The Contemporary Art Gallery presents the first solo institutional exhibition in North America for Romanian artist Ciprian Muresan.

Artistic and literary works are the starting point for Muresan who appropriates them in a reflective project that intersects with the recent history of Romania and other Eastern European countries
and, more generally, ponders the realities of the contemporary world. Included in the show are two newly commissioned pieces by the Contemporary Art Gallery with our partners FRAC Champagne-Ardenne and Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva: an installation, Recycled Playground, which gives the exhibition its title and overarching tone, and a companion video Protesting Against Myself. A selection of other significant works is also presented. Juggling humour and critique, the artist highlights the structures and processes of all forms of power.

Artistic and literary works are the starting point for Romanian artist Mureşan who appropriates them in a reflective project that intersects with the recent history of Romania and other Eastern European countries and more generally ponders the realities of the contemporary world often with an understated, wry humour. These negatives were taken from his remake/ homage of Yves Klein’s Saut dans le vides (1960) where the artist lays flat in melancholy rather than seen optimistically mid-air.

One of the most significant artists of his generation, solo exhibitions include Recycled Playground, Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver; the Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva and FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, Reims; Ciprian Mureşan and Tomáš Svoboda, Futura Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague Ciprian Mureşan, the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Berlin.
