30 May – 15 September 2014 – The National Museum of Bulgarian Arts

The Metamorphoses Exhibition presents 80 sculptures by Auguste Rodin and 20 drawings of his from the collection of the Musée Rodin in Paris, displayed in Bulgaria for the first time. This project, initiated by Catherine Chevillot, Director of the Musée Rodin, 18 months ago, includes some of the most well-known and highly valued works of the “father of modern sculpture” as well as some relatively rare works, which have never been exhibited in front of the general public.

Divided in six separate sections, the exhibition allows us to cover Rodin’s overall work. The visitors will be able to see figures from “The Gates of Hell”, “Fragmentation of the Figures”, “Assemblages” and “Enlargements” – some key techniques in the artist’s approach. The role of the pedestal is also shown as a means of glorifying some of the sculptures; there are also drawings, which had a central role in Rodin’s creative process.

Stars in Venice, fotografia bianconerro – Sofia – Bulgaria

From April 22 to May 11th 2012 – National Gallery for Foreign Art
After the success of the Bulgarian Pavillion at the 54th Venice Biennale, Gershon Bulgaria is introducing a new exhibition project at the National Gallery for Foreign Art, Sofia. Stars in Venice presents 90 meticulously arranged photographic portraits from the immense collection of the Archivio Cameraphoto Epoche – a fascinating cross section of celebrities from all genres of art who visited the legendary Venice Film Festival and the Venice Biennale through the years of the second half of the previous century.

We are offering our guests the chance to admire, among others, photographs of Sophia Loren, Claudia Cardinale, Sean Connery, Paul Newman, of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall at the Portofino Cafe, of Mick Jagger enjoying a Gondola ride and Salvador Dali posing in front of memorable Venetian historic sites. The merit for the outstanding quality of the large format photo reproductions belongs to printer Vittorio Pavan, one of the founders of the Archivio Cameraphoto Epoche.
