Field Report: Pavlina Mladenova   04.08.14

The month of March was an intense period for SWAP resident artist Pavlina Mladenova, who is supported by the Cleveland Foundation's Creative Fusion program. During her first few weeks in Cleveland Pavlina adjusted to her new environment, visited local attractions that are of special relevance to her SPACES project.

She has visited many cultural sites and events, including a dance performance of Groundworks, a film debut at the Cleveland International Film Festival, the West Side Market, gallery hops and art walks all over town, and a field trip with the SPACES gang to see the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh.

Pavlina met with a group of students at SPACES through West Side Community House Sisterhood program, to offer a glimpse into the life of a working artist. She also gave a lecture on her work to students at the University of Akron and traveled to New York City with them, visiting several museums and meeting with organizations that promote Eastern European artists. All the while, Pavlina began work on her research project that will look at the interaction of Clevelanders with contemporary art, culminating in an exhibition at SPACES in May.
