An Exhibition in the Frame of the Project ArtUP!

The exhibition PARABOLE presents 15 artists from Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey with their selected artworks in several exhibitions in Bulgaria and in an online exhibition on the virtual exhibition space ArtUP!. In this group exhibition, media artists from the three countries explore new local urban legends, intending to provide a wider critical reflection on the past, to depict the current period of mobility, migration and crisis as well as to examine the future perspectives in the region.
