Sarieva / Hub Newsletter combines the latest news about Sarieva Gallery, artnewscafe, Open Arts Foundation, Кабинѐт Art Advisory. This month’s issue presents Luchezar Boyadjiev’s project Christo for Beginners and his upcoming exhibition at Sarieva/Gallery. Pravdoliub Ivanov shares more about his recent work and we explore ICA’s participation at Manifesta 14. Exhibition views from Dimiter Genchev’s Light and Dust exhibition are complimented by a few words from the artist.

Upcoming project

New available works

My simple ideas intersect everyday life and fantasy, but I try to create works that do not belong either. I try to do art as a desperate attempt to explain the world to myself, constantly engaging my fears and hopes.

Since 24.03.2022, I couldn't do anything, and my mind exploded from what had happened to Ukraine, a country only 147 km far from Bulgaria. So, I decided to grasp the hope, but that is the only drawing I have done since then.
