Ioana Nemes (Bucharest, 1979–New York, 2011) is recognized as one of the remarkably figures of the new generation of Romanian contemporary artists. This publication offers a first overview upon the long-term projects and the singular exhibitions Nemeș has produced during her brief but extraordinary career. Fascinated with time, language and non-linear narrativity, Ioana Nemeș's practice sets off from an ongoing and unconstrained process of self-evaluation. On the slippery edge between art and life, the Monthly Evaluations project, realized in different formats and mediums, marks the artist's willingness to expose her subjective experiences, dialogues and confrontations with her own context and condition.
Nemeș's work has been exhibited internationally in museums and contemporary art centers such as Art in General, New York (2011), Secession, Vienna (2010), Istanbul Biennial (2009), Smart Project Space, Amsterdam (2009), U-Turn, Copenhagen (2008), Prague Biennial (2007), Bucharest Biennial (2006), Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel (2006). Her work continues today to be displayed part of international exhibitions group such as "A Few Grams of Red, Yellow and Blue", Centre for Contemporary Art, Ujazdowski Castle (2014), "Ritual Without Myth", Royal College of Art, London (2012), "Desire is War", Contemporary Art Gallery of the National Museum Brukenthal (2011), "Communism Never Happened" Char Gallery, Vienna (2011); or as solo exhibitions "Ioana Nemes, 'Monthly Evaluations" Eastside Projects Birmingham, UK (2014), "Ioana Nemes: Sometimes We should not pretend everything is OK", Salonul de proiecte / MNAC, Bucharest (2013). Nemeș was awarded with Future of Europe Art, Gallery Zeitgenössische fur Kunst, Leipzig in 2007.
