Bologna is a city with many names. First, there is 'la dotta' (or 'the learned one') in honour of its university, the oldest in the western world (established in the 11th century), which counts Petrarch, Copernicus, Dante and, more recently, the cult (and controversial) Bologna-born filmmaker, Pier Paolo Pasolini, among its alumni. Its second...
Going through Cory Arcangel's website feels like riding across waves of digital archaeologies, where things endlessly fold and unfold. The site meticulously presents every aspect of Arcangel's practice, including detailed information about exhibitions and artworks for which the artist has become known. These include his 'game modifications' (or...
Now in its fifteenth year, Zona Maco México Arte Contemporáneo (7–11 February 2018) is rightly regarded as one of the more important events on the international art fair circuit.

Since 2011 Sariev Contemporary has built a representative list of Bulgarian-born artists and committed itself to promoting Bulgarian contemporary art internationally and locally through establishing a new model for a contemporary art gallery in the country.
The gallery features mainly solo exhibitions centered around a clearly expressed concept by an artist and/or curator, developed especially for Sariev Contemporary. Our artists are internationally recognized, with crucial contributions to the art of the transitional 1980’s and 90’s, as well as young artists at the beginning of their career. We annually organize a Background: Young Artists exhibition.
Throughout the years Sariev Contemporary has collaborated with numerous curators, including: Iara Boubnova, Jacob Racek, Svetlana Kuyumdzieva, Vera Mlechevska, Vessela Nozharova, Vladia Mihaylova, Maria Vassileva and recently Walter Seidl and Bettina Steinbrugge.
In addition to publishing artists' and exhibition catalogues and booklets, we’ve also commissioned the first bilingual history of Bulgarian contemporary art by art historian Vessela Nozharova (due 2017).
The need for creating a context and knowledge of contemporary art in Bulgaria has motivated us to develop two para-platforms in partnership with curators and art critics: the annual educational course Introduction to Contemporary Art and the Collectors’ Forum, whose first edition was in 2011.
Our artnewscafe, which runs its own cultural program of exhibitions, screenings and talks, some of which co-organised with Sariev Contemporary, is right next to the Sariev exhibition space. The café is subscribed to international art magazines and maintains a small library of art and design publications, with a selection of books, catalogues and zines for sale.
