Rome’s Dorothy Circus Gallery and New York’s Jonathan Levine Gallery have joined forces to bring together some of the biggest names in the new contemporary scene for a museum exhibition in Italy entitled “Pop Surrealism”. The exhibition is to be held in the Umbrian town of Spoleto at the Carandente Museum from June 26th until October 15th 2010 with the opening tying in with the town’s annual arts festival – “Festival dei 2 Mondi“.
Joe Sorren’s (see our studio visit) new piece above, entitled “Portrait of Gelsomina & Romeo”, will be showing alongside a mixture of newly created and loaned pieces from artists such as Mark Ryden, Marion Peck, Shepard Fairey, Jeff Soto, Travis Louie, plus a whole lot more. The show is curated by Dorothy Circus’ director Alexandra Mazzanti & Gianluca Marziani, and promises to bring a taste of the largely USA based art movement to Italy.
