May 29 June 2

MoBU International Art Fair of Bucharest, the newest contemporary art platform in Central and Eastern Europe, is the largest most important event of its kind in Romania.

We bring together galleries, artist run spaces, groups of independent artists and emerging artists. The event comes as a firm response to the growing art market, puts Bucharest on the international map of art markets, and answers to the expectations of a new, informed public, interested in all mainstream aspects of contemporary art and its surroundings.

Save the date! It is May 29th – June 2nd 2024, at Romexpo, Central Pavilion, you have a meeting with MoBU. The organizers have prepared a complex, multi-functional, 22,000 square meter indoor and outdoor exhibition pavilion. With a program that includes all the activities specific to art fairs, including cultural accompaniment and mediation, guided tours, colateral events, collaborations with galleries from Romania and the international scene and with cultural institutions of repute, MoBU brings you an original diverse cultural offer, specific to this region in Europe.

“The second edition of MoBU highlights artists and works from Germany, Romania, the Republic of Moldova, Poland, and Ukraine. Additionally, we have invited art faculties from Bucharest, Cluj, Iași, and Timișoara to showcase themselves and the future of contemporary art, resulting in this year’s event’s hybrid nature. Although different from 2023, we still hope we have found the right formula to connect the Romanian public with the art market. Since contemporary art invites conceptualization and reflection, I invite you to MoBU to discover art in another dimension.” – Demetra Arapu, Director of MoBU

“MOBU is, as we already know, the place where collectors, experts, and of course, the general public encounter the most diverse expressions of contemporary art, from traditional approaches, to visual experiments and artistic research. Remarkably, MOBU has the openness and flexibility to include in its program artist-run spaces, art faculties, a series of round tables and artist talks, as well as video screenings and performative activities. All these make MOBU an unmissable event! See you there!” – Horea AVRAM, art critic, curator
