Iulia Toma

Birth placeRomania Birth date1974

Iulia Gabriela Toma is a mixed-media artist who works with the means of aesthetic expression through textile, as well as with photography, painting, installation and text in each of her works. Recently she has been focusing on social issues that she expresses in her own individual way: feminism, women's rights, interpersonal relations of closed communities, the materiality of urban living, social justice, etc.. Toma builds a personal discourse that is expressively and aesthetically organised in visual and activist orientations, each time trying to place the balance between message and material at an ever increasingly elaborate level. She teaches in the Department of Art & Design, Textile section at the National University of Arts Bucharest, her pedagogical and artistic activity being a harmonious mix.

 

Among her recent exhibitions are: in 2019 "Displacement and Togetherness" (group show, Cultuurcentrum Strombeek Grimbergen, Belgium, part of the Europalia Arts Festival Romania), Art Encounters Biennial 3rd edition (group show, Timișoara, Romania), "After the Canal, there was only 'our' world" (group show, City Gallery – Mestna galerija, Ljubljana), 2018 "At Different Angles" (group show, MNAC – The National Museum of Contemporary Art, Bucharest), 2017 "In situ, B5 Studio" (group show, ArtEncounters Timișoara, Romania), 2016 "Dura-Europos" (solo show, Ivan Gallery, Bucharest), 2015 "Mapping Bucharest: Art, Memory, and Revolution 1916-2016" (group show, part of Vienna Biennale 2015, MAK Vienna), "Twilled Connections" (group show at tranzit.ro, Bucharest).
