Very Important Chair is a collective itinerant project initiated and curated by Alexandru Popovici. It is about a chair seat with a specific history that is multiplied and offered to various artists to be personalized. The chair's prototype has been recovered from the debris of the abandoned Simerom factory building in Sibiu, Romania. The last V.I.C. show was hosted at Baril Gallery in Cluj, Romania.
"En rÃ©action au communisme, au fascisme, Ã la croissance dÃ©mentielle, Ã lâ€™oubli de lâ€™homme, le projet V.I.C. (Very Important Chair) a lâ€™ambition de rÃ©unir quelques 2200 artistes et intellectuels internationaux, invitÃ©s Ã imaginer un avatar personnalisÃ© du tabouret V.I.C. pour manifester en faveur de la dignitÃ©, la diversitÃ©, lâ€™identitÃ© et la libertÃ©."
