The National Museum of Contemporary Art opened its doors in The Palace of Parliament, east wing, in the fall of 2004. In almost fifteen years, the museum’s program mapped many zones of interest of the Romanian contemporary art, thus meaning premiering or exposing artists or relevant groups from inside and outside Romania. From new media to traditional crafts, themed exhibitions to retrospectives or individual projects, from conceptual art to comic books, also architecture, design and urban planning, by these juxtapositions we intent to draw the big image of the cultural and artistic reality we’re contemporary with. The Museum has produced, hosted and supported numerous shows, work sessions, theatre festivals and contemporary dance.

MNAC Bucharest curates an itinerant visual art exhibition on inequality in life chances and ethnic differences, a nomadic pop-up museum that will travel without return to big offices and workplaces following its launch in the frame of Noaptea Albă a Galeriilor - NAG. George Vasilescu, Claudiu Cobilanschi, Simona Constantin + Suzana Dan + Cosmin Filișan, Soker.es are the selected artists that collaborated with the Rahova-Uranus community, MNAC Bucharest’s neighbors, as well as with residents of Aleea Livezilor (Ferentari), to create four works that bring together two opposing worlds, marginalised communities and young professionals working in big towers. This exhibition is offered by the museum to companies. Its participatory itinerary and the way it will be received by its public will also be documented. The Nomadic Museum public exhibition at MNAC Bucharest happens only one time, as part of NAG, in the artists' presence, when Playhood theatre will showcase their “Friday” performance. Following the event, the Museum will be ready to travel to companies that aim to facilitate access to the arts to their employees, right within the offices where they spend more than 8hrs a day. We suggest a moment of reflection upon the life that the majority defines as "the others", who are often misunderstood through prejudice, marginalized or ignored. At the same time, we launch a call to solidarity and a shift in organizational cultures towards socially conscious work ethic. The Nomadic Museum of Contemporary Art is part of the Community Outreach Program that aims audience development by creating educational projects and art interventions in place dedicated to targeted publics. The Museum becomes an agora for debating themes that only through dialogue between the members of the society could be better understood by fighting prejudice. The project is co-financed by the The Administration of National Cultural Fund (AFCN), through the financial line cultural projects II/2018, Visual Arts Section. Developed in partnership with Policy Center for Roma and Minorities.
