virus virus ! Bertran Berrenger, Ltitia Carton, Baptiste Debombourg, Gerome Nox, Anne-Marie Rognon, Lionel Sabatt
05 April 2006 - 16 April 2006
Virus, virus! Doesn’t that sound like а samba tune? Swaying and dancing rhythmically. It is spreading like the virus of the day carried by the chicken, ducks, swans and all those migrant birds that set off from China, stop in Turkey, fly over Romania, Africa and France to reach the North and then fly back. Less lethal but equally pervasive like those small bombs called H5N1 which we don’t know how to stop and which are transported by air and disperse like pollen. We are living in the “information” age. Information that allows for a great amount of disinformation. Ever so permeating. This is it – virus.

ACTION: CONTEMPORARY ART Sasho Stoitzov. Waterfall
11 March 2006 - 01 April 2006
The aim of “Action: Contemporary Art” is to enrich the “Contemporary Art and Photography” collection of Sofia Art Gallery and to stimulate the most innovative trends in Bulgarian art. It is the gallery staff’s deep conviction that the mission of the museum is to follow, choose and preserve the best examples of both the past and present art history. The absence of a Museum of contemporary art makes this function even more necessary under the existing circumstances. For more than 20 years several generations of artists have been working in the field of the modern means of expression without their works being placed in museum collections. This disconcerting fact makes us undertake more active steps towards the preservation of this particular art.
Sofia Art Gallery and the 8th of March Group present: REFLECTIONS MULTIPLIED Adelina Popnedeleva, Alla Georgieva, Anna Hen-Yossifova, Elena Karamihailova, Elisaveta Konsoulova-Vazova, Princess Evdokia, Mariela Gemisheva, Nadezhda Oleg Lyahova, Nevena Gancheva, Nina Kovacheva, Silvia Lazarova, Todorka Bourova, Tzana Ivanova-Boyadjieva, Vera Ivanova
08 March 2006 - 07 April 2006
The exhibition is a try at a mirror reconsideration of history. It is a “tête-à-tête”” of two generations of lady artists: the first “bunch” of graduates from art academies in Bulgaria who advocated the right of the “fair sex” to deal seriously with art, and artists who in late 20th century understood art as an avenue to convey messages and to provoke public opinion.
