#52-53 UAP 100

The 52-53 issue of Revista ARTA proposes a foray into the history of the 100 years of professional organization of visual artists in Romania, from the Fine Arts Union of 1921 to the Union of Visual Artists of today – a long period, marked by many political changes and radical, social or economic problems. The guild of visual arts professionals has not only brilliantly survived but continues to produce major exhibition events within the contemporary art scene, events discussed in the pages of this issue. The National Salon of Contemporary Art, the U.A.P. Awards Gala, the dozens of domestic and international exhibitions recorded in the gallery’s diary are just a few examples of events produced or supported by the organization now known as the Union of Visual Artists in Romania.
Issue coordinated by Petru Lucaci
