Being an important contemporary artist and musician, Mircea Florian (1949, Baia Mare) has intensely developed his activity since 1965 in the following fields: multimedia, sound installation, cybernetic art, performance, video, press. The combined use of media is for him a model for his entire artistic career and a mental coordinate. He has started from melopoia (the merger of music and poetry as a minimum form of multimedia), composing music only for his own poems. He obtained musical interpretations of abstract drawings or a graphic discourse which mirrored a musical one. He exhibited works mainly related to sound and music and being most frequently kinetic: sculptures and sound installations, objects (Sound Books, Singing Tableaux Vivants), painted musical scores, collages, assemblages, neon works, video and film.
Raluca Nestor graduated the Master of Visual Arts at the National University of Arts in Bucharest in 2006. In 2011 she obtained a PhD from the same university in the field of New Media Aesthetics. She has taught the theory of new media at NUAB, since 2006 and she has curated various shows. She has constantly collaborated with artistic and cultural publications. In 2012 she graduates with a BA in philosophy at the University of Bucharest with a paper entitled Heidegger and the Paradigm of Contemporary Art.
The project is coordinated by Aurora Király, based on a concept developed together with Iosif Király.
