For the sixth consecutive year, Credo Bonum Gallery and Goethe-Institut Bulgaria are joining forces to present some of the most interesting new names on the contemporary art scene in Bulgaria.
Every year, the exhibition seeks new approaches in the search and presentation of young authors – be it with additions to the curatorial team or with a thematic framework. This year, curators Vessela Nozharova and Stefka Tsaneva turned to teachers, gallery owners, collectors and cultural managers to suggest names they follow. The nominations of Radostin Sedevchev, Rositsa Getsova, Galin Popov, Rosen Uzunov, Ina Valentinova, Monika Popova, Nikola Mihov, Nikolay Nedelchev and Irena Gergova complemented this year’s selection of 11 young authors. Among them are artists living in Sofia, Varna and Plovdiv, London, Prague and Munster. The techniques they work with are also diverse – in the exhibition, you will see paintings, photography, installation, digital and light objects.
The exhibition will open on 9 March at both locations and can be seen until 1 April.
Working hours Credo Bonum (2 Slavyanska Str.): Mon-Sun 11: 00-19: 00
