International Surrealism Now 2018 Art Exhibition in Coimbra, Portugal
The city of Coimbra opens its doors to International Surrealism Now 2018 Art Exhibition
The World's Largest 21st Century Surrealist Art Exhibition.
November 17, 2018 at Coimbra House Culture and Edifício Chiado Museum in Portugal.
International Surrealism Now is the largest international surrealist exhibition in the World, presenting 111 of the world’s leading surrealism artists from 48 countries. This ground breaking project is presented by Santiago Ribeiro, Portuguese surrealist painter, dedicated to promoting Surrealism of the 21st century, through exhibitions presented over the last 8 years in various parts of the world: Berlin, Moscow, Dallas, Los Angeles, Mississippi, Warsaw, Nantes, Paris, Florence, Madrid, Granada, Barcelona, Lisbon, Belgrade, Monte Negro, Romania, Japan, Taiwan and Brazil.
In an attempt to take art to the people en masse – and promote the largest group exhibit of surreal art this year -- Portuguese surrealist painter Santiago Ribeiro is teasing the public with flash images of his work in the most famous intersection of the world: Times Square.
The pieces are part of the International Surrealism Now exhibit, which is to open at the Coimbra House Culture and Chiado Museum in Portugal next November 17 of 2018. Billed as the largest world exhibition of contemporary Surrealism art in Europe – with more than 100 artists from about 50 countries participating – the exhibit of paintings, drawings, digital art, photographs and sculpture is also expected to be shown, at least in part, at several monuments and public spaces throughout Portugal.
“As always I´m doing something different and the idea to exhibit in Times Square in New York shows how the mass media are our modern means to show our art,” Ribeiro said.
Note: The renowned cultural magazine, The Culture Trip , named 10 Portuguese artists as the most internationally recognized at the present time and Santiago Ribeiro it is one of them.
Ribeiro's work has been featured at the U.S. Embassy in Lisbon , in the Portuguese American Journal , in Digital Meets Culture , Pressenza fr , metroNews.ru , Pravda in Portuguese , The Herald News , ARTVOICE , Associated Press , EFE , APA ots, AAP , Reuters , ANA , News Aktuell and many other publications can be seeing on the link.
