L’AGE D’OR is an underground surrealistic exhibition of contemporary interpretations of the most significant themes from the surrealist film ‘L’Age D’Or’ (Golden Age), of which this year we commemorate the 90th anniversary: Destruction, confusion, passion, fear, humanization, oppression, isolation, love and humour.
The concept of ‘L’Age D’or’ exhibition is based on the film ‘L’Age D’Or’; a French surrealist satirical comedy from 1930, directed by Luis Bunuel in collaboration with Salvador Dali.
We invite artists from different countries and cultural backgrounds to present a mixed media exhibition of paintings, photography, collages, videos, sculptures and other media. These different cultural perspectives give, through their personal experience, a unique impression on the various views on the themes expressed in L’Age D’Or.
The purpose of the exhibition is to get people thinking about cultural and moral established values, in the way the movie does.
L’Age D’Or will be presented as a pop-up exhibition; in different locations with different selection of artists. Visit our website to get a notion of the previous events held in Amsterdam.
For L’AGE D’OR exhibition we are looking for artists who can respond to the possible answers to the questions:
⦁ What would Bunuel’s L’Age D’Or looks like today?
⦁ In what kind of ‘Golden Age’ do we live today?
Stay tuned for the upcomming L’AGE D’OR event!!
