GATEWAY I – interior view: RASSIM® (painting), Stefano Cagol (video), Roi Vaara. (video)

The concept of the first exhibition was inspired by Raul Zamudio (US), a New York-based independent curator, art critic, art historian and educator.

“Gateway, Host; two words that aptly describe the debut of such an important exhibition and Sofia’s newest contemporary art space. The artists selected individually articulate notions of a gateway in their works yet coalesce collectively in exploring its multiple connotations not limited to a mediating threshold that opens to all that is inclusive, empowering, and affirmative. HOSTGALLERY asked me to suggest an artist who could capture well this idea, and with that in mind Host and I selected the enigmatic performance piece by Roi Vaara created in freezing temperatures titled Artist’s Dilemma.”.
