OPEN CALL BARCELONA
SURREALISTIC GROUP EXHIBITION
L’AGE D’OR – 6th edition
An Absurdist Art, Film, Fashion and Performance event, coming to Barcelona in May 2024.
L’AGE D’OR is an international art exhibition based on the 1930’s French surrealistic satirical film L’Âge d’or, directed by Luis Buñuel in collaboration with Salvador Dali.
Having hosted several previous successful events in Amsterdam and most recently in London, we are excited to announce the next L’AGE D’OR event will take place in Barcelona, in the homeland of the directors of the original film “L’AGE D’OR” Luis Buñuel & Salvador Dali.
We invite artists from all countries and backgrounds to present an exhibition of paintings, photography, video, sculpture, and other media. This unique perspective of varying cultures and experiences allows the viewer to experience the themes expressed in L’AGE D’OR in new and exciting ways. The purpose of the exhibition is to get people thinking about culturally and morally established values, like the film itself does.
The L’AGE D’OR exhibitions continue to work with established international artists as well as emerging artists.
We are calling on all artists who explore surrealist, provocative, dark and outsider art.
