Gallery owner and curator Anca Negescu talks about opening an art gallery in Romania


My name is Anca Negescu. I am an art gallery owner and curator. My gallery is located in the center of Bucharest, Romania and it shows mainly Romanian contemporary artists, both established and emerging. I obtained my BA in foreign languages at the University of Bucharest and my MBA at the Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies. My entrepreneurial experience developed fast as I started early with my own translations office and then various extremely successful marketing and management projects. Yet I felt that I was not doing what I was supposed to do, and that something was missing.

That is when my passion for art and beauty and my desire to do something that adds value to my society by offering ‘food for the soul’ pushed me out of my comfort zone. I took numerous art history and art management courses both in Bucharest and at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London.  After two years of intense preparations, I opened Artfooly, The Slice of Art Gallery, which has grown beautifully. In its one year of existence, we have had mostly solo shows, many enjoying extraordinary media and public success. One of the shows we proudly presented was the world premiere of “The Atlas Of Beauty,” a photographic project by Mihaela Noroc, which has become the most media-featured Romanian artistic project in the world.
