In 2010 the Institute of Contemporary Art-Sofia started the annual Christmas shows titled “Museum souvenirs from the none-existing museum of contemporary art”. The tradition goes on with a challenge to the artists to think about art and the gift at the same time; to create small, compact, attractive and accessible objects. To make art works that are souvenirs and souvenir that are art works. Or both in one whole. The main thing about such works is the GIFT.
The Gift is both the title and the theme of the Christmas show this year at the ICA-Sofia. There is a motto – “A Gift is a Gift only when it’s wrapped!” From December 17th to January 12th gifts will be wrapped, many gifts.
You are welcomed!
