to Nov 23 | SCULPTURE EXHIBIT | Across Space by Gonzalo Ramírez | Marques de Pombal | FREE @ Instituto Cervantes de Lisboa | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Gonzalo Ramírez is an artist from Uruguay. He makes sculptures. His new show is entitled “Do outro lado do espaço” (“Across space,” roughly).

Spanish-language school Instituto Cervantes de Lisboa, hosts of Gonzalo’s new show, describe his stuff like this:
“His sculptures stand out for their studied proportions, their textures, and colors, and in each of them, one appreciates the aesthetics, harmony, and movement, showing a careful fabrication by letting the soul of the materials used give it a glimpse… an unmistakable personal touch.”

Go witness Gonzalo’s personal take on careful fabrication.
Or learn some Spanish.
Or both.

HOURS:
Tue-Thursday, 9h-19h30.

Nov 22 @ 10:00 – 19:00
to Dec14 | PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT | Lisbon On Film | Chiado | FREE @ Livraria Ferin | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

There’s no doubt about it: Lisbon is a very photogenic city.
Which is why its ever-increasing selfie-taking population remains a mystery…

Lisbon Analogue Photography is self-described as “a group of photographers in love with analog photography who decided to create a collective in Lisbon.”

Here’s what they humbly say about their new exhibit at Livraria Ferin:
“We are very proud to invite you all to our next exhibition, ‘Lisbon on Film!’ This exhibition is a tribute to the city of Lisbon captured through analog cameras.”

Nov 22 @ 14:00 – 19:00
to Nov 29 | ART EXHIBIT | FACES Project by Elvira Carrasco | Santos | FREE @ carrasco.art | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Elvira Carrasco is a 29-year-old artist and art historian originally from Spain. Her work has been exhibited all over the world, from New York to Tel Aviv.

Elvira has a thing for faces. Particularly, her own. She likes to put body paint on it, and then photograph it, thereby creating unique and diverse self-portraits.

Carrasco.art — a semi-new local art gallery opened by Pedro Carrasco, on a street that shares both his and Elvira’s name (chance or design?) — hosts Elvira’s solo show “FACES,” and adds this:

“She creates her own ritual, like our distant ancestors used to do, like some tribes still do. She works alone. Far from everyone. Distant from humankind. She prepares herself and she meditates. She is afraid. But at this precise moment, the energy comes and floods her body. Then the work flows with no more hesitations or doubts…

Elvira discovered her own way to communicate with others – using her own face as a canvas is her purpose.”

Check out Elvira’s work face to face until November 29th.

Nov 22 @ 18:00 – 21:00
to Nov 30 | ART EXHIBIT | Desvio by Cláudia Salgueiro | São Bento | FREE @ Apaixonarte | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

“Apaixonar-te” is the Portuguese verb for falling in love, while “Arte” means… you guessed it — art.
And that’s how local art gallery APAIXONARTE (“falling in love with art,” roughly) got its name.

“Desvio” is the Portuguese word for “detour,” and also the name of the new solo show at APAIXONARTE by Porto-based artist Cláudia Salgueiro.
She describes it as follows:
“A set of drawings that aim to reflect on the act of walking, landscape, nature, body, and movement. Walking is the first and the most primitive way to travel. Like breathing, walking is defined as an unconscious act inherent to all of us.”

This November, why not take a walking detour and go breathe in some art?
Who knows, you might just fall in love…

The exhibition opens on Nov 8th, at 18h, and will be up until Nov 30th.

Gallery hours:
Mon-Fri – 12h-19h30.
Sat – 11h-16h (closed Sundays).

MULTIMEDIA PERFORMANCE | Filme-Concerto: Aurora | Graça | FREE @ Camones CineBar | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Nuno Costa likes the guitar, while Óscar Graça prefers piano. But they both like music, and also share a passion for cinema.

Since 2005, when Nuno and Óscar attended the Berklee College of Music, the pair have collaborated with various audiovisual and multimedia directors and producers worldwide.

Their latest project — Filme-Concerto (“Movie-Concert”) — is described by Nuno like this:
“This project aims not only to try to modernize or update, but rather to revive basic films in the history of cinema.”

The latest film the duo are reviving is 1927’s Aurora (Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans) by F. W. Murnau, with Nuno on guitar and Óscar on piano and keyboards (and both on laptops).

Come to Camones CineBar this Friday for an audio-visual hisotrcially-modern treat.

Nov 23 @ 08:00 – 18:00
Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

Weekly | MARKET | Used and Antique Books | Chiado | FREE @ Feira dos alfarrabistas do Chiado | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Feira dos Alfarrabistas (used book dealer fair) is a great place to break up the monotony of chain stores in Chiado and pick up something truly unique. Most books here are in Portuguese, but there are always gems in English and French and occasionally other languages. Several sellers also usually carry antique prints, old postcards, and maps. A very pleasant place to browse, and the prices are usually fairer than other markets.

ALL YEAR | GUIDED TOUR | Alfama and Mouraria Free Walking Tour | Rossio | FREE
Nov 23 @ 10:30 – 13:30
ALL YEAR | GUIDED TOUR | Alfama and Mouraria Free Walking Tour | Rossio | FREE @ VARIOUS LOCATIONS

The best way to experience history is to live it. That’s why our friends at Live History offer you an immersive three-hour glimpse into two of the most historical, oldest, and most alive neighborhoods in Lisbon: Mouraria and Alfama.
Free of charge.

