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.

to July 8 | ART EXHIBIT | Paulo Damião: How to Survive an Island | Belém | FREE @ Arte Periférica | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

It seems that art has been on the periphery in recent months and that we have all been surviving on some surreal, pandemic-ridden island… Well, that’s about to change.
The Arte Periférica reopens its doors on May 18 — which is coincidentally International Museum Day 2020 and marks the gallery’s 29th anniversary. For this special day the gallery will hold the inauguration of “Como sobreviver a uma ilha” (“How to survive an island”) by artist Paulo Damião.
Here’s how Paulo describes it:
“This exhibition comes as a result of a trip I made to an island: Ireland. It is also, of course, the reflection of the effect that this physical, emotional, and spiritual journey had on me. This, perhaps, may have been provided because it already belongs to another island; the abstract idea of ​​having lived there in times, even though it never happened, in a kind of catharsis, an ancestral feeling of belonging.
This trip alerted me to more questions than answers. We are all islands and within them the fragility of almost always being their only islander. I recognized faces and landscapes; I saw acquaintances/strangers, smells, houses, the comfort kitchen. I relived the poetics of belonging to a place.
Living on an island is, at the same time, resisting or letting yourself be seduced by its horizon and having the idea of ​​escape and refuge in the same proportions, involved in the same desire. An islander is a survivor of himself, every day.
An island is like a mother, sometimes with a thousand arms to the heart, sometimes with a thousand arrows until it hardens or hurts.”

Inauguration on May 18 at 18h.
The show is open until July 8th, every day, from 10h to 19h.

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.

MUSEUM | CCB Reopens to te Public | Belém | FREE-5€ @ CCB | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Museums. Remember those things? They used to be boring. Until you couldn’t visit them anymore. Then you started to miss them…
Well, guess what? Monday, May 18th happens to be International Museum Day. And, to celebrate (seeing that Portugal has been handling the global pandemic thing relatively well), many of Lisbon’s museums are cautiously opening some of its doors — provided that you don’t act like a dumbass.

One such museum is Centro Cultural de Belem (CCB). And here’s what they say:
“Garagem Sul CCB reopens on International Museum Day, with the exhibition O Mar É a Nossa Terra (“The Sea is Our Land”), with free entry. After that day, it is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 5 pm.
Now, all visitors can walk through the exhibition accompanied by an explanatory audio guide, accessible via your mobile phone (we recommend that you bring your headphones).
For the youngest, we designed an “actividário”, a set of challenges and puzzles that lead families to discover the secrets of the Portuguese coastline.
The attendance to the public at the Ticket Office is resumed, between 3 pm and 8 pm, although the rule of preference for information and return of tickets by non-face-to-face means remains, as a contention measure of contagion.

The Berardo Collection Museum reopens to the public, under the conditions defined by FAMC-CB.

#CCBCidadeDigital will continue to make digital content freely available, every week, on Wednesdays and Fridays.”

This, perhaps, may have been provided because it already belongs to another island; the abstract idea of ​​having lived there in times, even though it never happened, in a kind of catharsis, an ancestral feeling of belonging.
This trip alerted me to more questions than answers. We are all islands and within them the fragility of almost always being their only islander. I recognized faces and landscapes; I saw acquaintances/strangers, smells, houses, the comfort kitchen. I relived the poetics of belonging to a place.
Living on an island is, at the same time, resisting or letting yourself be seduced by its horizon and having the idea of ​​escape and refuge in the same proportions, involved in the same desire. An islander is a survivor of himself, every day.
An island is like a mother, sometimes with a thousand arms to the heart, sometimes with a thousand arrows until it hardens or hurts.”

Inauguration on May 18 at 18h.
The show is open until July 8th, every day, from 10h to 19h.

It seems that art has been on the periphery in recent months and that we have all been surviving on some surreal, pandemic-ridden island… Well, that’s about to change.
The Arte Periférica reopens its doors on May 18 — which is coincidentally International Museum Day 2020 and marks the gallery’s 29th anniversary. For this special day the gallery will hold the inauguration of “Como sobreviver a uma ilha” (“How to survive an island”) by artist Paulo Damião.

