Fri
to Nov 23 | SCULPTURE EXHIBIT | Across Space by Gonzalo Ramírez | Marques de Pombal | FREE
Nov 22 @ 09:00 – 19:30
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.
Fri, 9h-14h30.
Sat, 9h-12h.

Living in exile can be tough, as some of Atas’ own self-exiled staff know…
Throughout Portugal’s version of the Trump era — i.e. the Estado Novo dictatorship — countless locals decided to pack up and go rather than stand by and watch, or worse.

Here’s how the organizers of #ECOS – Exílios, contrariar silêncios (“#ECHOES – Exiles, counteract silences”) describe this historical and all-too-relevant exhibit:

“This was an important flow of people in the history of Portugal. Men and women fleeing repression, imprisonment, the Colonial War, and poverty have come a long way, including those in many European countries. They went into exile in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Sweden, Denmark, etc..

The exhibition addresses the memory and material traces of these paths, from the clandestine “border jump” to the objects that marked everyday life, and those that came in the return bag.

Millions of people continue to travel the path of exile in search of refuge, home, and shelter. The stories #Echoes account also bring us to the present and let us think about building belonging places in Europe today.”

Show up daily, 10h-17h, until November 29th.

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.

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.

Check out some of Nuno and Óscar’s previous videos here.

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.
