Beautiful Bizarre curated exhibition “Secret Longings” @ Corey Helford Gallery

The Secret Longings exhibition, is Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s 15th international curated exhibition, and our first in partnership with prestigious Los Angeles gallery, Corey Helford Gallery. This exhibition brings together 79 of the world’s best two and three dimensional artists, each exploring the Secret Longings theme through the lens of their unique lived experience and artistic styles. While at the same time bringing the pages of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine to life!

It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them. 

George Eliot

Secret Longings explores our hidden desires and deep longings, whether these are emotional or physical; focused on a partner or friend; lifestyle or career – these longings come from the heart. They are our hearts, or souls if you rather, whispering to us.

The Heart is like a candle,
longing to be lit!

Rumi
