I am a space visionary and an art addict. I imagine, plan and create a space suiting your personality and expectations.
As an independent curator who works across multidisciplinary fields, I share a wide variety of innovative approaches, boundary-pushing curatorial concepts, exhibiting outside the art space and working with other disciplines, that are designed to inspire both the artists and the audience.
As a decorator, I understand the private space I am about to take charge of, depict the needs and the style of my clients and come out with the best proposals and advices, choosing from a large palette of artists and artworks, suitable for each taste.
I am an art curator and adviser living in Munich. Until January 2019, I was the chief curator at Galerie am Maxmonument and since 2014 I run the cultural platform Unexposed. Curating Ideas.
After completing my studies of Theater Science and Cultural Management at the University of Arts in Sibiu (Romania) in 2008, I was part of the organisers for the international programs European Capitals of Culture and International Theatre Festival of Sibiu. I worked as a cultural journalist for Romanian theatre scene and coordinated several local social initiatives.
I have extensive practice in project execution and collected experience in exhibition design, conceptual and independent project spaces, due to my diverse activity in over 10 years, so far.
Unexposed. Curating Ideas
is a cultural platform started in 2014 by Iulia Gradinaru as a startup project.
In the first two years, the platform launched young or yet undiscovered talents, offering the chance to step into Munich artistic market, free of charge. From 2016 -2018, the collaboration with the visual artist Wanja Belaga with the project Galerie am Maxmonument, hosted international names from different fields: visual arts, war journalism, social activism, fashion design and chamber music.
Unexposed sustains art and its protagonists out of services, personal and public funds and donations.
Surviving was possible exclusively out of passion and dedication.
