Sofia Situation

Positions of contemporary artists from Bulgaria
11-30 January 2016

Opening - January 11 (Monday), 18:00
Academia Gallery, Shipka Street 1

In 2015, eight artists showed at the Goethe-Institut their new works created especially for the exhibition, which give an idea of the actual work and the current situation of contemporary art in Sofia. Of course, these are subjective snapshots. However, if carefully selected exhibitions of different artists are displayed during a certain period of time they - as curators hope - despite its inconsistency and heterogeneity will reveal clear trends and expand space for future analyzes of artistic and societal challenges. In 2015, were shown works by Peter Tzanev, Kamen Starchev, Lyudmil Lazarov, Alla Georgieva and Alexander Valchev. University professors Ivan Kjuranov (NAA), Venelin Shurelov (NAA) and Nelly Miteva offered works by their students, but the bottom line will be drawn by the group exhibition of all participating artists, which will be presented from 11 to 30 January in the Academia Gallery of the National Academy of Art.
