Text from the curators:

Holder of the “Lorenzo il Magnifico” prize at the Contemporary Art Biennale in Florence 2015, Ilie Mitrea returns for the third time in Brukenthal Museum’s exhibition halls with a project suggestively entitled The Gift.
The artist’s gift offered to Baron Samuel von Brukenthal – seven paintings (oil on canvas) and installation – is not only a cultural reverence occasioned by the 2017 Brukenthal Bicentennial but also a novelty project, a historical update and an invitation to the imagination.
The exhibition opens a dialogue between the dynamic in which collection of paintings are set and the today’s visitor in exhibitions.
So, if you want to see how Samuel von Brukenthal would have looked like if portrayed by Francis Bacon, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Vincent Van Gogh or Alfons Mucha, please join to the reinterpretation exercise proposed by Ilie Mitrea, based on models for which stand five 18th c. portraits of the Baron, displayed in Brukenthal Palace art galleries.
The exhibition also presents an installation and the illustration of the artwork emergence from workshop to the museum.
Painting restorer with Brukenthal National Museum laboratories and member of the Brukenthal von Studio art group, Ilie Mitrea is an illustrative presence in the contemporary art for the creative phenomenon generated in and from the fundamentals of cultural heritage.
