The ROM Presents Public Events to Complement Dan Perjovschi

(Toronto, Ontario – February 1, 2010) The Institute for
Contemporary Culture (ICC) at the Royal Ontario Museum
(ROM) announces a series of thought-provoking films and
events in conjunction with the art installation,
DanPerjovschi: Late News, opening on February 22, 2010.
Distinguished in the world of contemporary art, Dan
Perjovschi will draw his brilliant and irreverent cartoons
directly onto the dramatic soaring walls of the Roloff Beny
Gallery, on Level 4 of the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal at the
ROM between February 15 and 22.
He will spend this time in residence at the Museum creating his
unique site-specific line drawings while interacting with ROM visitors.
This original work will remain on display until August 15, 2010.

Over winter and spring 2010, the ICC will host several public events exploring political and
cultural themes suggested by Late News, ranging from the power of the political cartoon in today's world, to Romania's vibrant contemporary society.

FILM: The New Wave of Romanian Cinema: Screening and Panel Discussion
Thursday, February 4, 2010, 7 p.m.
Signy and Cléophée Eaton Theatre, Level 1B
The ICC teams up with ToRo Arts Group, a not-for-profit organization purposed on the promotion of
Romanian culture in Toronto, to present the film La nouvelle vague roumain (2008), by Marius Doicov and
Vincent Guyottot. The screening is followed by a panel discussion on the much-discussed New Wave of
Romanian Cinema and its aesthetic ways of addressing the ‘messiness of Romanian life, its cruelty, bare-bones richness and overwhelming humour.’ Panelists include Tudor Giurgiu (producer, director and president of the Transylvania International Film Festival), Jennie Punter (film critic and contributor to the Globe and Mail newspaper), and Adam Nayman (film critic). The panel will be moderated by Calin Mihailescu. The ToRo Arts Group presents an annual Romanian film festival each February, and coordinates other events throughout the year to highlight the contemporary culture of Romania.

About Dan Perjovschi: Late News:
From February 15 to February 22, 2010, Dan Perjovschi will transform the walls of the Roloff Beny Gallery. While working in the gallery, he will immerse himself in local media, surveying news from local and international newspapers, internet, TV and radio, which will provide the inspiration for his work. Perjovschi’s acclaimed exhibitions are always a personal response to the social and political atmosphere, and the geographic
location, in which they are created. The works will be created during public hours, allowing Museum visitors to observe the creation in progress, making the drawing project a performance in itself. The installation will remain on view until August 15, 2010. As the work will be painted over at the conclusion of the exhibition period, the ICC will produce a free publication (available in the gallery in the spring) that will be the record of the Late News installation.

About Dan Perjovschi:
Romanian-born Dan Perjovschi is an artist who mixes drawing, cartoon and graffiti in artistic pieces drawn directly on the walls of European and American museums and contemporary art spaces. These drawings – both witty and incisive – comment on current political, social or cultural issues or events. His stark style of line drawing allows him to condense the conflicts and dilemmas of the world into a rapid-response commentary that is both political and honest.

Institute for Contemporary Culture
The Institute for Contemporary Culture (ICC) plays a vital role at the ROM, a museum whose collections
embrace many civilizations through the ages. While the ROM documents history, the ICC is the ROM’s
window on contemporary society, exploring current cultural issues through exhibitions of art, lectures, film series, and informal gatherings. The ROM’s collections provide context and depth to the contemporary issues addressed by participants in ICC events from around the world. In this, and many other ways, the ICC serves as a catalyst for stimulating public conversations.
