The longest surviving forum of contemporary art in Bulgaria opens on 1 September in the quaint surroundings of Plovdiv’s Old Town. The story goes back to 1967 when Alexander Krustev, better known as Nacho Kulturata (Culture) for all of his efforts towards making his town a hub of culture, put on display, in the courtyard of his own house, water colours by Georgi Bozhilov-Slona. Since then, every year, artists in the classical genres – painting, graphic arts, sculpture, ceramics, drawing – have been presenting to the public individual exhibitions of their works.

The exhibitions feature works by master portrait painter Bogdan Alexandrov, young painter Sevket Sonmez, who lives in Plovdiv and in Istanbul, graphic artist from Plovdiv Monika Romenska, photographer Daniel Lekov, also a graphic artist, Kaloyan Iliev-Kokimoto, an established name in conceptual painting, sculptors Martian Tabakov and Martin Trifonov etc. As ever, their works will be on show at the Balabanov House, the Hinlyan House and at the Mexican Art House in Plovdiv’s Old Town.
