Text from the curators:

Museums are set up and live through the means of their collections.
The objects in each and every collection convey the historical information of the past and document the present in the benefit of future researches. Baron Samuel von Brukenthal collected, in addition to old valuables of arts and sciences, the contemporary creation of his time. According to this tradition, Brukenthal National Museum continues the work in relating the collections with the artistic actuality, the exhibition presenting items from the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art that is establishing the heritage of the following centuries.
For Brukenthal National Museum in Sibiu, year 2017 holds many significances: the 10 years celebration since Romania became a full member of the European Union, the 10 years celebration since Sibiu became Cultural Capital of Europe and, especially, 200 years since its public opening. În accordance to these significant numbers, the exhibition concept presents two groups of artists: “the 20” and “the 17”, illustrating the evolution of the contemporary art in Romania, as documented in the Museum’s collection.
“The 20” (Petre Achițenie, Virgil Almăşanu, Gheorghe I. Anghel, Horia Bernea, Ștefan Bertalan, Maria Bodor, Marcel Bunea, Rodica Chișu, Peter Connerth, Sorin Dumitrescu, Teodor Hrib, Sorin Ilfoveanu , Tudor Lorman, Ion Pacea, Ion Sălişteanu, Gheorghe Spiridon, Dorian Szasz, Lia Szasz, Ion Vlad and Grigore Zincovschi) represent a generation mostly active in the 80s. Although dealing with the communist ideology and restrictions, their work is reflecting the high education received at fine art institutes in Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca and Iași under the masters of Romanian art that evinced brilliantly the European trends especially during interwar period. Some of the artist in the first group acquired renown in diaspora, some of them teach in nowadays Romanian art universities and some of them received national recognition through important decorations or academy affiliation
“The 17” (Zsolt Berszan, István Betuker, Zamfira Bîrzu, Cristian Diaconescu, Gabriela Drinceanu, Adrian Luca, Ilie Mitrea, Ioan Muntean, Mihai Pamfil, Mihai Pâslariu, Andrei Popa, Cătălin Precup, Florica Prevenda, Robert Strebeli, Albert Sofian, Veres Szabolcs and Sorina Țibacov) represent the young generation, in full process of acquiring artistic identity. They are the update factor of the Romanian contemporary art scene not only in terms of trends and innovation but also in respect to accessing European and international educational systems by scholarships, M.A. and PhD. studies. More inclined towards interdisciplinary, they benefit in the re-opening of the homo europaeus experience for the Romanian artists.
The exhibition presents a selection of 37 works, covering painting, drawing, tapestry, engraving, sculpture, kinetic composition, collage, photography, installation and mixed techniques.
