Union of Bulgarian Artists / Exhibitions / ArchiveSecond Bulgarian Design Biennial - 2011

07.10.11 - 30.10.11 | Gallery of UBA "Shipka" 6, Sofia

Today, when for third week the creations of the Second Bulgarian Design Biennial are making the halls of the gallery of UBA full of people and attracting hundreds of enthusiastic admirers of the design art, we are ready to make the myth of “the Bulgarian design” as as. Prof. Vasil Stoyanov said a reality and tradition in the cultural life in the capital and the country. The works of 60 established artists in the field of the product and graphic design were situated on three floors such as twice more works of students from 6 universities and 3 art schools. 

The biennial was pursued by a rich program of accompanying events (parallel exhibition of the company “Roca”, international conference, creative and business meetings).

The biennial aims to show the situation of the Bulgarian design during the period 2008–2011. The event is also a review of the achievements of the big diversity of the “design professions”, a place for non commercial dialogue between the consumer and the product accessible the different kinds of public. The task of the biennial is to present creative and innovative designer solutions, to give them the possibility to easy travel their way from the studios to the production and the market. Through the exhibition we are trying to generate an organization and information structure for a common activity – a working group for creating a strategy for more useful introduction to the designers work.
