28th of September: The Annual Salon of the UK-based Romanian Artists

https-cdn.evbuc.comimages348269281262828158671original     The third edition of our “Annual Salon of UK-based Romanian Artists” exhibition showcases the vibrancy and formal diversity of an ambitious creative medley: Alexandra Larion, Călina Lefter, Ana Maria Morar, Doina Moss and Adeline Timiş.

Alexandra Larion is a Romanian artist living in London. After having pursued a Bachelor’s Degree in Plastic Arts at the Art and Design University of Cluj-Napoca, she did a Master’s at the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts. Alexandra is currently collaborating with the IAGA Contemporary Art Gallery from Cluj-Napoca. The artist exhibited her works in various international exhibitions such as “Just Beneath the Skin: Investigations and Revelations” (Poland, 2016), “Identities” (2016, Bucharest), Parallax Art Fair (London, 2017). Currently Alexandra is studying Graphics at the Westminster University in London.

Călina Lefter was born in the Republic of Moldova. She finished her studies in 2002, at the “Nicolae Grigorescu” University of Arts in Bucharest, and straight after her graduation, Călina became member of the Romanian Artists’ Union. The artist moved to Milan in 2008, exhibiting her pieces in different Italian galleries. Some of the highlights in her career are: “Expo Milano” (2015), “Affordable Art Fair” (2013), “After East” (2010). At present, she is living in London, where she is exhibiting at different galleries.

Ana Maria Morar graduated from the “Babeş-Bolyai” University of Cluj-Napoca, where she studied communication and public relations. She later moved to the USA, where she got into the arts. Ana-Maria studied sculpture with Leonid Lerman at the “Art Students League” in New York, and is a candidate in the MFA sculpture programme at the NYSS (The New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture), under a Jane Chace Carroll Scholarship. She was the recipient of a Marion R. Netter Merit Scholarship in 2015 and, since then, her works have won awards every year at The Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery, New York.

Doina Moss is an alumna of both the “Ion Mincu” University of Architecture and Urbanism (Bucharest), and Sotheby’s Institute of Art (London). In 1988, Doina Moss moved to Great Britain and became member of the “Royal Institute of British Architects”. The artist has participated in several group exhibitions, killing two birds with one stone – her passion for architecture and that for visual arts. Doina Moss was invited this summer to exhibit her works at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

Adeline Timiș studied traditional graphics at the Art and Design University of Cluj-Napoca, where she focused on engraving and drawing techniques. In September 2013, the artist moved to Luton (Great Britain), and went for a study programme at the University of Bedfordshire. Adeline Timiș displayed her works within the International Impressionist Paintings Exhibition from Vaserului Valley (Romania, 2013), within a group exhibition at the University of Bedfordshire (Great Britain, 2015), and Yellow Dots (Great Britain 2016).

Targul Imobiliarium: Profilul bucurestenilor care planuiesc sa-si cumpere locuinta

Imobiliairum-editiaI (1).jpgProfilul bucuresteanului care vrea sa-si cumpere o locuinta in urmatoarele 12 luni are umartoarele caracteristice: femeie, tanara, casatorita si cu un venit peste 4500 lei, se arata intr-un studiu comandat de Storia.ro pentru targul Imobiliarium din 13-15 octombrie, la Baneasa Shopping City.

Putin peste jumatate, 50,83%, dintre cei 5.617 de respondenti ai studiului au declarat ca intentioneaza sa achizitioneze un camin intr-un an, iar 75,31% vor apartament si doar 24.69% se gandesc ca locuinta proprie sa fie o casa.

In privinta varstei, segmentul cel mai numeros, de 39,79%, se gaseste in intervalul 25-34 de ani, iar peste jumatate dintre respondenti sunt femei, 55,41%.

Statusul marital al respondentilor arata ca: 43,36% – sunt casatoriti;  24,73% – sunt singuri; 20,91%- sunt intr-o relatie.  Veniturile lunare sunt peste 4500 lei pentru 25,01% dintre respondenti, intre 2.500-3.000 lei pentru 13,31%, urmate de 3.000-3.500 lei pentru 9,39%.

