EXPERIMENTAL PROJECT is a non-governamental, apolitical and non-profit association initiated by Olivia Nitis and Ciprian Ciuclea, created in order to achieve cultural, educational and research programs. Through these programs, EXPERIMENTAL PROJECT aims to provide a public space for expression and affirmation of cultural and artistic values. Experimental Project is a project that is self-financed from donations and sponsorships.
IEEB is Romania’s premier international experimental printmaking art festival. Over the past 12 years the Biennal has established itself as one of the most respected events of its kind in the world. IEEB gives our community new ways of looking at the world and new ways of seeing and understanding the art of printmaking in contemporary society. Each exhibition enlivens our public spaces with contemporary art and encourages dynamic curatorial practices.
