In early spring, in an attempt to understand the effects of the pandemic from the perspective of the expressive mind, PM/AM initiated a discussion between a group of artists, opening up an exchange that brought a number of topics into the unique frame of pandemic life–the art world, productivity, politics, society, psychology, media, technology, domestic life.
Second Smile looks at new tendencies in figuration with a surrealist bent. Including loans of classical surrealist works, the exhibition focuses on what parts of the surrealist project are compelling for artists today and in what ways these distinctions of movements are being dissolved.