UntitledIn ceea ce priveste bugetul pe care vor sa-l aloce cumpararii locuintei, trei intervale au rezultate foarte apropiate.

  • Buget intre 50.001 si 70.000 euro = 24.73%
  • Buget intre 30.001 si 50.000 euro = 24.06%
  • Buget pana in 30.000 euro = 24.83%

Chiar daca procentul este mic, numarul bucurestenilor care vor sa-si cumpere case de lux este relevant.

  • Buget intre 70.001 si 100.000 euro = 14.40%
  • Buget intre 100.001 si 150.000 euro = 6,55%
  • Buget peste 150.000 euro = 5,43%

Studiul a fost realizat in perioada 1-13 septembrie de catre firma Omniconvert, la comanda Storia (platforma de anunturi imobiliare OLX), partener principal al targului de locuinte Imobiliarium.

Rezultatele studiului sunt foarte apropiate de informatiile completate de vizitatorii Imobiliarium la editia din primavara, ceea ce confirma ca targul raspunde cerintelor pietei. Confirmarea ca suntem veriga dintre cererea actuala si oferta ne da un imbold puternic sa continuam pe drumul inceput. Pentru editia din toamna, 60% dintre locuintele prezente la eveniment,  pot fi achizitionate cu bugete de pana la 80.000 euro, iar 40% au un pret care depaseste acest prag. Se poate observa o usoara crestere a pretului comparativ cu editia din primavara”a declarat Adrian Stanescu, project manager Imobiliarium.

Intre 13-15 octombrie, pe o suprafata de 3000 mp, in parcarea centrala de la Baneasa Shopping City, expozitia tehnologizata de real-estate aduce peste 10.000 de locuinte de la 84 de expozanti.

Cei peste 7.000 de vizitatori asteptati vor avea si in editia a doua posibilitatea de a viziona case si apartamente din ofertele tuturor expozantilor cu ajutorul ochelarilor de Realitate Virtuala (VR).

Bucurestenii sunt foarte atenti in tot procesul de achizitie a unei locuinte: de la cautarea propriu-zisa care se poate intinde pe o platforma de anunturi pe o perioada de cateva luni, pana la documentarea la fata locului alaturi de un evaluator sau un arhitect. Tocmai de aceea, vedem si o calitate din ce in ce mai mare a ofertelor imobiliare, respectiv a modului prin care dezvoltatorii imobiliari aleg sa le prezinte – de la fotografii de calitate si video-uri adaugate in paginile de anunturi, pana la tururi virtuale realizate prin tehnologia VR, cum se intampla la Imobiliarium”, a declarat Gabriel Grecu, Sales Manager Storia.ro.

Intrarea este gratuita doar pentru persoanele care se inregistreaza pe www.imobiliarium.ro, pana joi, 12 octombrie, inclusiv. In perioada evenimentului, 13-15 octombrie, vizitatorii care nu detin codul primit online vor plati o taxa de 10 lei.

London: Wine tasting with a truly Romanian flavor

d46ca8bb-7462-4a19-8270-ebd784d17b60-original

Romania has a proud history of wine making stretching back over 6000 years. And, with over 75,000 acres of fresh vineyard planted since 2007, it’s a country the wine experts have begun to get really excited about.

Join us to taste an outstanding selection of the very best the region has to offer. Hear Mihnea Vasilache, Founder of the award-winning Dagon Clan Wines talking, at 7pm, about the history of Romanian wine and his passion for wine-making. There will also be the opportunity to order wine on the night.  All proceeds from this evening will go towards building a ground-breaking Children and Family Centre at Adunatii Copaceni, in Romania.

Hospices of Hope have been pioneering health care for patients with life-limiting illnesses in Romania, Serbia and Moldova for the past 25 years. The property, donated in 2012 by the Florescu family, is currently being renovated to provide a 12 bed in-patient respite centre for children with rare and life-limiting illnesses. The estate includes a historic conac (manor) which has been sympathetically restored as a listed building and there will be an exhibition of the progress of these works and more information on the project at the event.

