Ivan Georgiev - Rembrandt 1938-1994 retrospective exhibition
04 April 2008 - 28 April 2008
Ivan Georgiev has never exhibited his works at an exhibition nor has he sold pictures. Once he presented his works (probably for the 1966 General Art Exhibition) and got snubbed, he vowed he would never again submit his pictures to be judged by a panel of authorities. He chose to go underground and to benefit from his freedom in endless poverty.

The Sailboats series was created in the last two years. It is a logical sequel to the Nets and Pairs series where shapes rise and extend in space, allowing the latter to flow into them. As in Nets and Pairs, shapes in Sailboats extend outward, as though a centrifugal force were acting.

14 December 2007 - 27 January 2008
The exhibition is featuring work from Bulgarian-born artists who do not live in Bulgaria. It is intriguing as it provides insight into the type of art they make in view of the specifics of the contemporary art scene in the countries they live in and the networks within which they work. The exhibition focuses on artists themselves – on the position they have chosen and the way they define where they stand with respect to the world and the general art scene which is turning more and more into a medium for negotiations and various social contracts as a result of the ongoing globalization processes. And the latter involve economic, cultural and political positions and interests. Contemporary artists participate in those negotiations defining their own position in the world. And this position is reflected by the variety of cultural hybrids in between the extremities of local and global without being that much influenced by the already outdated notions of traditional cultural or national identity.
