Imagine Exhibitions invites organisations in Europe to submit an expression of interest for a new outdoor travelling exhibition by acclaimed “recycled art artist” and environmental activist Thomas Dambo.

Dambo is one of the world’s most prominent “recycled art artists” He is best known for his colossal troll sculptures that live as semi-permanent installations in parks, greenspaces, industrial parks, and other site-specific locations worldwide. Each sculpture is imbued with expression and character and is built entirely from scrap materials like wooden pallets, fallen branches, and twigs sourced from the location of the installation. Driven by a mission to inspire people to explore our relationship with the planet, many of Dambo’s works have an associated folk tale written by Dambo that addresses a complex problem of our world in an approachable, fun way.

Imagine Exhibitions and Thomas Dambo debuted a new traveling exhibition in 2023, TROLLS: Save the Humans. Building on the phenomenal success of the TROLLS: Save the Humans, we are partnering with Thomas Dambo to create an all-new exhibition to debut in Europe.

Imagine Exhibitions is looking for dynamic European venues to submit an expression of interest to host in the fall of 2024, spring of 2025, and beyond for this new groundbreaking exhibition.
