Over the past forty years, in the Middle East and various places in the world, Surrealism was considered as a past artistic movement and confined to limited artistic icons. And yet, in the meantime, Surrealism was constantly evolving and developing its tools and philosophy to free human imagination, where the mental play of imagination through art and literature remains the most fundamental activity.
In the continuation of the contemporary surrealist wave in Egypt and the Middle East, and after the International Exhibition of Surrealism held in Cairo from 15 to 19 February 2022 as the start of a round trip / Cairo - Saint Cirq Lapopie. Based on the wonderful energy achieved with its success, the idea of continuing the adventure in Alexandria was born from the collective work of surrealists from Egypt, France and all over the world.
With more than 60 participating surrealist artists from different parts of the world, on June 26, 2022 /7pm - We invite you to inaugurate the exhibition: Echoes of Contemporary Surrealism - Maze of Dreams and Games which include displaying a wide range of artworks, music, surrealist films, visual arts, and practising surrealist collective games during the exhibition with workshops on collective surrealist creative techniques and games created from 1924 until today.
