Union of Bulgarian Artists exhibitions / archive
Opening - 14th of December, 6 p.m.
In this exhibition participate about 40 authors - the textile artists and artists from other disciplines using textile materials and techniques, as well as guests from Germany, Serbia, Slovenia and Canada.
The fabric as a material with specific and unique capabilities take part more widely in contemporary art. Authors such as Michelangelo Pistoleto, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Christian Boltanski, Christo and many others use textile and textile products burdening them with diverse sense and assign them multiple tasks.
Opening - 12th of November, 6 p.m.
In connection with the international Bulgarian-Polish project "Archaeology and Contemporary Textile Art" on 11.12.2015 at 18.00 in the gallery of the Union of Bulgarian Artists at Shipka 6 Str. will open a Bulgarian-Polish student exhibition named "Connection". The participants in the project are from specialty "Textiles - art and design" at the National Art Academy in Sofia, Academy of Fine Arts Stzheminski, Technical University and the Central Museum of textile art, Lodz, Poland.
Opening - 16th of July, 6 p.m.
The exhibition is traditionally organized by the "Textiles" department at the UBA and it is open to all colleagues who use textiles or any of techniques in their art.
The authors participating in this year's exhibition use in the textile in their works in a variety of ways: as a basic material for the construction of the work or as a complement to the work. We see it on the picture (silk, canvas), in collages, as a material for sculpture, clothing, woven panel and others.
The idea of the organizers of the exhibition is to demonstrate a high level of art works made from used textiles. Almost all the authors have sometimes worked with such kind of materials and they know well what surprises they hide.
It could be contend that for a long period Kamburova set the standards of the intellectual dress - not coincidentally her dresses and blouses were sought and bought especially by writers, actresses, intellectuals, and some found in them inspiration for their own creative work.
The works of artists who are engaged in textile art in the 21st century are unlike anything known from classic textile art. Today we can see fabric made of corrugated cardboard, paper clips, nylon thread, barbed-wire, sewn paper, woven into the fabric LEDs.
The interaction between the museum and the contemporary art and the dialogue between the museum and exhibit works of contemporary artist provoke the idea of this exhibition at the Art Gallery National Palace of Culture.