The guides are enthusiastic, charming polyglots. They’re funny, welcome and respond thoughtfully to questions, intimidatingly knowledgeable, easy to follow (both on foot and in thought), and truly seem to care.
Also, their only pay is the love of their city and your tip at the end. Remember, these are locals and, despite what AirBnB might believe, need to live here too. So tip well if you feel you’ve lived some history!

What to know:
-You can pre-book a spot on our Marketplace. Or if you’re reading this the morning of, you could try to meet them at 10h30 by the statue at the center of Praça Dom Pedro IV, also known as Rossio square.
-The guides wear white Live History t-shirts, have white umbrellas, and are dressed up as Portuguese crusaders and navigators if you’re lucky.
-Available languages: English / Spanish (languages on demand: Portuguese / French / Czech / Slovak).
-These are free walking tours. Donations welcome at the end.
-Comfortable shoes and a water bottle are advisable.

Contact them if you need more info, or “if you feel the need for your own private tailor-made tour.”

And read Atlas‘ in-depth interview with Live History co-founder Jofre Correia here.

P.S.: If you’re worried about three hours up and down the eight (ask your guide) hills of Lisbon, we know for a fact that last August, in the sweltering heat, an American woman did the whole tour, effortlessly, with a smile on her face… a mere five days before giving birth.

Mara Castilho is a multi-talented multimedia artist who spends her days between London, Lisbon, and Rio de Janeiro.

Here’s what some art critics have said about her work: “… Castilho’s art puts us on the path of complete destruction and suspends us in time – it offers pure pleasure without real death.” Lapiz Art Magazine (SPAIN).

“Mara Castilho’s Installation ‘Absence II’ has the power, simplicity, and beauty that bring artists such as Bill Viola to mind… ” New York Arts Magazine (USA).

And here’s what Occupart, the latest gallery to have its walls lined with Mara’s stuff, say: “In her solo show O Vazio da Minha Alma (The empty of my soul), Mara exposes painted and embroidered photographs. Emptiness and loss haunt these works. Between black, white, and gold, Castilho exhibits images that navigate between beauty and the ugly, pain and love, emptiness and ruin, life and death.”

Refreshingly uplifting, no?
Come see how Mara fills the void.

Elvira Carrasco is a 29-year-old artist and art historian originally from Spain. Her work has been exhibited all over the world, from New York to Tel Aviv.

Elvira has a thing for faces. Particularly, her own. She likes to put body paint on it, and then photograph it, thereby creating unique and diverse self-portraits.

Carrasco.art — a semi-new local art gallery opened by Pedro Carrasco, on a street that shares both his and Elvira’s name (chance or design?) — hosts Elvira’s solo show “FACES,” and adds this:

“She creates her own ritual, like our distant ancestors used to do, like some tribes still do. She works alone. Far from everyone. Distant from humankind. She prepares herself and she meditates. She is afraid. But at this precise moment, the energy comes and floods her body. Then the work flows with no more hesitations or doubts…

Elvira discovered her own way to communicate with others – using her own face as a canvas is her purpose.”

Check out Elvira’s work face to face until November 29th.

“Apaixonar-te” is the Portuguese verb for falling in love, while “Arte” means… you guessed it — art.
And that’s how local art gallery APAIXONARTE (“falling in love with art,” roughly) got its name.

“Desvio” is the Portuguese word for “detour,” and also the name of the new solo show at APAIXONARTE by Porto-based artist Cláudia Salgueiro.
She describes it as follows:
“A set of drawings that aim to reflect on the act of walking, landscape, nature, body, and movement. Walking is the first and the most primitive way to travel. Like breathing, walking is defined as an unconscious act inherent to all of us.”

This November, why not take a walking detour and go breathe in some art?
Who knows, you might just fall in love…

The exhibition opens on Nov 8th, at 18h, and will be up until Nov 30th.

Gallery hours:
Mon-Fri – 12h-19h30.
Sat – 11h-16h (closed Sundays).

Depending on the job, Wednesdays can leave some people feeling like they’re in a jam. Anjos70 (no, despite popular belief we are not on their payroll; we just like the place) offers a way to get out of said jam with a weekly jam session.
Local musicians — André Jessen on drums, Jorge Figueiredo on bass, Bruno Vieira on guitar and Inês Laranjeira on vocals — will help you get through the work week with some live tunes. And, if you have a voice and/or an instrument, feel free to jump in on the jam.

There’s also a vegan dinner option at 18h, if that’s still your thing.

Weekly | WORKSHOP | DIY-day at Disgraça | Graça | FREE @ Disgraça | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

DIY has become a vague term in recent years. After all, we’re all in it together, right? Moreover, big business is all about buzzwords…
Nevertheless, with minimum wage persistently low and rent increasingly high, the times are riper than ever for some good old-fashioned do-it-yourself fun.
Disgraça, one of Lisbon’s best little-known venues for, among other things, light vegan dinners and heavy punk rock shows, is a pretty good definition of DIY (read their story here). That’s why every Wednesday they are hosting “DIY-day.” We’ll let them do the rest:
“We bring two really good things together – creating stuff AND hanging out with nice people.
Drop in any Wednesday from 18h!
Bring your own material!
NO DINNER but the bar is open and we will also provide some snacks.
To begin with, we will just learn from each other and so on, but in the future, there may be some workshops… bring your ideas!”
