I:MAGE – Esoteric Art


Agostino Arrivabene

Agostino Arrivabene

Fulgur Esoterica presents I:MAGE, a week-long exhibition showcasing a rare selection of the growing international developments in esoteric art. Fifteen artists will exhibit their work at Store Street Gallery, Bloomsbury, London, from Sunday 19 May to Saturday 25 May 2013.

The common thread between these artists is the internalisation of esoteric themes and the externalisation of the mythical, the magical and the mysterious in their many forms. Ranging from the post-1940 work of progressive women such as Ithell Colquhoun and Steffi Grant, to the contemporary dark symbolist wanderings of Agostino Arrivabene and Denis Forkas Kostromitin and the exploratory audio-visual practices of NOKO, I:MAGE promises to be a landmark exhibition for a new, emerging category of art.

Exhibiting artists include:

Michael Bertiaux, Jesse Bransford , Andrew Chumbley, Ithell Colquhoun, Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule, Peter Dyde, Denis Forkas Kostromitin, Cristina Francov, Rik Garrett, Steffi Grant, Barry William Hale, NOKO, Francesco Parisi, Residue, David Chaim Smith, Austin Osman Spare, Michael Strum

Special Guest: Agostino Arrivabene

Held in the heart of London at the Store Street Gallery, this show will cover two floors and over 1600sq ft of exhibition space. A full colour catalogue will be available.
