Next summer, a new edition of the International Surrealism Now will take place at the Multimedia P.O.R.O.S. Museum, in the village of Condeixa-a-Nova, in Portugal.
The International Surrealism Now is a project by Santiago Ribeiro, Portuguese surrealist painter, who has been dedicated to promoting the Surrealism of the 21st century, through exhibitions held 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 and Brazil.
International Surrealism Now began in Coimbra in 2010, where a first major exhibition took place, organized by the Bissaya Barreto Foundation and conceived by Santiago Ribeiro. Since then, the event has been held in Conímbriga, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Museu de Conímbriga (the second most visited museum in Portugal).
After a show in Paris, with the support of the GAPP (Art Gallery Portugal Present) and Liba WS, once again organized by the Bissaya Barreto Foundation and Santiago Ribeiro, it moved to Madrid, with the support of Yamal Din, to Dallas, Los Angeles and Mississippi, with the support of the American surrealist artist Shahla Rosa, and also to Berlin, with the support of the Portuguese Consulate.
