Surrealism, born out of Dada in the 1920s, is one of art’s most important, influential and lasting movements. It dominated the 20th century, inspiring artists of all media, often leading them to create new media altogether. While the names Dalí, Miró and Duchamp come to mind when surrealism is discussed, the movement continued to develop and evolve. LuminArte Gallery, 1727 E. Levee St., presents exhibitions that illustrate just that. Surrealism of the 21st Century features numerous Texas artists, and an international group of artists show their work in a presentation of Luso-American Surrealism, a continuation of a series of exhibitions relating to Portuguese artist Santiago Ribeiro’s project International Surrealism Now. The exhibitions run through April 26, with a free opening reception 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday. Many artists will be in attendance.
