Dreamscapes Book and Exhibition – Amsterdam 2008

Dreamscapes 2009 - The Best of Imaginary Realism

Dreamscapes 2009 – The Best of Imaginary Realism

The new Dreamscape book has been released in Amsterdam at the book launch and exhibition. The new Dreamscapes 2009 book represents 52 artists working in imaginary realism from around the world and has 164 pages in full color. As always, the print quality is from the highest level. The book is published by Marcel Salome through Re-Art. The book is the third in the Dreamscapes series.

The exhibition was organized by Ella Buzo from Cabinodd and Marcel. The project has continued to grow in strength and mature. Many of the exhibiting artists were in attendance, which was quite a feat as many live in other countries. The large hall at Loods was filled with artwork and people. It looked impressive.  Dreamscape unites art movements like magic realism, fantastic realism and surrealism under the collective name Imaginary Realism and brings them with various projects to the worldwide and well deserved attention. It was a little bit of art history in the making.
