The Young Visual Artists Awards (YVAA) international network, which was established in 1990, is among the most sustainable programs promoting cultural exchange between the USA and Central and Eastern Europe.
They worked in different periods and created works that are part of the history of Bulgarian architecture. Through their work we can trace the architectural styles of the city - from neo-Byzantine, through secession, to modernism.
Among some of the most famous buildings by the three architects are the National Opera and Ballet, Lozenets Residence, the Central Sofia Market Hall, the Sofia Municipality Building at 33 Moskovska Street, Hemus Hotel, the National Assembly building (the former Party House), Georgi Asparuhov Stadium and others.
The exhibition Embroidery in the History of Zhenski Pazar Market will tell us about the importance of the sleeve in Bulgarian costumes. The 27 embroidered sleeves that will be shown are authentic samples from the beginning of the 20th century with approximate size of 30x52 cm and are presented in a frame.
The guests of the exhibition will be able to see a reproduction of Anton Mitov's painting "Market in Sofia" from 1899, provided by Sofia City Art Gallery, as well as documents about the trade at Zhenski Pazar Market. Art cards, part of Zdravko Petrov's personal collection of Historical Routes of Sofia, will also be presented.
Once again, the festival will also be presented at the National Gallery through a key exhibition, and for the first time it is at Kvadrat 500.
The exhibition Impulse and Light invites us to enter another reality – one that is quiet and is inspiring respect for those worlds that speak to us and bestow us with their might. Let’s not forget to look for light – this is the underlying message. SOFIA PAPER ART FEST is part of the Cultural Events Calendar of Sofia Municipality for 2020.
Intuitive, poetic, sincere - the photos from their fourth joint project tell the story of our strange present. A story of masks and appearances, freedom and restrictions.
The format of the portraits is intimate and accessible to the viewer. 26 moods, 26 states. The focus is on the expressive eyes of the girls in the photos . The choice of a mask, often playful and psychological, is a way of self-expression.
The photos capture the mood of a chaotic and, to put it mildly, atypical year. What happened to us during this time? Did it change us? How did we react?
According to the authors beauty lies precisely there - beyond the limits of not stopping to breathe and live freely. Somewhere there is the colorful beginning of our memories of tomorrow.
In case of unsuitable weather conditions, the concert will take place in Sofia Largo.
The concert is part of the Summer Cultural Events Calendar of Sofia Municipality.
