The exhibition “ Camilian Demetrescu – DACICA ”, curated by Cornelia Bujin, at the National Roman Museum – Palazzo Massimo until 21 April 2024, fits fully into the dialogue of the modern with the ancient in the important exhibition “DACIA – The last frontier of Romanity", set up from 21 November 2023 to 21 April 2024 in the exhibition spaces of the National Roman Museum - Baths of Diocletian, the largest and most prestigious exhibition of archaeological finds organized by Romania abroad in recent decades, to retrace the historical and cultural development of its territory over a period of over fifteen hundred years, from the 8th century. BC to the 8th century. A.D

The artistic work of Camilian Demetrescu, due to his direct descent and training, is influenced not only philologically by the memory of places, but is intrinsically linked to them in the dimension of a time that is not only linear and chronological time, but is "Cosmic" and “Mythical”. The time of memory becomes, in Demetrescu's informal artistic works of the 1970s, the culture of an anthropological memory to be rediscovered and passed on. His sculptures work in the sign of "an ancient fabric" left by Costantin Brancusi which, in interpreting the world of Romanian tradition, the symbols and the relationship with memory, becomes more articulated and complex.


An exhibition supported and desired by the ICAS Parliamentary Intergroup Culture Art Sport, by the Embassy of Romania and welcomed by the National Roman Museum, of great symbolic and empathetic strength, conceived as a point-based event in the city, with the aim of showing in different locations such as the Museum Roman National Gallery of Palazzo Massimo and the Baths of Diocletian and the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, the artistic expressiveness of this profound interpreter of 20th century art.

Thirteen works on display, all dedicated and inspired by the theme of Dacian mythology, ten of which are set up in the rooms on the first floor of Palazzo Massimo, while the two Masks of Zalmoxis dedicated to the Dacian god, one will be present at the Baths of Diocletian, in direct dialogue with the exhibition “ DACIA – The last frontier of Romanity ”, and in the permanent headquarters of the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, where it is exhibited.
