CONTEMPORARY ART. 30 YEARS COLOUR AND LIGHT - invites 12 established Bulgarian artists, classmates from the studio of Acad. Svetlin Rusev, celebrating 30 years since the completion of the National Academy of Arts “Nikolai Pavlovich” in Sofia in 1991.
The authors mark an important moment in the development of Bulgarian art - the years of the Transition and form part of the identity of their time. Visual art challenges society to rethink its understanding of borders, identity, and nationality - topics that are relevant today in Europe and around the world.
The project follows the path of creative development and achievements of the 12 participants, four of whom live and work abroad, and shares practices and experience in the art market, participation in projects and initiatives in the country and abroad.
The symposium will meet the 12 authors in Plovdiv, between 06.09.2021 and 13.09.2021. Each artist will create 3 works of fine art in the format 100/100 cm, which will be shown in an exhibition on 13.09.2021 in the exhibition spaces and studios of TRAKART PARK, Plovdiv, and Trakart Cultural Center in Plovdiv. The filming of the creative process will be documented and presented at the joint exhibition.
