418 Gallery was founded in Bucharest in 2008. Our Munich branch opened two years ago. Since 2017, the gallery has its headquarters in Cetate, becoming the first rural gallery in Romania. The Cetate location is a generous exhibition and working space for our cutting-edge artists. They freely experiment there with installations, sculptures, kinetic and land art. The gallery is also dedicated to a survey of the Romanian and Eastern European avant-garde of the 1960s and 1970s. A few artists created abstract art behind the Iron Curtain. Vincentiu Grigorescu concentrated initially on geometrical abstraction, later on the materiality of the canvas. Since 2008, 418 Gallery and The Joana Grevers Foundation have organized an annual summer sculpture residency, with the CetateArtsDanube Sculpture Park created by the invited artists.
