Launched in January 2010 "Project 1990" marks a series of events aiming to place contemporary art works in the Free Press Square from Bucharest which had been an empty abandoned space for 20 years.
In 1960 a six meter high statue of Lenin by Boris Caragea was placed in the Free Press Square from Bucharest. After the 1989 Romanian Revolution, Lenin's statue was removed (in January 1990) and moved to different locations around the city of Bucharest. The statue plinth remained empty until Ciocan transformed it into a temporary exhibit space in January 2010.
So far”Project 1990” included nineteen contemporary artists.
