The IBG is under the patronage of the President of the Republic of Bulgaria, Mr. Rumen Radev.

The mission of the 2019 Edition of the International Biennale of Glass focuses on supporting the continuity between generations, allowing emerging artists to present their ideas alongside internationally established authors. In this year’s edition of IBG, we have the great pleasure of presenting works by world artists such as Lino Tagliapietra /Italy/, Marvin Lipofsky /USA/, Jiří Šuhájek /Czech Republic/ and Václav Cigler /Czech Republic/. All of them can be seen in the main opening exhibition of the Biennale on October 4, 2019 at the National Art Gallery, Sofia (The Palace building).
