Roma art – self representation.

In what concerns the self-representation of the Roma in Romania there are three important moments: the inter-war period, when a Roma identity begun to be imagined, the 1970s when this identity is institutionalized and the period post 1990 when appear more clearly distinct Roma artistic voices. Contemporary Roma art appeared only in the 1980s, until then being rather an “art about the Gypsy”, in 1985 being organized the first world Roma art exhibition in Paris, and in 2007 was organized the first Roma art pavilion at the Venice Biennial and recently were created the European Roma Initiative and the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC).
