Galeria Plan B opened in 2005 in Cluj, Romania, initiated by Mihai Pop and Adrian Ghenie and functions as a production and exhibition space for contemporary art; at the same time it is a research center focusing on the Romanian art of the last 50 years, by revealing works of remarkable artists without previous international exposure.
In 2008 Plan B opened a permanent exhibition space in Berlin and is coordinated since then by Mihai Pop and Mihaela Lutea.
In 2009 Plan B was one of the initiators of the project Fabrica de Pensule / The Paintbrush Factory in Cluj, a collective independent cultural center, converted from the old paintbrush factory and hosting now about five art galleries and thirty artist studios. Plan B Cluj is undertaking a process of redefining itself towards a documentation center hosting an archive of the Romanian art from the last decades and a program of research and artist talks addressed especially to young scholars and art students.
Outside the framework of the gallery program, Mihai Pop co-curated several group exhibitions in the context of the Prague Biennale 4, a section of the exhibition Romanian Cultural Resolution at Spinnerei Leipzig and Club Electroputere Craiova, and Mircea Pinte Collection at the Museum of Art Cluj. In 2007 Plan B was the organizer of the Romanian Pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennale, curated by Mihnea Mircan and including the artists Victor Man, Cristi Pogacean, Mona Vatamanu & Florin Tudor, Christoph Büchel & Giovanni Carmine.
Mihai Pop was the curator of the Romanian Pavilion at the 56nd Venice Biennale in 2015, artist Adrian Ghenie.
