    September 14, 2014, starting 7:00 PM - X Platform exhibition opening, the resulting work of the newest international art residency program for the research and production of interactive, new- and trans-media projects in Bucharest at WASP-Working Art Space and Production. 12 young artists from Bucharest, Timișoara, Amsterdam and London coming from various backgrounds (from architecture and painting to performance and programming) were selected upon a call for projects and had a month to explore and develop individual or group installations at WASP, in a mentorship regime, coordinated by Marilena Preda-Sânc, Ciprian Ciuclea, Jan Eugen and Cosmina Chițuc. The project was coordinated by Simona Deaconescu. While leaving the institutionalized world of art behind, the project is a manifest of creativity and innovation of the young generation. X Platform encourages the perspective of a space in permanent motion and transformation, while following the subject of re-imagining/reconfiguring the exhibition area within WASP. The eight exhibited projects in 2014 keep arousing curiosity, exploring the possibilities of perception, and creating a deliberate disorientation. Artists: 100ideas + Collective East (RO), Delia Andrieș (RO), Lola Bezemer (NL), Elena Copuzeanu & Emilian Săvescu (RO), Łucja Grodzicka (PL/UK), Oana Ionel (RO), Marius Jurca (RO) și Livia Mateiaș (RO). Media partners: Art Clue, Art Out, Ceașca de Cultură, Cooperativa Urbană, Designist, Feeder, Getlokal, Metropotam, Modernism, Orasulm.eu, Postmodern, Sub25, The Institute, Veioza Arte, WeArt, Zeppelin. X Platform is a cultural program in co-production between 4Culture, WASP — Working Art Space & Production, Tangaj Dance and LifeLongBurning, with the support of the Cultura 2007 — 2013 programme.
