Contemporary Arts Salon – Survey Select pays homage to curators and fine art salons from the 1920’s that continue today.  The essential arts salon ingredient is a centralized theme, in this case “narrative storytelling” with featured inter-disciplinary artists including poets, musicians, performers, critics, fine artists and philosophers.  The arts salon inspired the surrealist art movement, which then flourished in the visual arts, literature, music and film.  The surrealists broke away from the conventions of realism, rejected rationality, experimented and were not afraid to celebrate the macabre.  Survey Select looks to inspire new thinking in the world of contemporary art by celebrating a unique style of narrative that evades intellectual labeling.
