Sep 21 @ 10:00 – 19:00
to Dec 15 | ART EXHIBIT | Are you a Tourist? | Belém | 6€ @ Padrão dos Descobrimentos | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Are you a tourist?
No, seriously.
Are rent and petty theft going up because of you?
When you walk around Lisbon and see the increasing “Tourists F.ck Off” graffiti and stickers, do you ask yourself, “Do they mean me?”
Or maybe you even utter that same sentiment from time to time in an attempt to, you know, blend in?
After all, tourism is a state of mind…

Anyway, Padrão dos Descobrimentos invites you to ask these and other tough questions in their new show… inside popular tourist destination Belém.
Here’s what they say:
“What is a tourist? Can we all be tourists? Is a tourist always a tourist? What was tourism like in the time of our grandparents? Can we be tourists in the cities we live in?
The exhibition invites us to look at tourists and their activities, but also to migrants and locals, paying special attention to our daily or occasional encounters, showing that we all can learn from one another. For that, we need only to see each other as inhabitants of the same world, although we look at it through different perspectives and with different expectations.”

Are you a tourist…?

Daily: 10h-19h.

ENTRY: 6€ (for tourists and locals).

to Oct 27 | ART EXHIBIT | Banksy: Genius or Vandal? | Belém | 6 - 32€ @ Cordoaria Nacional | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

“Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better-looking place.”
Banksy.

Well, the elusive Brit that is Banksy has definitely made the world better-looking. So that answers that question.
Then again, no one says that being a vandal and being a genius are mutually exclusive. For the next few months, the centuries-old former naval rope-making factory-turned exhibition center that is Cordoaria Nacional invites you to view some of the mysterious bad boy’s pieces out of their natural habitat. Over 70 works, including original pieces, sculptures, art installations, video, and photography.
Here’s what they add (those vandals):
“This exhibition, like all previous shows of Banksy’s work, is not authorized by the artist, who seeks to protect his anonymity and independence from the system.”

Opening Hours:
Sun to Fri – 10h-19h.
Saturdays- 10h-20h.
(Final entry one hour before closing).

Sep 21 @ 14:00 – 19:00
to Sept 28 | PAINTING EXHIBIT | BABEL by João Teixeira | Santos | FREE @ carrasco.art | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

João Teixeira (not the football player) was born in 1982 in Coimbra, where he lives and works today.
He studied health and medicine for over 15 years and started dabbling in painting in 2012.
Since then, he has had numerous solo and group shows, both at home and abroad. The human figure is his central point of interest, specifically “its movement and iteration with the environment.”

João’s latest show is called Babel, and is described by its organizers like this:
“Babel is a chapter that has been stored for some time in the drawer of stories that João Teixeira creates through his works. A chapter that translates his view of intolerance, indifference to others, hasty judgments, prejudices that determine behavior, and preconceived condemnation of the unknown.
Through the figurative expression of the works that make up “Babel” which, in its genesis, portray his vision of refugees, João Teixeira encourages us to look closely and seriously to reflect on the values ​​of our time and the role of each. One, in a world that belongs to everyone.”

Sep 21 @ 14:30 – 18:00
to Oct 1 | ART EXHIBIT | Tania Guzman in Lisbon | Campolide | FREE @ Colorida Art | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Tania Guzman is the type of artist who reminds us that, despite being old-school, the art of painting a canvas well is yet to die.
Colorida Art, the hosts of her latest solo show, say this:
“The artist Tania Guzman seeks to convey in her works the aesthetics of syncretism and miscegenation, the pride of its origin, to show the traditional through a renewed look. It represents with fidelity and harmony the human and the objective without distraction, to focus on its symbolic power. There is a rich syncretism in Mexico that leads the artist to express her contrasts in plain backgrounds and carefully chosen figures, tiny brushstrokes of acrylic, tempera or oil, and pencil strokes, and shadows with colorful accents that accentuate the symbolic element.”

Coincidentally, Tania Guzman was born in Mexico, where she lives and works today.

Gallery hours:
Tuesday-Friday, 14h30-18h.

to Sept 30 | OPEN-AIR FILM CYCLE | Spaces that have no place | Alfama | FREE @ Casa da Chada | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Mário Dionísio was a Lisbon-born, -bred, and -buried painter, writer, professor, and critic from the last century. He had a big influence on the arts here.

About a decade ago, a bunch of his family members and random art geeks decided to open a cultural space in his honor, and that’s how Casa Da Achada was born. Part library, part museum, part documentation center, the space aims to preserve the city’s cultural heritage.

And now — every Monday through September at 21h30, to be exact — Casa Da Achada presents Espaços que não têm lugar (“Spaces that have no place”) — a series of films described by the organizers like this:

“If the whole world is made up of change, the spaces we go through, which are part of our daily lives, are no exception. They change with the uses that we give them, with the collective occupation or the abandonment of the day-to-day, and they change due to the economic interests of those who command and want to make the space profitable, empty, or full of life.

