Opening: Les Enfants TERRIBLES @ Spacejunk Art Centers in FranceJuxtapoz // Friday, 23 Sep 2011
Spacejunk Art Centers in France opened Les Enfants TERRIBLES Saturday, September 17, sponsored by Juxtapoz and featuring the lowbrow and pop surrealism art of Todd Schorr, Robert Williams, Jeff Soto, Joe Sorren, Nicolas Thomas, Robert Crumb, and more.
"Throughout time, the art world has seen its share of 'enfants terribles' whose work questions academic standards and disrupts the established channels of distribution and ways of acquiring legitimacy. On any occasion, they never fail to provoke a reaction. This exhibition sheds light on two artistic movements which, although originally from the United States, today, enjoy worldwide recognition and a global following: Lowbrow and Pop Surrealism. Two movements which have been intersecting and colliding since the '70s, led by what you could surely call some of the art world’s 'enfants terribles'.”
