THE PANOPLY OF THE THRACIAN WARRIORS presents the development of the weaponry, warfare and the technological craftsmanship of Ancient Thrace. The exposition offers an analysis of the processes and mechanisms through which main shapes of Hellenic armament were adopted, as well as the typology and technology of these artifacts not only in Thrace, but in the Classical world in general.

LILYANA ROUSSEVA (1932 – 2009) | Retrospective Exhibition

Opening on Tuesday, 18 October, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Lilyana Rousseva’s name is well known to those who were participants in or followed the development of the visual arts in Bulgaria in the second half of the 20th century. The artist’s work inarguably represents a significant share of the leading directions and trends in the art of that time, both in its appearance and character. The current exhibition on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the artist’s birth is an opportunity not only to touch her world in paintings, watercolours, and drawings once again, but also to understand and experience them in a new light, more fully and overall in terms of her undisputed contribution to our artistic culture.
In the world the artist built, we will not encounter conflicts or contradictions, existential dramas or the self-centred self-disclosure of the artist’s Ego so common in the world of the contemporary artist. Nor will we find signs of forced and domineering expression emphasizing the subjective beginning. Quite the contrary – Lilyana Rousseva’s ethical attitude implies a reduction of the self and a quiet, unobtrusive reverence for the enigma of the other and “the courage of the artist to protect the liberated intimacy of the female personality” (Kiril Krastev).
Through landscapes, portraits, self-portraits, still lifes, figural compositions, and nudes, an attempt has been made to encompass the entire genre and thematic variety of Lilyana Rousseva’s paintings. Included are paintings and drawings from the inventory of the National Gallery, the Sofia City Art Gallery, the art galleries in Pleven, Gabrovo, Kyustendil, Plovdiv, Ruse, Varna, Lovech, Sliven, and Smolyan, from her heirs and from private collectors. The exhibition is accompanied by a publication with texts by Prof. Chavdar Popov and Ivo Milev. It has been realized through the financial support of the Ministry of Culture.
The curator is Ivo Milev, with his assistant, Dr. Tanya Staneva.

YONA TUKUSER | HUNGER

In an interdisciplinary project, the artist Yona Tukuser, who works in the style of Metamodernism, interprets in her paintings the tragic consequences of hunger in the 20th century, while casting a troubled look at the present in the context of Russia’s war against Ukraine.
Yona Tukuser was born in 1986 to Bulgarian parents, in the village of Glavan in Ukraine, some 70 km from the Danube Delta. She is a descendant of a family that emigrated in 1832 from Glavan, Galabovo municipality, Stara Zagora district, Bulgaria.
For 13 years, the artist collected historical evidence of the famines in Ukraine and the Soviet Union in the periods 1921–23, 1932–33 and 1946–47, adopting an academic approach to the selection of archival sources of information.
Her personal interviews with people who survived the famine, quotations from which the exhibition’s visitors will have the opportunity to read, are particularly emotive. ‘The “Hunger” project reveals that the contemporary world has become hostage to the unpunished crimes of Soviet totalitarianism and, in particular, to the repressive, anti-peasant actions that contributed to the mass starvation of the population. Philosopher George Santayana’s aphorism that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it, should sound like an alarm, the power of which will be amplified by the historical paintings that are part of the project,’ commented Yona Tukuser.
