Art exhibition by father and daughter

Posted on September 20, 2012


This October, Bulgarian sculptor Ivan Minekov and his London-based daughter, Paola, join forces in a new exhibition. Both artists have used dance as a subject.

Hosted by the Cultural Institute at the Bulgarian embassy, the exhibition Power and Passion includes Ivan Minekov’s statuette Ballerina alongside sculptures on mythological subjects. It will also include paintings by Paola Minekov’s Dancers series. The exhibition will be held at the Sofia Gallery, Bulgarian Cultural Institute, 188 Queen’s Gate, London SW7 from October 2 to 16.
