One Night Gallery transforms the city center into a new media art street exhibition


On June 20 and 21, the 14th edition of One Night Gallery will remodel the city’s center into an artistic tour, formed of 13 places that will become exhibition spaces.

The artist that runs the new edition is Alina Bohoru, passionate illustrator, characters’ designer, part time animator and occasional muralist. Born in Timisoara, but working and living in Bucharest for several years, starting from the convention of the traditional illustration her works have gradually evolved towards digital.

The public can get to know two of Alina’s characters in augmented reality. They represent an adventurous duo created by Alina in virtual reality and translated into AR by One Night Gallery. Who wants to interact with them can enter One Night Gallery’s Instagram page and try the new AR filters. The synergy between Alina’s continuous curiosity towards the mew media and One Night Gallery’s mission of bringing innovation on the artistic stage created a surreal juxtaposition populated by unique characters.

The temporary redefinition of our manners of relating – with others and the surroundings – brings with it the need of adapting to the context of now. These new perspectives made us reinvent the concept of the immersive art-shows and to create the 14th edition of One Night Gallery starting from the manner in which we are getting back to the urban life respecting, at the same time, the social safety rules,” said the One Night Gallery team.

The exhibition will present Alina’s works in different media, through video-mapping, interactive installations, augmented reality, virtual reality or machine learning.

One of the characters will come in the meeting of the passersby on Calea Victoriei, putting hold on the façade of an emblematic building – the Stirbei Palace.
