Summary/Abstract: The Exhibition Association of New Artists (1931-1944). 80th Anniversary of the Establishment at the Sofia art Gallery is a good occasion to present a different, new view on the activities of the association. It offers a chance to discuss important questions connected with the development of Bulgarian art during the 20th century. Its realization has one main aim: to reveal as much as possible the art of the News, to recreate the creative work of the association. This great exhibition includes over 500 paintings, sculptures and graphics by 66 authors. Along with the well known and popular works by authors, such as Boris angelushev, Kiril Tzonev, Bencho Obreshkov, Nikolai shmirgela, Vaska Emanuilova, ivan Nenov and many others – authors that have become emblematic for the association the curators also present a number of unknown and unpublished works, property of many private col- lectors. such are the exhibited works by Eliezer alsheh, Todorka Burova, Kocho Garnev, Bronka Gjurova, Boris Kolev, Preslav Karshovski, Georgi Pavlov-Pavleto, David Perez, etc. in contrast to the retrospective exhibition of 1981 this exposition directs the attention of the audience in two directions – artistic and documentary. The presented documents – photographs, letters, newspapers and journals with review materials from the time of the existence of the association offer a possibility to the audience to get the flavor of the age of the News.
