Surreal Objects, Three-Dimensional Works From Dali To Man Ray

Posted: 20 May 2011 06:48 PM PDT

Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt will held the first, wide-ranging exhibition to focus exclusively on the Surrealists' three-dimensional works – about 150 of them in all. From today's perspective, many of them seem surprisingly fresh and contemporary, not historical artifacts at all. The selection presents artists of the surrealist period from 1925–1945, including familiar names such as Duchamp, Magritte, Dalí, Picasso and Miró, but also many other artists whose striking works are still to be discovered by the general public.

Surrealist works feature the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur; however, many Surrealist artists and writers regard their work as an expression of the philosophical movement first and foremost, with the works being an artifact.

Don't forget to mark your calendar from 11th Feb to 29th May 2011.

Bell & Ross BR02 Diver Watch

Posted: 20 May 2011 08:54 AM PDT

Bell & Ross has unveiled two new diver watches, the BR02 Phantom & BR02 Steel that will be release in August 2011.

While the two models have 44mm steel cases with decompression valves and are powered by self winding Swiss automatic mechanical ETA 2892 movements with 1000 metre water resistance, the differences lie in the finishes touch.

The BR02 Phantom has a stealthy black SuperLuminova applied hands and markers on a black 'Clous De Paris' dial and the BR02 Steel version comes with a carbon fibre dial.
