  • Geta Brătescu was born in Ploieşti, Romania, in 1926. From 1945 to 1949, she studied at the Faculty of Letters and Philosophy at the University of Bucharest under renowned Romanian literary critics, George Călinescu and Tudor Vianu, and at the Bucharest Academy of Fine Arts with painter and academic, Camil Ressu. In 1950 her studies were interrupted by the Communist government, and she was unable to complete her art education until 1971. Following her exclusion from university, Brătescu worked principally as an illustrator and graphic designer, and in the early 1960s became the artistic director of prestigious literary magazine, Secolul 20. Brătescu is recently the subject of numerous major solo museum surveys, including: ‘Geta Brătescu – Apariţii (Geta Brătescu – Apparitions)’ at La Biennale di Venezia, Romanian Pavilion, Venice, Italy; and ‘Geta Brătescu: An atelier of one’s own’, at Museum voor Schone Kunsten Gent, Ghent, Belgium, which toured from her exhibition ‘Geta Brătescu. The Studio: A Tireless, Ongoing Space’, at Camden Arts Centre London, England. Previous major solo museum exhibitions, both international and in her native Romania, include: ‘Geta Brătescu. Restrospective’ at the Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg (2016); ‘Geta Brătescu: Drawings with the Eyes Closed’ at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, St. Louis MO (2015); ‘Geta Brătescu / MATRIX 254’ at the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, Berkeley CA (2014); and ‘Geta Brătescu: The Artist’s Studios’ at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León, León (2013). She has also been included in signicant group exhibitions, such as ‘Geta Brătescu’, Documenta 14, Anthens, Greece, and Kassel, Germany (2017); ‘Construction to Transmission: Art in Eastern Europe and Latin America, 1960 – 1980’ at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2015); ‘Straight to Camera: Performance for Film’ at Modern Art Oxford (2014); and ‘A Bigger Splash: Painting After Performance Art’ at Tate, London (2012).
