Beautiful Bizarre curated exhibition “Fable & Folklore” @ Copro Gallery

The Fable & Folklore exhibition is Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s 17th international curated exhibition, and our 2nd in partnership with Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, CA, USA! This exhibition brings together 80 incredible local American and international artists. Each exploring the Fable and Folklore 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!

Everyone has the same experiences, yet everyone responds differently to them. Hunger and pain. Hot and cold weather. Joy and sorrow. Our reactions to these events may vary, but all of these things are unavoidable. Folklore gives us the wisdom to understand these moments from different points of view.

It showcases that all of our problems and successes happen in every culture and throughout different periods of history. We are unique as individuals, but we are all connected through these moral truths.

Farmers’ Almanac

Fables often transport readers and listeners to a fantasy realm depicting epic adventure with magical elements and mythical creatures that relate to the traditional beliefs, customs and stories of a community that transcends generations. They are timeless and enchanting stories that often contain moral lessons that can be learned about a particular tradition, culture or society through the stories it tells.

The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages is preserved into perpetuity by a nation’s fables, folklore, and proverbs.
