From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
was a 2003
exhibition announced as "the world's largest show of living artists working today in Surrealism
, the Vienna School
, Neuve Invention
, the Macabre
and Singulier Art
" organised by Terrance Lindall
at the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center
, New York
. A feature essay, "What's New In the Surreal World - Surrealism isn't Dead, It's Dreaming" appeared in the March 2006 issue of Art and Antiques Magazine
, the "top 100 collectors" issue.
The show included a "surrealist fashion show"
, a "surrealist film festival"
, "surrealist theater"
, "surrealist butoh
dance," and other events throughout the neighbourhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn
The show was opened with a "Grand Surrealist Costume Ball"
with Le Viconte de St. Ouen opening the Brave Destiny exhibit at the ball along with the Baron of Fulwood and Brigid Marlin.
The Brave Destiny show continued citywide at other galleries, and internationally with a ten-museum concurrent traveling exhibit throughout Australia
The exhibit and its attendant events were covered extensively and favorably in the print media as well as onMTV
. However, the exhibit also drew criticism, including the publication of a tract entitled "Craven Destiny" which accused Brave Destiny of misrepresenting and exploiting surrealism.
The show, from set up to take down, was the most photographed art show in New York City.
