Visual arts

Our arts programme, hosted in the Institute's Brancuși Hall, presents significant names and trends in Romanian arts of all generations and in all eras. With the support of the RCI, Romanian artists also exhibit in well-known museums and galleries in and outside London. Our art programmes include design, fashion and architecture - hence extending beyond traditional boundaries. Among our partners in the arts are major institutions such as Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Victoria & Albert Museum, Camden Arts Centre, Royal Academy of Art, London Festival of Architecture and Design.
