"THE MEDAL - THIS IS ME" 15th INTERNATIONAL MEDALLIC PROJECT 2020 - Bulgaria
"THE MEDAL - THIS IS ME" because medals reflect
different aspects of our lives, our joys
and sorrows, dreams and disappointments. So the traditional ones for the project seven medal sessions have the following names:
1 MY HOME, 2 MY TEMPLE, 3 MY SCHOOL, 4 MY FAMILY, 5 MY REFUGE, 6 MY WAY
The annual medal project starts in 2006 and is held annually in the months of February, March, April, May, October, November and December. It is intended as a parallel curriculum for additional incentive for students from the medal Studio at the National Academy of Arts, but due to the great interest in the project, we invite colleagues from other countries as well as students from other educational institutions. This creative collaboration gives a unique opportunity for young medalists to get acquainted with different world trends, concepts and styles. For the past 14 years, 98 working sessions have been held at which about 3500 medals and medal objects were presented. At the end of each working session a virtual exhibition of all participants is organized with a poster catalog that can be viewed on several websites. At the Academy of Arts, we arrange one-day exhibition of works in material. These are monthly exhibitions are very attractive to young artists in their first steps in the art of the medal, and promote its popularization. Contributing to this is the regular participation of both established and young authors from different countries. The project participants have complete freedom to interpret the topics as well as to choose materials and techniques.
