Space is Not the Place / Mircea Popescu / MNAC București

Space is Not The Place – mural painting on the interior stairs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Bucharest, part of the URBAN STEPS project, powered by MOLOTOW.

URBAN STEPS highlights 20 years of urban art in Romania. Labelled as a Guerrilla Art movement, the Graffiti phenomenon gained momentum at the beginning of ‘98, in conjunction with local rap music. Meanwhile, the Romanian graffiti scene developed and became consolidated through various contests, urban festivals, legal (or not) street murals, as well as through exhibitions and dedicated projects.

URBAN STEPS is the first complex graffiti project curated and hosted by an art museum in Romania.
