Quadro Gallery is a modern art gallery founded in 2008, in recognition of the fact that the 20th century has bequeathed us a vast and rich regional artistic heritage which is not very well known, exhibited and promoted.
Our activity has a regional focus on the art of Transylvania, but we also think of the region in a broader sense: Romania, Eastern and Central Europe, the Eastern Block, etc., acknowledging that there are specific meanings behind all these levels.
The study of certain art phenomena is not only a duty for the past, but it also allows for a better understanding of the present, of the historical, cultural context, of the social, political and economic phenomena in this part of Europe, all of which have effects on the current social medium and art.
The gallery has succeeded in coagulating a consistent public and in gathering important collectors around its events, which we consider to be the most important result of our activity, entitling us to believe that the gallery is also a factor of social cohesion and development.
Quadro Gallery is situated in the Rhédey House in downtown Cluj, the building which also housed the first Hungarian theatre in the world, as early as 1792. We consider this fact symbolic for our engagement to be not only a commercial gallery, but a cultural landmark of Cluj open to the world.
