Exhibition of the BAZA Award for contemporary art nominees: Kiril Kuzmanov, Kosta Tonev, Leda Ekimova, Maximilian Pramatarov, Pavel Lefterov, Zoran Georgiev
26 June 2012 - 22 July 2012
The exhibition marks the fifth release of the BAZA Award for contemporary art. It was established in 2008 on the initiative of the Institute of Contemporary Art – Sofia and exists as a part of an international awards network for young artists based in New York City. Following the tradition, the exhibition of the nominees is realised with the cooperation of the SofiaCity Art Gallery and in one of its halls. The Award is unique for Bulgaria and comprises a six-week residency at the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP), New York City, and a solo exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) gallery in Sofia. The first four BAZA award winners are: Rada Boukova (2008), Samuil Stoyanov (2009), Anton Terziev (2010) and Vikenti Komitski (2011). Their experience from the residence in New York City already proved the efficiency of such awarding format because of the widening of the professional and fellow contacts, the invitations for participation in exhibitions in different countries as well as the knowledge gathered through the observation of the New York City art scene.
