Dzhadzha is a collaboration between Open Arts Foundation, gallery Gallery and Sariev Gallery, in which we explore how contemporary electronic and digital art is created, sold, collected and preserved.
Through discussions, events, publications and exhibitions, we will explore these topics with artists, curators, collectors and, of course, the general audience. We will talk about contemporary developments in interactive digital art, net art and NFTs, in Bulgaria and abroad.
We will look at established best practices and local context, to try to understand how galleries, private collectors and institutions can better serve digitally-native art today and in the future.
Dzhadzha will start in June 2021.
