Founded at the beginning of 2002, add is a nongovernmental, non-profit registered organization, which has as mission the development of youth’s creative abilities.


The organization acts as catalyst for new ideas and strategies of collaboration between, artists and cultural institutions on the one hand and companies from the business community on the other. The purpose is to help young artists and creative people and to offer other categories of youths opportunities to participate in art projects, as well as to bring into the dialogue with the business sector issues like the value of culture in today’s Romanian society and modalities of supporting the arts.

galeria noua




Within the context of contemporary art galleries in Bucharest, Galeria Noua has, from its opening in October 2001, a clear identity in terms both of its profile (photography and new media) and the coherence of its exhibitions and events.


Galeria Noua is a NGO that presents Romanian and international artists, and collaborates with local and European galleries, museums and contemporary art centres. Besides the exhibition programme (that maintains a balance between the presentation of established Romanian and international artists and the support of emerging artists), Galeria Noua functions as a place for dialogue and information on contemporary art topics, succeeding in being both a mainstream space and an alternative one.

In order to keep the coherence of the programme, exhibitions are initiated and/or selected by a board led by the curator Aurora Kiraly. The board gathers twice a year and selects projects and artists to be presented in the gallery.


“Through the stress put on different levels of the trans-regional artistic and cultural production, Galeria Noua is one of the places in the region that provides a potential frame for enlarging and developing new ways of artistic cooperation. Nevertheless, above all,   through the exhibitions and events that it organises, the gallery is a meeting place for all the locals interested in the new forms of visual art.”

Georg Schöllhammer - Editor contemporary art magazine Springerin, Austria

Founded in 2003 by Matei Caltia, Galeria Posibila soon established itself as a leading institution on the Romanian art market. Dealing both with artists and collectors and trying to make room for new representations of art in the Romanian art scene the gallery is actively supporting young artists to produce and exhibit their works. Printing catalogues that overview the local visual art scene or that focuses on one particular artist, help improve the local awareness on artists and art itself.

From 2006 the gallery’s aim is to get an international experience and to help build a wider awareness for its artists, by participating to international Art Fairs, eg. Bologna Arte Fiera, or by exhibiting in galleries abroad, eg. Galleri Centrum, Graz.

The gallery portfolio contains numerous young Romanian artists that are national wide appreciated as well as emerging ones. Roman Tolici, Nicu Ilfoveanu, Florin Ciulache, Iuliana Vîlsan, Gheorghe Fikl, Vali Chincisan, Irina Botea, or recently “M.Sterian” art prize winner Gili Mocanu are among the best of them.

For 2006 the gallery prepares a glimpse on contemporary Romanian drawing, starting with Roman Tolici from February.
