The Holocaust in an international engraving exhibition at the National Museum of Art

A cry of pain for the victims of the Holocaust transposed into works of art is represented by the international engraving exhibition, inaugurated at the National Museum of Art of Moldova. There are 40 works by masters from 12 countries - a rigorous selection made by the well-known plastic artist Ovidiu Petca from Cluj, reports Moldova 1.

"The light of the ancestors" is thus titled the lithograph of Vlado Goreski from Macedonia. Along with other works performed in various techniques, it represents the homage of plastic artists from different geographical areas to the victims of the Holocaust.

“The idea of the exhibition started from the Cluj Art Museum. I invited a number of artists I knew. I knew their ability to enter this rather painful, sinister world. There are artists from 12 countries on three continents and each artist participates with two works,” said Ovidiu Petca, curator of the exhibition.

"An exhibition in collaboration with the Art Museum of Cluj - it is our first collaboration, curated by the remarkable graphic artist Ovidiu Petca. It brings together artists from all over the world with the same message, a message that makes us not forget about these horrors,” said Tudor Zbârnea, director of the National Art Museum.

The exhibition, dedicated to the tragic 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz camp, has another dimension.

The international exhibition of engraving "Holocaust" can be seen at the National Museum of Art of Moldova until March 1st.