MUSEUM | CCB Reopens to te Public | Belém | FREE-5€ @ CCB | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Museums. Remember those things? They used to be boring. Until you couldn’t visit them anymore. Then you started to miss them…
Well, guess what? Monday, May 18th happens to be International Museum Day. And, to celebrate (seeing that Portugal has been handling the global pandemic thing relatively well), many of Lisbon’s museums are cautiously opening some of its doors — provided that you don’t act like a dumbass.

One such museum is Centro Cultural de Belem (CCB). And here’s what they say:
“Garagem Sul CCB reopens on International Museum Day, with the exhibition O Mar É a Nossa Terra (“The Sea is Our Land”), with free entry. After that day, it is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 5 pm.
Now, all visitors can walk through the exhibition accompanied by an explanatory audio guide, accessible via your mobile phone (we recommend that you bring your headphones).
For the youngest, we designed an “actividário”, a set of challenges and puzzles that lead families to discover the secrets of the Portuguese coastline.
The attendance to the public at the Ticket Office is resumed, between 3 pm and 8 pm, although the rule of preference for information and return of tickets by non-face-to-face means remains, as a contention measure of contagion.

The Berardo Collection Museum reopens to the public, under the conditions defined by FAMC-CB.

#CCBCidadeDigital will continue to make digital content freely available, every week, on Wednesdays and Fridays.”

It seems that art has been on the periphery in recent months and that we have all been surviving on some surreal, pandemic-ridden island… Well, that’s about to change.
The Arte Periférica reopens its doors on May 18 — which is coincidentally International Museum Day 2020 and marks the gallery’s 29th anniversary. For this special day the gallery will hold the inauguration of “Como sobreviver a uma ilha” (“How to survive an island”) by artist Paulo Damião.
Here’s how Paulo describes it:
“This exhibition comes as a result of a trip I made to an island: Ireland. It is also, of course, the reflection of the effect that this physical, emotional, and spiritual journey had on me. This, perhaps, may have been provided because it already belongs to another island; the abstract idea of ​​having lived there in times, even though it never happened, in a kind of catharsis, an ancestral feeling of belonging.
This trip alerted me to more questions than answers. We are all islands and within them the fragility of almost always being their only islander. I recognized faces and landscapes; I saw acquaintances/strangers, smells, houses, the comfort kitchen. I relived the poetics of belonging to a place.
Living on an island is, at the same time, resisting or letting yourself be seduced by its horizon and having the idea of ​​escape and refuge in the same proportions, involved in the same desire. An islander is a survivor of himself, every day.
An island is like a mother, sometimes with a thousand arms to the heart, sometimes with a thousand arrows until it hardens or hurts.”

Inauguration on May 18 at 18h.
The show is open until July 8th, every day, from 10h to 19h.

Museums. Remember those things? They used to be boring. Until you couldn’t visit them anymore. Then you started to miss them…
Well, guess what? Monday, May 18th happens to be International Museum Day. And, to celebrate (seeing that Portugal has been handling the global pandemic thing relatively well), many of Lisbon’s museums are cautiously opening some of its doors — provided that you don’t act like a dumbass.

One such museum is Centro Cultural de Belem (CCB). And here’s what they say:
“Garagem Sul CCB reopens on International Museum Day, with the exhibition O Mar É a Nossa Terra (“The Sea is Our Land”), with free entry. After that day, it is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 5 pm.
Now, all visitors can walk through the exhibition accompanied by an explanatory audio guide, accessible via your mobile phone (we recommend that you bring your headphones).
For the youngest, we designed an “actividário”, a set of challenges and puzzles that lead families to discover the secrets of the Portuguese coastline.
The attendance to the public at the Ticket Office is resumed, between 3 pm and 8 pm, although the rule of preference for information and return of tickets by non-face-to-face means remains, as a contention measure of contagion.
