Identity Between Symbolics and Colours

March 20th – April 14th 2018
Opening - March 20th 2018 (Tuesday), 6 p.m.
Academia Gallery, 1 Shipka St.
On initiative of the Italian cultural institute in Bulgaria, the National Academy of Art in Sofia and the Accademia di Brera in Milan present an exhibition devoted to the interpretation of colours of the national flags of the two countries. This joint project is implemented during the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU, and the works are exposed from March 20th till April 14th 2018 in the Academia Gallery (the Gallery of the National Academy of Art). Thus, under the sign of the white-green-red colours, teachers and students from both academia create a provoking symbiosis between the mental trajectories of the national idea and the infinitely complex and varied fields of contemporary art.
The exposition includes artworks of 30 painters from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera (Milan) and 22 teachers and students from the National Academy of Art in Sofia.