Acordul-cadru pentru organizarea Festivalului Europalia România stabilește termenii în care se va desfășura colaborarea dintre România și Europalia International pentru pregătirea și organizarea ediției Europalia România.

Ministerul Culturii și Identității Naționale coordonează proiectul și colaborează cu Ministerul Afacerilor Externe, Institutul Cultural Român, Ministerul Turismului și Secretariatul General al Guvernului.

„Tot ce e important a fost consemnat în acest acord. E esențial că suntem o echipă și că avem aceleași obiective. Există o puternică motivație și implicare în acest proiect pe care dorim să îl realizăm împreună. Așteptăm cu nerăbdare prezența României la Festivalul Europalia 2019 – 2020”, a declarat contele Georges Jacobs de Hagen, președintele Europalia International.

„Europalia are o mare însemnătate pentru România, nu doar prin prisma anvergurii în sine a acestui Festival Internațional, ci și prin poziționarea sa în timp. În anul 2019, acest eveniment va fi o continuare a exercițiului președinției rotative a României la Consiliul Uniunii Europene, ceea ce înseamnă o prezență foarte puternică a țării noastre în Capitala Belgiei. Cu siguranță, 2019 va fi Anul României la Bruxelles, fapt care ne motivează să avem o strategie care să creeze un echilibru între promovarea patrimoniului românesc și promovarea artiștilor contemporani“, a subliniat doamna Liliana Țuroiu, președintele ICR.

Festivalul Europalia, Sezonul cultural România – Franța, aniversarea centenarului Marii Uniri și a Războiului de Întregire a Neamului, alături de Președinția română a Consiliului UE conturează un cadru prielnic pentru promovarea culturii române prin importante manifestări de diplomație culturală.

Potrivit Acordului-cadru, „Festivalul se distinge prin manifestări culturale și artistice de înalt nivel, reflectând atât trecutul țării, cât și vitalitatea creației contemporane“.

ECR leaders reject Juncker’s federalist ambition

Press release 
13th of September 2017
Following today’s State of the Union address by European Commission President Jean Claude Junker, the ECR Group Co-Chairmen Syed Kamall and Ryszard Legutko have both argued that the EU must urgently change its current direction and have rejected the federalist ambitions contained throughout the speech.
Speaking at the start of the debate, Dr. Kamall said:
“Today President Junker said the EU had the wind in its sails. Anyone that heard his speech now knows what direction he is sailing it in – towards a United States of Europe. Juncker’s plan is to step-by-step move more power away from Members States, and move it towards Brussels.
 
“The focus on trade was encouraging, as were the references to open markets and creating an environment friendly to business, entrepreneurs, and inward investment. But more and more regulation is not the answer, nor are more EU Growth plans. Businesses create jobs, and the EU needs to help them thrive.”
In summing up Juncker’s speech, Prof. Legutko said:
 
“Mr Junker has suggested there has been a debate on the Future of Europe. But a debate is when you don’t know the end conclusion. But we already know it. It will be the same old, ‘more Europe, more Europe’ and ‘we need to keep moving forwards’. That is not the answer. Let us look at what is happening first. We need to get the EU’s house in order before there can even be a discussion on centralizing even further.”
 
“It was surprising that Pres Juncker didn’t say much in conclusions from Brexit – we must all recognise that Brexit is a huge loss to the European Union.”

 

***

The ECR was created to take the EU in a new direction, according to the principles of our founding Prague Declaration. It is the third largest group in the European Parliament with 74 MEPs from 18 EU states.

Ban fur from London Fashion Week

oXOgzgHduBQFxix-800x450-noPadLondon Fashion Week starts this week! It has long been regarded as one of the pioneering and defining events of the fashion world. Spawning countless trends and providing platforms for some of the most famous designers that have ever existed. Yet even though London Fashion Week prides itself on paving the way for the future of fashion it is unable to progress beyond some of the darkest and most horrific practices committed by the fashion world.

