Art Today Association



Art Positive is a project strongly influenced by the actuality of the time. Each year it introduces a topic through which artists can reflect and develop a work linked to fundamental questions of the present. Authors have complete freedom to express themselves through any media of contemporary art – video, installation, painting, photography, performance and more. As in a creative laboratory, they work separately and yet together, installing their works in the common space of the gallery, which contributes to their inspiration and experience enriching the overall artistic environment in the city of Plovdiv. This year, Art Positive, in addition to raising the theme of eco-sustainability, connection with the environment and conscious consumption, will carry out an exhibition that strives to be zero-waste, so all works will either be from organic or recycled materials (or up-cycle). In this way, besides reflecting the very need of humanity at the moment to “return” and integrate the natural way of thinking, it gives the opportunity to explore the different practices in art related to a more ecological and directional way of creation.

The artists in the exhibition are: Velina Hristova, Gergana Tabakova, Dorian Bolca, Du Xiaokun, Evgeni Mladenov, Evelina Nova, Emil Mirazchiev, Iva Vacheva, Ivan Ivanov, Nadia Genova, Osman Yuseinov, Raicho Stanev, Sarkis Nersesyan, Sevdalina Kochevska, Sonya Mitova, Harita Assumani, Tsvetanka Bornosuzova, Tsvetelina Angelova, Yavor Kostadinov.

The project is implemented with the support of the Municipality of Plovdiv and the Goethe-Institute

Media partners: BNT2, въпреки.com, Katra FM, Pod tepeto, Media Cafe, Kapana

Art Positive is a project of the Art Today Association, a member of the international network of German cultural societies abroad at the Goethe-Institut.

ataOpen call

Art Today Association invites artists working in the field of contemporary art in Plovdiv to take part in the RE-CONNECT 2023 residency program.
Plovdiv - Timisoara.

For detailed information on the program s regulations, as well as to apply for the program, email us at office@arttoday.org

The project has been realized with the financial support of the National Fund "Culture" under the program "Restoration and Development of Private Cultural Organizations".

RE:CONNECT gathers 9 artists from Plovdiv and 9 artists from Timi?oara to explore and illustrate through different techniques of contemporary art their interpretation of an event, place, history, impression or cultural heritage of the city in which they come from. “Urban Mythology” will create a collection of prisms for viewing and experiencing the two capitals of culture, denoting analogous or opposing trends in collective experience.

Mythology brings to life "psyche" - the Greek term for soul. It is a mediator from the private to the general perception of the world. In this way, myths describe unconscious processes at the individual and societal level. They connect our inner and outer worlds, through personification, moving us from the conceptual to the experiential. With their metaphorical meaning, myths are like invisible influences that both shape us and recreate the cyclicality and transience of being. Myths are an internal chronicle of who we are. They can be intimate truths that are best understood when born into stories.

The modern urban topos provides an opportunity to study various historical, political, social and individual phenomena. Each city contains and gives life to a complex system of narratives, legends and stories that reflect the structures of the collective unconscious. Can modern life illuminate new horizons through the urban stories it tells? What stories are going around town? What is the modern mythology of the urban?
