Joel Rea’s artwork features in this Beautiful Bizarre Magazine debut museum exhibition, Gaia Reborn: A Future Utopia. Held in Urban Nation Berlin, Germany from May 11 – July 10 2019.

After curating seven successful exhibitions in Australia, Japan, and the USA, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine is thrilled collaborate with Yasha Young, Executive Director of the Urban Nation Museum for Urban Contemporary Art in Berlin, to bring you something truly special!

The Beautiful Bizarre Magazine debut museum exhibition, Gaia Reborn: A Future Utopia will feature over 50 of the world’s best artists in contemporary representational art across all styles and traditional mediums, which will individually and collectively bring to life an incredibly important theme – the conservation of our planet!

“Artists are society’s visionaries, so it is our hope that through this collection of work we can inspire thought, discussion, and a deeper connection with the earth. Only if we as a society once again truly value and respect Gaia, our Mother Earth, can we create a future utopia, one in which all of her creatures can thrive. Thus ensuring we leave the next generation and those that follow a vibrant, living planet.” – Danijela Krha Purssey, Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine.

The Gaia Reborn: A Future Utopia opening reception at Urban Nation will be a truly immersive experience, including a haunting operatic performance by Roxanna Walitzki. The space will be transformed with a luscious abundance of greenery, the smell of wood chips will delight the senses. A huge living tree will invite you into the main room while rich dark walls will cocoon and beautifully showcase the deeply evocative artwork.
