Especially for the UniCredit Studio opening in Bulgaria, there arrived also Jean-Claude Mosconi, Arts and Culture Projects Manager at UniCredit, who shared that he is very impressed by the work of the Bulgarian artists engaged in the field of contemporary art. „Namely the qualities of the Bulgarian artists made us choose Bulgaria for a pilot project, after Italy, for developing the idea for UniCredit Studio. Such exhibition spaces are about to open doors also in other countries such as Turkey, Hungary and Russia“, explained Mosconi.

The first exhibition at UniCredit Studio "Bank of the Future“ with curator Vera Mlechevska has put together the works of four young artists – Bora Petkova and Stanimir Genov from Bulgaria, Agnieszka Kurant (Poland) and Keijiro Suzuki (Japan).
