Background: Young Artists from Plovdiv
‘Background: Young Artists’ is a long-standing platform of the ‘SARIEV Contemporary’ Gallery, presenting young artists and curators in the field of contemporary art. In 2019 there will be a special edition ‘Background: Young Artists from Plovdiv’, which will present a concourse exhibition with works of the youngest generation of Plovdiv artists.
The exhibition will take place in June - August 2019 and will be joined by an accompanying programme - two formats, successfully launched in 2016 - ‘Portfolio day’ (young artists under 35, selected after open invitation, individual consultations from a professional committee of leading curators, artists and gallerists) and ‘15 Minutes of Fame’ (a presentation format in which young artists present their work to an audience in a scenario and drama event involving music and performance interludes).
So far the platform is participated in by Kiril Kuzmanov and Svetoslav Michev (2010), Lubri (2011), Zoran Georgiev (2012), Daniela Georgieva (2013), Dimitar Solakov (2014), Martina Vacheva (2016), Eli Zhoteva and Zlatimir Arakliev (2018), in the publication Background: Young Artists from Plovdiv in Helsinki - Valko Chobanov, Martina Vacheva, Dimitar Shopov, 2018.
