Baril Gallery was established in 2012 at the Paintbrush Factory in Cluj-Napoca. Since 2017 the gallery moved into a new venue at Centrul de Interes, a new hub for contemporary art in Cluj, initiated together with our fellow gallerists and artists.
The gallery is working mainly with international and Romanian young emerging artists, but also with established artists. For example kinema ikon, a prestigious experimental group founded in 1970, who has a strong presence on the international scene with works like their 1995 kinema ikon screening at Centre Pompidou or their 2003 Romanian Pavilion at Venice Biennale. Also Constantin Flondor, a significant Romanian artist, who has a fruitful career since the 60’s being a founding member of 1+1+1, Sigma Group and Prolog. Now he is part of various international collections such as Tate Modern London or Mumok Vienna.
Since the beginning, we have a regular gallery programme, also constantly attending international art fairs. In 2014, we won the Guido Carbone prize for the best New Entries Galleries at Artissima Torino.
The artists we are working with are: Sasha Auerbakh (Ru), Arantxa Etcheverria (Fr/Ro), Petra Ferniancovà (Sk), Constantin Flondor (Ro), Cristina Garrido (Sp), kinema ikon (Ro), Maxim Liulca (Ro), Sorin Neamțu (Ro), Mihai Platică (Ro), Cristi Puiu (Ro), Bogdan Vlăduță (Ro).
Baril is a gallery founded by Tiberiu Adelmann and Sorin Neamțu.
