Lisbon Events Calendar

Logistics for planning things to do for an excellent day (or week, or month) in and around Lisbon, in English. ATTENTION: Most of the top museums in Lisbon have closed due to the attempt to contain the Coronavirus. There will likely be last-minute cancellations on events until mid-May and possibly beyond, so for now, it’s best to call and check if the event you fancy is still going on just in case.

ONLINE PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT | Novais Brothers: Photos with History | ONLINE | FREE
May 29 all-day
ONLINE PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT | Novais Brothers: Photos with History | ONLINE | FREE

Mário Novais and Horácio Novais were brothers who, having been born into a family of photographers right here in Lisbon, had both photography and Lisbon in their blood.

Mário had started with portraits and later dabbled in journalism, advertising, commercial and industrial photography, and eventually founded his own studio. Horácio worked as a photo reporter for the newspaper O Século until 1931, when he, too, opened his own studio.

Over the previous century, the brothers, together and separately, captured a wide array of black and white images of everyday life in Lisbon, from schools to hotels to universities to luminous neon signs.

Biblioteca de Arte Gulbenkian em Casa invites you to view what the city looked, in simpler times, through the eyes and lenses of the Novais brothers, without leaving your house.

FREE.

ART EXHIBT | Margot Kick: Matter, through the wall | São Bento | FREE
May 29 @ 16:00 – 20:00
ART EXHIBT | Margot Kick: Matter, through the wall | São Bento | FREE @ Zaratan, Lisbon | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Many of us have been feeling like going through the wall these last few months, for obvious reasons. One way to avoid property damage, now that restrictions are being lifted, is to go see some art.

Artist Margot Kick was born in Munich in 1985. She’s probably been feeling the same as many of us recently. She has a Fine Arts degree in Photography and a Master’s in Art History. She has exhibited her stuff in London, Glasgow, and even Bushwick, New York. She also recently did a residency here in Lisbon, at the Zaratan gallery. This weekend, Margot is doing an open studio and presenting the solo exhibition that said residency resulted in, titled “Matter, through the wall.”

Here’s what the organizers say about it:
“Central to the artist’s open studio at Zaratan is the series of paintings with abstract morphologies intertwining with lines of poetry. Organic forms evolve and connect to an outer side. The exhibition also includes a selection of works on paper, where the artist continues her ongoing exploration of the line with watercolors and graphite.
Oscillating between drawing, writing, and painting, the resulting body of work shows her interest in how the dichotomy of works establish multiple narratives.”

OPEN HOURS: 29-30-31 of May, 16h-20h.
