Exhibition: Surrealism Now!

It has risen from the crypt of art history, the only art movement relevant to our tortured times. Surrealism’s rank perfume permeates the galleries, the cinemas and the streets. Surrealism Now!is a sinister cabaret, full of dreamers with eyes closed, sitting at the same table as insomniacs with nightmares. Those artists that heard the siren song of Surrealism emanating from the angel trumpets of despair, indulged our insatiable desire for a gesture of defiance against everything that’s false and stupid. Surrealism Now! carries the torch for mad love, psychedelic art, crazed science, Medievalism, Romanticism, Victoriana, Punk, the uncanny, the grotesque, obsolete technology, and the eternal clash of the sacred with the profane. Robert Mintz

Juror: Andi Campognone is the Director of the MOAH, Museum of Art and History, Lancaster, CA
