BFW puts women artists in focus at “Everything’s Right” exhibition
The exhibition “Everything’s Right” presents nine art projects, supported by the Foundation for Women’s Art Projects of the Bulgarian Fund for Women. They will be exhibited in three galleries in Sofia from March 11 to April 3, 2020. The opening will be in a long “opening night”, starting at 5:30 pm at the Institute of Contemporary Art – Sofia, from 7 pm in Credo Bonum Gallery and ending with a Campari glass at Doza Gallery from 8pm.
The projects of Albena Baeva, Alla Georgieva, Boryana Rossa, Veneta Androva, Nevena Ekimova, Darina Kokonova, Nikolina Nedyalkova and Daniela Takeva, Pavlina Serbova, Polina Stoyanova and Marion Durova were selected among 107 conceptual projects of over 100 authors and collectives.
The jury selection presents diverse perspectives on the role of women today in Bulgaria and in the world at large. The nine works deal with topics such as artificial intelligence, the image of women in Bulgarian cinema, the emotional, personal and social struggles of women, stereotypes related to family and role in society, and how they are reflected in different spheres of life and culture.
The diversity is not only in the interpretations, but also in the position from which the artists speak. The exhibition features well-known Bulgarian artists whose feminism is highly represented, such as Boryana Rossa, Alla Georgieva and Albena Baeva. The selection also moves the geographical center from Sofia to other cities in Bulgaria like Gabrovo and Yambol, as well as to other countries.
The exhibition aims to provoke reflection on what it is like to be a woman and an artist today. And after all, probably everything’s right? Or maybe not…
“Everything’s Right” is realized by the Bulgarian Fund for Women in partnership with the Institute of Contemporary Art – Sofia, Credo Bonum Gallery, Doza Gallery and the National Art Gallery. It is happening with the logistical support of Goethe-Institut Bulgaria and the taste of CAMPARI.
The Women’s Art Fund project was made possible by the trust and financial support of Power Pops, Takeaway, Mama Cash and Filia die Frauenstiftung.