Every year the fur industry is responsible for the death of 1 billion rabbits and 50 million other animals – including foxes, minks, dogs, cats, raccoons, chinchillas, seals and many more. Most of these animals are raised in fur farms, intensive facilities where the animals are kept in tiny cages and confined to a life of misery. These farms can hold thousands of animals and are designed to specifically maximize profits. These animals go insane performing psychotic repetitive behaviors such as circling endlessly in their cage as well as cannibalism and self-mutilation.

The most common methods of killing animals in fur farms is anal electrocution, gassing, poisoning or stomping on the animals and breaking their necks. These are all done to try and preserve the quality of the fur.

In the year 2000 fur farming was banned in the UK due to the horrific nature of these practices but fur can still be legally imported into this country. Why is it that London Fashion Week finds it morally justifiable to still provide a platform for fur and profit off the exploitation of an industry that was outlawed in the UK 17 years ago?

Big fashion labels like Armani, Stella McCartney, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, The Kooples, Vivienne Westwood and many more have denounced fur, yet London Fashion Week continues to provide the largest platform for fur in the UK. This has to stop.

As high fashion drips down into high street fashion, the relentless promotion of fur by high brow designers is culpable in the normalization of cheap high street fur items that have been brought back into shops and market stalls. No doubt imitations of the the fur items featured in LFW this year will soon be seen donned by members of the public in the not too distant future.

Please sign our petition to ban fur from London Fashion Week: https://www.change.org/p/british-fashion-council-ban-fur-from-london-fashion-week-2

This petition will be personally delivered to the British Fashion Council.

London: Arts and Crafts at Transylvania’s Bánffy Castle

https-cdn.evbuc.comimages347794871262828158671originalThe ARTEC exhibition, set up by Transylvania Trust Foundation in conjunction with the Bánffy Castle in Romania, opens at the RCI London as part of a series of events highlighting the remarkable conservation and restoration efforts which, throughout time, have revealed the amazing architectural heritage of Romania. The ARTEC project’s aim is that of bringing together the arts, crafts and architecture, similarly to the Arts and Crafts Movement of the late 19th century. With an introductory talk by Csilla Hegedüs, President of Transylvania Trust Foundation and former Secretary of State within the Ministry of Culture.

The Bánffy Castle, one of Romania’s 17th century architectural landmarks, is situated in the vicinity of Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania. From the fourteenth century through to 1944, Bánffy Castle was occupied by members of the aristocratic Bánffy family, whose ranks included the first governor of Transylvania under the Habsburgs as well as a nineteenth-century Hungarian prime minister. Throughout the centuries, Bánffy Castle was transformed to reflect the changing tastes of this wealthy and powerful family. During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the castle acquired a Renaissance façade that was further refined through the mid-eighteenth century, when the current Baroque footprint was established. During the first half of the nineteenth century, Gothic Revival modifications were made and the castle’s grounds were transformed into an English Romantic garden. In 1944, the castle was burned by retreating German troops in retaliation for pro-Allied efforts on the part of Count Miklós Bánffy. After the war, when Romania came under Communist control, the castle suffered neglect during the agrarian reforms in the region, and was looted for building materials. Vandals and natural decay further damaged the ruined castle.

In 1990, the castle was declared a historical monument, and in 1999 the revamping began with the support of several institutions, Romanian and foreign organizations, under the patronage of Prince Charles of Wales, who visited the castle several times. Bánffy Castle was included on the 2000 World Monuments Watch, spurring new interest in the preservation of the site. Using the memory of the place and the history of the castle as an inspirational drive, as well as the restoration work that is being undertaken, in 2016 the Transylvania Trust Foundation and its partners established an Arts and Crafts Centre to rebuild this bridge between the arts and traditional crafts, which were separated in the last decades of the former century. The concept behind the centre was the creation of a space that would be rooted in history and tradition, a place imbued with memory, which would be reinterpreted through contemporary lenses, bringing about an architectural frame that is both old and traditional, but at the same time is instilled with modern aesthetic qualities, encouraging artistic creation.

The ARTEC international project is coordinated by Transylvania Trust and implemented over a two- year period, from 1 November 2015 to 31 October 2017. It is supported by the European Union through the Creative Europe Programme.

The exhibition is open at 1 Belgrave Square until 26 September, Monday to Friday between 10 am – 5 pm.
