QUANTA DADA: The New Dadaism, an international online solo painting exhibition by Ivan Suvanjieff opens on June 30, and will continue through July 30, 2022.

A multifaceted artist, with a career full of success, Ivan Suvanjieff suffers from epilepsy, with seizures almost every day.

As expressed in his statement: "I am keenly aware of the fact that, if I had been born even 50 years earlier, my voice would have been silenced. Those who saw my epilepsy would have perhaps delivered me to "The Asylum for Epileptics and Epileptic Insane” in Ohio, which was located very close to my hometown. And as a U.S. citizen, those like me with epilepsy were forbidden to marry and sterilization was regularly performed on epileptics, until 1956. I was born in 1957.

The negative stigma associated with the word "epilepsy" continues to be very strong. And for this reason, I always tell everyone I meet that I am an epileptic. It is a part of who I am. It allows me to see the world in a different way. I refuse to have my creativity canceled.

And I am fiercely committed to defending the voices of those who see the world differently. Whatever my mode of expression, I constantly stand for free expression in a world dominated by the single thought and the established norm. This is the reason why I created my solo exhibition, "Quanta Dada, the new Dadaism". I was drawn to the Dada movement of 1910-1920, a period of intense pictorial and intellectual creativity, which sprang forth 100 years ago in a time which profoundly parallels our own. Dada was created in reaction to an era of of global pandemic, crushing autocracy, concentration of wealth, mega-corporate power, and a world on the brink of destruction. The parallels to our current lives in the 2020's are both striking and profound. It is time for a new Dadaism which challenges all established norms, Quanta Dada, in this new era where the human voice once again deserves to be defended."