With this cycle of cinema, we want to question the concepts of space and place, through films with different perspectives. We want to think of spaces that no longer have a place like a grocery store swallowed by a skyscraper or a hole dug in the center of Paris to make room for a huge subway station.
They are spaces that can be imaginary or real, under construction or in continuous deconstruction, that have lost their place in our cities, neighborhoods, and also in our lives. In the cinema, however, the spaces that have no place go live in another way, in new ways, and remain in our memory.”

With spacey classics like Being John Malkovich to the Edge of the World, free of charge, you can make some space in your schedule for this one.

See the full program of films, with showtimes, here.

Learn more about the other events going on at the space through the summer (like a painting exhibit and various workshops) here.

FREE ENTRY (donations to the space welcome).

For that, we need only to see each other as inhabitants of the same world, although we look at it through different perspectives and with different expectations.”

“Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better-looking place.”
Banksy.

Well, the elusive Brit that is Banksy has definitely made the world better-looking. So that answers that question.
Then again, no one says that being a vandal and being a genius are mutually exclusive. For the next few months, the centuries-old former naval rope-making factory-turned exhibition center that is Cordoaria Nacional invites you to view some of the mysterious bad boy’s pieces out of their natural habitat. Over 70 works, including original pieces, sculptures, art installations, video, and photography.
Here’s what they add (those vandals):
“This exhibition, like all previous shows of Banksy’s work, is not authorized by the artist, who seeks to protect his anonymity and independence from the system.”

Opening Hours:
Sun to Fri – 10h-19h.
Saturdays- 10h-20h.
(Final entry one hour before closing).

to Sept 28 | PAINTING EXHIBIT | BABEL by João Teixeira | Santos | FREE @ carrasco.art | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

João Teixeira (not the football player) was born in 1982 in Coimbra, where he lives and works today.
He studied health and medicine for over 15 years and started dabbling in painting in 2012.
Since then, he has had numerous solo and group shows, both at home and abroad. The human figure is his central point of interest, specifically “its movement and iteration with the environment.”

João’s latest show is called Babel, and is described by its organizers like this:
“Babel is a chapter that has been stored for some time in the drawer of stories that João Teixeira creates through his works. A chapter that translates his view of intolerance, indifference to others, hasty judgments, prejudices that determine behavior, and preconceived condemnation of the unknown.
Through the figurative expression of the works that make up “Babel” which, in its genesis, portray his vision of refugees, João Teixeira encourages us to look closely and seriously to reflect on the values ​​of our time and the role of each. One, in a world that belongs to everyone.”

Tania Guzman is the type of artist who reminds us that, despite being old-school, the art of painting a canvas well is yet to die.
Colorida Art, the hosts of her latest solo show, say this:
“The artist Tania Guzman seeks to convey in her works the aesthetics of syncretism and miscegenation, the pride of its origin, to show the traditional through a renewed look. It represents with fidelity and harmony the human and the objective without distraction, to focus on its symbolic power. There is a rich syncretism in Mexico that leads the artist to express her contrasts in plain backgrounds and carefully chosen figures, tiny brushstrokes of acrylic, tempera or oil, and pencil strokes, and shadows with colorful accents that accentuate the symbolic element.”

Coincidentally, Tania Guzman was born in Mexico, where she lives and works today.

Gallery hours:
Tuesday-Friday, 14h30-18h.

Are you a tourist?
No, seriously.
Are rent and petty theft going up because of you?
When you walk around Lisbon and see the increasing “Tourists F.ck Off” graffiti and stickers, do you ask yourself, “Do they mean me?”
Or maybe you even utter that same sentiment from time to time in an attempt to, you know, blend in?
After all, tourism is a state of mind…

Anyway, Padrão dos Descobrimentos invites you to ask these and other tough questions in their new show… inside popular tourist destination Belém.
Here’s what they say:

Mário Dionísio was a Lisbon-born, -bred, and -buried painter, writer, professor, and critic from the last century. He had a big influence on the arts here.

About a decade ago, a bunch of his family members and random art geeks decided to open a cultural space in his honor, and that’s how Casa Da Achada was born. Part library, part museum, part documentation center, the space aims to preserve the city’s cultural heritage.

And now — every Monday through September at 21h30, to be exact — Casa Da Achada presents Espaços que não têm lugar (“Spaces that have no place”) — a series of films described by the organizers like this:

“If the whole world is made up of change, the spaces we go through, which are part of our daily lives, are no exception. They change with the uses that we give them, with the collective occupation or the abandonment of the day-to-day, and they change due to the economic interests of those who command and want to make the space profitable, empty, or full of life.

With this cycle of cinema, we want to question the concepts of space and place, through films with different perspectives. We want to think of spaces that no longer have a place like a grocery store swallowed by a skyscraper or a hole dug in the center of Paris to make room for a huge subway station.
They are spaces that can be imaginary or real, under construction or in continuous deconstruction, that have lost their place in our cities, neighborhoods, and also in our lives. In the cinema, however, the spaces that have no place go live in another way, in new ways, and remain in our memory.”

With spacey classics like Being John Malkovich to the Edge of the World, free of charge, you can make some space in your schedule for this one.

See the full program of films, with showtimes, here.

Learn more about the other events going on at the space through the summer (like a painting exhibit and various workshops) here.

FREE ENTRY (donations to the space welcome).
