To collect contemporary art: Unveiling New Perspectives

“For the collector of "old" art, most choices have already been made. For the contemporary art collector, they are forthcoming, they are his - difficult, problematic, sometimes false or wrong. He is a traveler into the future, where everything is still only possible.”

Driven by the idea that contemporary art can create a space in our lives to better situate ourselves and our place in the world and believing that art is accessible to all as a necessary part of our living space and lifestyle, our team laid the foundations of the project To Collect Contemporary Art.

Through various partnerships, curatorial choices of authors, topics, works, special events and publications in the field of contemporary art and culture, the platform aims to present in different parts of Bulgaria and the world, as well as in the digital space, trends and ideas about art , which best fit the definition of “contemporary”. Its mission is to unite and include more and more circles of art lovers, as well as to participate in the process of education and development of the public and ultimately to create avid collectors.

Current project

In the beginning of June 2024, and continuing annually, a new land art installation emerges, breathing new life into the landscape. This yearly evolution mirrors the island’s natural rhythm and the dynamic nature of contemporary art. ‘Limnos Land Art’ is an immersive project that transforms the landscape in front of Keros Blue Hotel in Limnos, Greece, into an evolving gallery of land art installations. Each year, ‘To Collect Contemporary Art” team will carefully sculpt the land to reveal new perspectives and narratives.

For its inaugural installation, we are proud to present Kalina Dimitrova’s ‘Tumbleweed.”



The "Inhabitants" sculptures by Martian Tabakov were photographed by the +359 Gallery team at several sites developed under the Operational Program "Environment 2014-2020". These sites are often located on the outskirts of populated areas or remain hidden below the surface of our daily lives and the surrounding infrastructure. Despite their obscurity, they hold great importance to our existence as a society that is concerned with its future and bears responsibility for the environmental footprint it leaves for future generations.

Discover contemporary art with GTC

We envision a dynamic collaboration between GTC and “To collect contemporary art” platform to host contemporary art event that celebrate creativity, innovation, and cultural exchange.

The event will showcase a curated selection of artworks by emerging and established Bulgarian and international artists, representing diverse artistic disciplines and perspectives in the sleek and modern setting of the common areas at the Advance Business Center.


Similar to how St. Oswald Golf Course is embedded in the natural form of the area, we aim to blend the nature, the game and the contemporary art in a new type of event.

That’s why we selected more than ten artists with their unique artworks, suitable for outdoor display, transforming the ordinary game experience into an exciting art event. Expected to run until the end of September 2022, the exhibition is a perfect complement to golf and also an excellent alternative activity for families looking to spend a few hours away from home.

+359 Gallery was founded in 2017 in the building of a preserved water tower in the “Lozenets” district of Sofia, Bulgaria where eight site-specific exhibitions are organized annually.

Collect Gallery was founded in 2022, and produces projects that bring together artists, works, and ideas that meet the definition of “contemporary” at its venue in Istanbul, Türkiye. Despite its specific geographical location, the gallery produces content internationally.

Charta Gallery, founded in early 2022, is located in the heart of Sofia city. Charta’s exhibition plan aims to present a permanent display of both classical and contemporary art, and at the same time, be engaged in the field of art publishing.
