Call for Artists in Romania | Results
In early September, ING Tech Romania and ING Art Management launched a Call for Artists, an invitation to emerging and established artists based in Romania to submit existing works.
New office in Bucharest
The works of art were to be acquired and displayed in the hub’s new office in downtown Bucharest and become part of ING's global art collection, which explores the boundaries of figurative art and gathers contemporary pieces reflecting the company’s international and innovative identity.
Our quest was for fresh perspectives to reflect the world around in a progressive light and to embody relevant themes for ING - technology, discovery, human centricity, shared responsibility - without offering an interpretation of our brand.
The closing date found us counting roughly 500 applications. We are honoured and delighted by the overwhelming response and would like to thank each and every participant for answering our call. ING remains an attentive audience to the Romanian art scene and is committed to acting as an agent of cultural responsibility.
An interdisciplinary jury formed of art curators, guest artists and ING representatives have now finalized their independent assessment. It was not an easy undertaking, but the results are due and we are excited to share them. We believe the selection speaks to ING’s core, resonates with the spirit of ING Tech, and best serves the Call’s purpose. The merit of other submissions is beyond question, and works can potentially be considered for future art endeavours.
That being said, we extend our congratulations to the authors of selected works. We are honoured to welcome them into ING's global art collection.
