Art & Exhibitions


Art illumination is a discipline in and of itself. In art, lighting has many roles - from the use of natural daylight to creating scenes and experiences, creating accent lighting and all the way to true color rendering and preserving precious exhibits from damaging UV and IR rays.

Greentek R&D team developed a special light color - named ART, specifically for this purpose. With a color rendering index of 98, it makes shades and textures stand out - whether we talk about paintings, textiles or modern installations. 

Benefits

  • LED luminaires equipped with ART - a special temperature light color with a CRI of 98, render colors in all their beauty.

  • Intelligent lighting managment blends daylight and artificial light and allows for preset scenarios (for example when the museum is closed or work is underway in some sectors) for distinct areas. 

  • Significant energy savings coming from LED technology and smart lighting.


Projects

Sector 1 Gallery

Opened in 2017, Sector 1 Gallery started with the mission to bring back to life a forgotten space that would be fully dedicated to contemporary artwork. The art gallery is located in the premises of the Bucharest Compound Plastic Fund, a complex space consisting of various buildings. The space has a rich history that preserves elements of the original architecture, combining the industrial style with the modern elements. Through the successful launch of Sector 1 Gallery, the whole Bucharest Compound Plastic Fund turns into a modern contemporary art center, hosting several galleries and workshops for artists. Particularly, Sector 1 is a contemporary art gallery that functions as a space that wants to contribute to the evolution of the contemporary artistic elite. Starting from its inauguration, the art gallery promoted various successful contemporary artists from Cluj. The most recent exhibition: "Peisajul labirint"  (The Labyrinth Landscape) celebrates the 70th anniversary of Ioan Sbarciu, one of the most well-known artists and pedagogues from the elite of the Romanian contemporary art, professor of famous Cluj painters, collectively known as School of Cluj, an artist at his peak, completely devoted to his studio. The exhibition of the artist Ioan Sbarciu is a metaphor of the journey in his own pictorial practice. To present the collection in just the right light, we used 31 Artus TRK linear luminaires and 9 Caster track spotlights in the art gallery's main hall and adjacent spaces. The lighting design respects the mix between modern and industrial that we encounter in the gallery, specific to various art museums in the world. Modern track mounted luminaires and spotlights were installed on a track system that blends with the black ceiling. Our Artus TRK modern track linear luminaires with 110-degree angle beams spread a large amount of light towards the exhibition space. Moreover, Artus TRK fixtures with 50W and 3000K color temperature act as wall washers. Then, Caster projectors with 42W and 30-degree angle beam complete the ceiling lighting with precise light, revealing the colors and textures of the exhibits. Caster is equipped with ART special color with CRI98. This special color is particularly used in art because it enhances colors and textures, while staying true to the original shades, form and concept, with excellent color rendering. Paintings require a uniform, glare-free illumination, that enhances their artistic value, and the lighting should not damage them. The innovative LED technology we use meet the gallery requirements and is the only light source that contains no IR/UV rays. This significantly reduces the risk of colors fading or sensitive materials being damaged.

Romania's Pavilion at The 2017 Venice Biennale

Established in 1895, when the first International Art Exhibition was organized, the Biennale is now one of the most prestigious cultural institutions in the world. Until today, more than 500,000 people have visited the Art Exhibition. Later than 1895, new festivals inside the Biennale were born: Music, Cinema and Theatre, followed by the Architecture Exhibition in 1930 and Dance performance in 1999. On Venice Biennale 2017, Romania’s Pavilion has been considered one of the 5 most triumphant national pavilions, according to Artnet. The 57th Venice Biennale hosted Geta Bratescu's exhibition "Apparitions", a participation that brings together several works from all the stages of her artistic trajectory. Many of the art pieces were shown for the first time, demonstrating a high capacity to employ a wide range of artistic mediums including drawing, photography, film, textile work, and sculpture. Geta Bratescu, a central figure of local contemporary art since the 1960s, draws on a series of procedures from the visual and conceptual arsenal of modernism, advancing at the same time towards more contemporary ways of expression. The exhibition "Apparitions" in the Romanian Pavilion is conceived around two major themes: the studio, which is central to Bratescu’s career as an artist, and reflection on female subjectivity through various modes of conceptualizing the feminine. Our Tulip L track-mounted spotlights with 20-degree and 35-degree angle beams were equipped with ART special color to precisely highlight this wonderful and representative exhibition. ART special color enables the bright colors and the textures of the art works while staying true to their original shades, forms, and concepts, with an excellent color rendering (CRI 98). It simply offers the high-quality warm light for displaying very colorful exhibits.

The Dreaming

The Dreaming 2015 - was the first Romanian exhibition of Australian aboriginal art. Aboriginal art dates back 70.000 years ago, when people made transient art on tree bark, in sand or on stones. Only recently, they took to painting what is not technically art - but a very ancient way of life. Their paintings are extremely colorful, mesmerizing and each carry a story that was once part of their collective way of living: they paint about roads leading to water, they paint fish that is edible, they paint crops and they paint waterholes. Chase track lights equipped with ART special color brought all this beauty and bounty to life.
