’s remarkable creation, who left us far too soon, restores one of the major thematic directions of her creative laboratory and represents the early nucleus of a larger project that the current exhibition foreshadows.
The exhibition is organized by the Art Encounters Foundation and is co-financed by the Municipality of Timișoara through the Center for Projects and the Administration of the National Cultural Fund (AFCN), with MNAC Bucharest and S.M.A.K. Ghent as strategic partners.
The project does not necessarily represent the position of the Administration of the National Cultural Fund. AFCN is not responsible for the content of the project or how the results of the project may be used. These are entirely the responsibility of the beneficiary of the funding.
The project is part of the national cultural program "Timișoara – European Capital of Culture in 2023" and is financed through the European Echoes program, run by the Center for Projects of the Municipality of Timișoara, with amounts allocated from the state budget, through the budget of the Ministry of Culture.
