DECHKO UZUNOV. DIALOGUES IN THE STUDIO

Dechko Uzunov Art Gallery presents the exhibition Dechko Uzunov. Dialogues in the Studio. October 2021 – May 31 2022
For more than 10 years, the art studio of one of Bulgaria’s greatest artists and intellectuals, Dechko Uzunov, was not accessible to the public. There is already the opportunity to glimpse into the artist’s world and feel the atmosphere in which he created his art. Dechko Uzunov spent the last years of his life in his studio.
The theme of venues where Dechko Uzunov created his artworks is elaborated on in the exhibition Dechko Uzunov. Dialogues in Art presented at the gallery adjacent to the studio. Through the years, Uzunov’s teaching and diplomatic assignments turned this venue into a place where the artist managed to strike a balance between his personal space and social life.
Artworks presenting models at the studio reveal the many dialogues the artist had with himself and his students. Dialogues about the personal and the social, and, not less importantly, about art and reality.
This exhibition features works belonging to the permanent collections of Dechko Uzunov Art Gallery, Sofia City Art Gallery, Nikola Marinov Targoviste City Art Gallery, Kazanlak City Art Gallery and private collections.
Dechko Uzunov Art Gallery is located at 24 Dragan Tsankov Blvd, Sofia. Gallery hours: Wednesday-Sunday: 11 am – 7 pm. Free entrance.

“A world gone mad...”

Sofia City Art Gallery presents the exhibition “A world gone mad...” - 110 years since the declaration of the Balkan War and 140 years since the birth of Vladimir Dimitrov – Maystora.
The exhibition will run from February 22 till May 29, 2022. The story of the Balkan War is preserved thanks to archival and museum funds, documents, diaries, letters, photos, paintings, poems, books and periodicals, which recall the history and exploits of those generations of Bulgarians who sacrificed their lives in the name of national values, unity and a bright future. Many artists from different generations are either called upon or enlist as volunteers, inevitably linking not only their lives but their creative work with the Balkan War, as well as military art and the historical painting genre later on. Some of them are professors at the National Arts Academy or high school teachers, others have just completed their art degrees in Sofia and other European capitals, and the remainder are yet to pursue a degree.
Apart from paintings and graphics, sculptural works dedicated to the war can also be found. Young sculptors Ivan Lazarov, Angel Spasov, Anastas Dudulov and Yanko Pavlov are involved in the Balkan War, with Ivan Lazarov being the only one with a complete and consistent series of sculptures, namely They’ve Won, On a Knife Edge, At the Watering Hole, Superpowers and others. The National Museum of Military History’s funds have the richest collection of works by artists who participated in the wars. Some of Vladimir “The Master” Dimitrov’s war-related works are stored at the Kyustendil Art Gallery. The National Art Gallery’s collection also houses some of the best examples of military art. Works related to the Balkan War, albeit fewer in numbers, including singles, can be found around collections of art galleries in the country – Varna, Plovdiv, Ruse, Stara Zagora, Sliven, Kazanlak, Kardzhali, the State Archives Agency, and some in private collections. The project comes to fruition in partnership with The National Museum of Military History and Kyustendil’s Vladimir “The Master” Dimitrov Art Gallery. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog and a collection of documentaries owned by the Bulgarian National Film Library, the Bulgarian National Television, as well as Venelin Shurelov’s multimedia project Vladimir “The Master” Dimitrov: Light and Spirit, realized in 2014 as commissioned by the 13 Centuries of Bulgaria Fund.
The visits to “The war! A world gone mad...” exhibition will be fully compliant with all current anti-epidemic measures.
Sofia City Art Gallery is located in Sofia, on 1, Gen. Gurko Str.
