Until the end of November, visitors to the Bulgarian Cultural Institute in Paris will be able to see 30 lesser-known photographs, works of art and other exhibits from Christo Yavacheff’s early years.

The opening of the exhibition coincides with his last, posthumous project – L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped. The exposition at the Cultural Institute in Paris traces the professional road of the artist of Bulgarian descent, from the town where he was born, Gabrovo, to his first global successes, presenting intriguing details about the history of the Yavacheffs, from the earliest years of young Hristo, before he became Christo, and his first artistic endeavours. The exhibition offers a rare glimpse into his “Bulgarian period”, of which so little is known outside this country. The exposition is a joint initiative of the Museum of Humour and Satire in Gabrovo and the Bulgarian Cultural Institute in Paris, with the support of Gabrovo municipality and the Ministry of Culture.
