Join Apsara DiQuinzio, curator of modern and contemporary art and Phyllis C. Wattis MATRIX Curator, for a walk-through of Geta Brătescu / MATRIX 254.

MATRIX 254 features the work of Romanian artist Geta Brătescu (b. 1926), who has been living and working in Bucharest since the 1950s. Working across a wide range of media (graphic design, drawing, video, textiles, performance, installation, photography, and printmaking), Brătescu is a central figure in postwar Romanian art. Having exhibited regularly in Romania throughout her career, she has maintained a rigorous studio practice that continues into the present. Due primarily to Communist leader Nicolae Ceauşescu’s totalitarian regime (1967–89), which suppressed the work of avant-garde artists living and working in Romania, and the subsequent political isolation of the country, Brătescu’s work was little known to international audiences until fairly recently. For MATRIX 254, Brătescu’s first solo exhibition in a U.S. museum, the artist presents a focused selection of key works made between the years 1977 and 2000.
