From March 17th to April 28th MondoPOP presents “Atelier Popsurréaliste” a closer look on French Popsurréaliste imagery.
Curated by David Vecchiato and Serana Melandri
There is much talk about Surrealism. After the explosion of the new Californian art labeled “Lowbrow » by the artist Robert Williams and later « Pop Surrealism » by the critic Kirsten Andersonthe references to irrational issues in the New Contemporary Art from around the world are constantly increasing.The French Surrealism of Breton is therefore emerged in the production of new generations of artists since the image culture has produced a sort of collective unconscious that draws from all over the world in producing figurative images, not so complex to be interpreted and easily shared.And it is the sharing, by the web, which makes these new imaginaries, as well as widespread, so globalized that the challenge become to identify the country of origin of the artists who produced them.
MondoPOP accepts this challenge, laying a careful look at contemporary productions to the Urban or Pop Surrealist Art created in the Homeland of Surrealism: France.
Twelve of the most promising French artists from the Low Brow Art, Urban Art and Pop Surrealism show two pieces each to the Italian public.
Twelve points of view that will make access to their workshops to explain the new art from France.
MondoPOP’s “street room” becomes a Popsurréaliste Atelier that with the coming of the Spring opens to visitors.
With the art of:
100Taur, Benjaminjj, Bunka, Ciou, David « craiion » Monteiro, Fräneck, Lostfish, Malojo, Niark, Odö, Veks, Zelda Bomba.
