Portfolio Day 2018

Portfolio Day's second installment was iniciated by SARIEV Contemporary for supporting young artists which started in 2016 in the framework of the project Background: Young Artists.

Portfolio Day 
Young authors meet art experts

Visual and performance artists can participate in an open call and submit a portfolio. A professional jury selects artists to participate in the Portfolio Day. The participants have individual consultations with the jury members - established artists, curators and gallerists who give them feedback to their portfolio and advises how to develop their career and artistic practice. The goal is to help young artists to learn how to present themselves and their work, how to communicate with curators and gallerists and to introduce them to art professionals. 

The 2018 edition took place in Sofia and brought together seven young artists with well-known professionals from the Bulgarian art scene. The expert jury, which selected the participants and then held personal consultations with them, included Luchezar Boyadjiev, Vera Mlechevska, Vessela Nozharova, Svetoslav Todorov, Vesselina Sarieva and Katrin Sarieva.
