The White Night of the Art Galleries was the first night cultural event in Romania after the White Night of the Museums, and the first event in the country to raise the attention of the general public regarding contemporary art and young artists, proposing a complex and dynamic programme to feature all types of art – painting, drawing, sculpture, graphics or new media, photography, video, performance, music, dance, theatre, design, etc.
Throughout the ten editions held until now, the White Night of the Art Galleries established a platform to promote contemporary art and young Romanian artists by encouraging the contact between artists and galleries or other contemporary art spaces, and by introducing the artists to an extended
audience that has the opportunity to discover each year the art of its own generation. Since 2016 The White Night of the Art Galleries takes place in Timișoara alongside other ten cities: București, Arad, Baia Mare, Brașov, Cluj Napoca, Craiova, Iași, Sibiu și Târgu Mureș.
