“International Surrealism Now” is a project instigated by the surrealist painter Santiago Ribeiro, who has promoted the XXI century surrealism exhibitions throughout various parts of the world. The first exhibition opened in Coimbra, 2010, being organized by the foundation Bissaya Barreto . Then in Conímbriga, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Monograph Museum Conimbriga (the second most visited in Portugal). The exhibition then travelled to Paris with the support of the Galería de arte Portugal Presente, artist Liba WS, and again organized by Foundation Bissaya Barreto and Santiago Ribeiro. Finally the exhibition went to Madrid, with the support of artist Jamal Din.

Subsequently, Ribeiro joined forces with artist Victor Lages (who is behind the “Utopia of Fantastic Art” project), with the purpose of organizing exhibitions in the Lisbon area. This project was endorsed by the House of Culture of Setúbal , in the center of Lisbon, in the Gallery of the Caixa de Credito Agricola , by the house of culture Jaime Lobo e Silva in Ericeira. Most recently the project travelled to the Fellini Gallery Berlin, with an exhibition entitled “21 st Century Portuguese Surrealism “.
