Reflecting Nedko Solakov’s collecting practice, this exhibition welcomes various artists to exhibit works in The Artist-Collector’s Dream (a nice thing), created by Nedko Solakov.
Solakov’s Some Nice Things to Enjoy While You Are Not Making a Living is at the heart of the exhibition; a multi-component installation that critiques the seemingly banal and mundane that we accept as truth. An artist known for his ironic, metaphoric and poly-semantic style that analyses the role and contradictions inherent to the contemporary art system and the truths and societal norms we all live by, Nedko Solakov presents The Artist-Collector’s Dream (a nice thing) in 2020, with works by artists from Galleria Continua’s repertoire and beyond.
