The latest edition of One Night Gallery presented the works of the artist Alina Bohoru in 13 spaces in Bucharest’s city center, taking the shape of a street exhibition. The content will also be exhibited in Timisoara in August, in partnership with the Timisoara 2021 Association, at the future space Multiplexity, now the Museum of Public Transport Corneliu Miklosi.

The artistic tour in Bucharest included physical exhibitions in different stores’ or coffee shops’ windows, as well as collaborative installations created through video-mapping or machine learning.
In order to explore Alina’s characters in augmented reality as well, Mihai Cojocaru, the creative director of One Night Gallery, developed three Instagram filters that have been already used by over 4.500 people and that had a reach of over 21.000. With the help of a filter the visitors could scan one of the works dedicated to the partner George. The first intelligent banking, in order to see its 3D animation. Through the means of the other two filters they could interact with Beeple and Birdman, the two characters created by the artists for the first time in virtual reality.
The post-event video can be seen here.
One Night Gallery puts at the disposal of the artists different technological creation means and know-how that can be used to develop new skills and works in new media art. The filters continue to be available on One Night Gallery’s Instagram account and the public can extend the exhibition space wherever he is.
