Exhibition Opening in Veliko Tarnovo

The New Heritage: Condition and Problems

The inaugural edition of the exhibition “The New Heritage: Condition and Problems” took place at the “Rafael Mihaylov” exhibition halls from July 14 to August 8, in Veliko Tarnovo, with the support of the Municipality of Veliko Tarnovo. The exhibition featured 20 panels showcasing examples of monumental facade art, including mosaic, sgraffito, metalwork, and ceramics from Burgas, Veliko Tarnovo, Plovdiv, and Sofia. The documentary photographs by the photographer Anton Chalakov not only highlighted the artistic value of the works but also focused on various structural damages, necessitating conservation interventions for their preservation and safeguarding. The exhibition is part of the project “New Heritage: approaches to conservation and dissemination of contemporary monumental facade art in Bulgaria” implemented with the financial support of the National Fund for Culture of Bulgaria.
