SPAȚIU INTACT is a non-profit art space showing a range of thought-provoking creative positions within contemporary art and culture, through a programme of curated exhibitions and events purely for the public benefit.Including a gallery and a studio, SPAȚIU INTACT opened in 2012 and, since then, it has become a central meeting point between major international artists, the artistic community in Cluj and Romania and the local audience, continuously fostering interaction, exchange of ideas and an appreciation for creative endeavour and experiment.
The Studio is dedicated to artistic residencies. The invited residents are graduates of the Romanian art universities, who need support and space at the outset of their career. They are actively involved in the public programme of the gallery and have the chance to present their work to curators, gallerists and collectors who visit the gallery. The studio also hosts international established artists interested in spending time in Cluj and learning about the local art scene. Occasionally they exhibit new and existing work in solo shows at Spatiu Intact.
The gallery and the studio are financed by the Intact Cultural Foundation through its own resources, collaborations with foreign cultural institutes, private contributions and sponsorships.
SPAȚIU INTACT is located at Centrul de Interes (str. Fabricii de chibrituri nr. 9), a former industrial building converted into a creative hub hosting various art galleries and studios, united under the Galleries and Artists Federation (FGAFP). On the site of SPAȚIU INTACT there was the quality control section. Our history has always been the future.
