Artist Santiago Ribeiro the
curator of the very successful “Surrealism Now” exhibition in Coimbria,
Portugal, in collaboration with Liba Waring Stambollion
have organised a quality exhibition in the heart of Paris at Dorothy’s Gallery, the American Center for the
Arts. The exhibition brings together artists from diverse countries, such as
France, Portugal, Russia, United States, Czech Republic, Vietnam and Latvia.
“Surrealism, which was born after the first wold war, is characterized by
its opposition to all social conventions, moral and logic. It is a movement
immersed in dreams, instinct, desire, rebellion, and the liberty of life. It is
also perhaps the movement most tied to imagination, a movement fully alive in
the artistic and literary worlds. In Portugal, it is perhaps the link which ties
these two worlds together. Prof. Perfecto Cuadrado said so aptly in one of his
conferences: “The history of Surrealism, meaning anthologies, studies,
catalogues (and exhibits) devoted to the so called International surrealism,
needs to be divulged – the price, sometimes, in a simplified fight against other
forms of simplification, when it is not against a total silence due to
sectarianism, or ignorance whether French, Portuguese or International.”
Surrealism through words, painting and sculpture continues, like life to be:
insistent, concrete, daily and real. This exhibition in Paris, the birthplace of
the movement, is proof that “International Surrealism” is still alive.”

We are currently rebuilding our website with a new theme - so temporarily this site is functional, but a construction zone.
Headers, background and certain special new functions will be built in, respectively changed. Additionally, most Slide Shows used to be embedded from our Private Social Network on Ning. Since Ning discontinued Flash some time ago, the space where the embedded slide shows supposed to be is blank!
We are working to fix this as well, but with over 500 pages for artists alone, this will take time.
