AboutIn the occasion of this unique anniversary the Gallery decided to prepare more than a celebration, giving birth to a grandiose reunion of its most important pop surreal icons that will collaborate with new international figures in a magical meeting starting from London on October 2017 continuing in Rome on November 2017. “Pages from Mind Travellers Diaries” is the name of the Group show, a title mirroring the Gallery’s restless mood and Ideologies. That is the way it all started, with the idea of a journey toward the remotest ways of surrealism, a journey full of surprises and significant meetings that shaped DCG’s identity. Today, the Gallery wants to keep on wandering, as a circus, to open its curtains once again to a new public, to collect new essential moments for its travel diary. The group shows in the spirit of travel represent a way to commemorate the gallery’s goals and to pronounce its intense itinerary.
With the aim of spreading its image around the world, while absorbing new cultural contests the Gallery starts its journey around Europe heading towards a new capital, London. Shifting from extremely bizarre tastes to the most refined tendencies, what could have been a first destination for the Circus if not the magnificent London? The city of the extreme glamour, the dynamic center of fashion which can suddenly turn into the elegant abode of the evening teas, has the perfect atmosphere to welcome DCG’s unique style.The first Group Exhibition in London will feature the artists Kazuki Takamatsu (JP), Joe Sorren (USA), Marion Peck (USA), Ray Caesar (UK), Travis Louie (USA), and Camille Rose Garcia (USA). Mark Ryden, the King of Pop Surrealism will be present as a special guest. Those are popular names of Pop Surreal characters already on the scene from a very long time; that is why Dorothy Circus decided to call them to introduce the Pop Surreal rooted culture on the English ground. Those great artists’ extravagant production, made of all the possible artistic mediums and personal styles, going from the digital highly detailed images to a more painterly approach of the brushes on canvas, will be a guide for the visitor to start exploring the intricate realms of this art. After the long-awaited event, they will keep on working with DCG as icons, for a brilliant course of solo exhibitions, one per each artist that will start with the coming of 2018, in Rome.
