Dreamscapes is coming to Enschede in the Netherlands this year with a special exhibition of international Imaginary Realism. Discover the fantasy-rich worlds of established artists working in the traditions of the old masters, as well as the young and talented artists adopting a new approachs and techniques to alternative styles of realism. “Dreamscapes: Mixed-Up” is the intersection of the traditional and with the mysterious and playful aspects of this art movement.

Dreamscapes is a series of Imaginary Realism exhibitions that take place at various locations throughout the world. Dreamscape exhibitions and catalogues showcase magic realism, fantastic realism, surrealism and other mind-blowing creations by leading artists and emerging talent. Previously-featured artists include Viktor Safonkin, Lukáš Kándl, Patrick Woodroffe and Michael Parkes.

TETEM artspace will host a combination of established artists like Michael Parkes, Saturno Buttò, Ole Ahlberg and Jake Baddeley, as well as the new generation of artists that these artists have inspired. Featured artists exploring imaginary realism on their own terms include: Menunana, Kwon Kyungyup, Birgitta Sundström Jansdotter, Wendy Farrow, Buddy Nestor, Joran van der Haar, Ego Leonard, Tomasz Alen Kopera, Ludmilla van der Spoel, Valerie Zwart en Phynta.

The ‘Dreamscapes’ exhibition concept is the brainchild of Marcel Salome. Working closely with galleries like Cabinodd, Dreamscapes has become a well-regarded platform for imaginary realism. This year’s edition at TETEM artspace is organised by Marcel Salome (Imaginary Editions) and Ella Buzo (Cabinodd), the collaborative team behind two earlier editions of Dreamscapes in 2008 and 2010.

The one and only Medusa and her lovely ladies will be on hand for the festive opening of Dreamscapes: Mixed-Up on March 22nd at TETEM artspace! We’re forecasting burlesque eye-candy with a shot of ‘green fairy’ from the absinthe bar.
