Summary/Abstract: The art critic is the one who assesses artworks that are exhibited in a gallery and acts as a guide for the inexperienced observer who thus sees how “beautiful” the art works are by virtue of certain details. But it is often the case that observers do not accept being told what “beautiful” means, despite having their ideas about art twisted and reordered. Contemporary Romanian artists see themselves as unique individuals with a unique sensibility, but what happens to their cultural identity given by the art critic, by other artists, by the public when gender aspects are taken into account?
