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.

Music is life.
Everybody knows that.
But whenever the proverbial sh.t hits the proverbial fan, it seems that toilet paper becomes life. So musicians get hit pretty hard. And the fans get hit too…

If you are a fan of music and have enough toilet paper, “online music magazine curated by musicholics” Where The Music Meets has a nifty alternative for going to a live gig. They call it At Your Home, and here’s what they say:

“Due to this situation, many musicians and music promoters are struggling to make their living. The amount of canceled shows and festivals drains life from the music industry but also from live music consumers.

Where the Music Meets launches At Your Home platform in an attempt to give some love back to the musicians and at the same time helping to fight the cause. Every day we will broadcast live music shows recorded directly from musicians houses. No matter the technology. No matter the production. No matter the genre. No matter the projection of each act. We are all in this together.

Donations will be accepted during the shows and directed to the artists themselves. Also, a portion of those donations will be given to Project Open Air, to help in the matter of working on medical devices battling the COVID-19 virus (such as open-source ventilators), in orfer to have a fast and easy solution that can be reproduced and assembled locally worldwide.

Shows will happen every day until we get out of this situation.”

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.”

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.

to Aug 29 | ART EXHIBIT | Parágrafo by Marco Franco | Bairro Alto | FREE @ Galeria Zé dos Bois | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Marco Franco was born in Lisbon in 1972. He started his musical career in 1986, dabbling in rock, jazz, and percussion. In 2006 he formed the band Mikado Lab, with whom he released two albums. He’s also dabbled in dance, theater, cinema, and visual art. He is well known in Portugal. And he really likes his hat.

For the last five years, Marco has been transferring music back to paper, the result of which is roughly 100 enigmatic works on paper. This summer, corona-surviving art gallery ZDB presents said works in Parágrafo (“Paragraph”), Marco’s first solo art exhibit.

Here’s how ZDB describes it:
“Best known for his vast musical career… Marco Franco has been revealing another side of his artistic production, which crystallizes in this exhibition… This is a practice that accompanies him daily, arising from experimentation and repetition in graphic recording exercises, carried out in an almost compulsive way, which gives rise to a series of visual compositions that reveal a language, created by Marco, in which calligraphic and melodic gestures intersect.”

Gallery hours*:
Wednesday to Saturday, 15h-19h.
Show up until August 29th.
*Masks are mandatory, hats are optional.

Here’s Marco, his hat, and a piano.

to July 31 | GROUP ART EXHIBIT | Leap of Faith | Estrela | FREE @ NO·NO contemporary art gallery | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Coronavirus has not been good to the world at large, and that especially includes the art world. That’s just the sad truth. But, as Nietzsche once pointed out, we have art in order to not die of the truth. And while full-blown art exhibits are still a major no-no here in Lisbon because people might actually die of art, certain survivor locals of the artistic variety, in a leap of faith, are starting to emerge from the wreckage.

Here’s what new gallery space NO-NO (formerly ACERVO), organizers of Leap of Faith, tell us:
“This past February 14th was the last day of activity of ACERVO in its original facilities. It is with great pleasure that we announce a new date for the opening of NO·NO in our new space at Rua de Santo António à Estrela 39A.
We will launch this new cycle with the group show LEAP OF FAITH (curated by Miguel Mesquita), with works by Ana Pérez-Quiroga, Ana Rebordão, Carlos Arteiro, Carlos Mensil, Catarina Real, Diogo Bolota, Filipe Cortez, Gema Rupérez, Januário Jano, Magda Delgado, Mariana Caló + Francisco Queimadela, Pedro Pascoinho, and Pablo Barreiro.

Last-minute details for the opening will be on our new website, which we will also launch on the 25th.

*In accordance with the recommendations of the DGS (General Health Direction) for the gradual resumption of activity in cultural spaces, the gallery has defined an internal manual of procedures and a small set of safety rules that we ask you to observe for the good of all:
· mandatory use of face mask inside the gallery;
· hand disinfection at the entrance with disinfectant gel provided by the gallery;
· for security reasons it will not be possible to use the gallery’s bathroom ;
· the number of people inside the gallery will be limited to 4, gallery staff included.

**In order to ensure this last point while avoiding uncomfortable situations in which we cannot receive someone, visits to the gallery will depend on prior booking. Until the current state of exception is lifted, the gallery will operate at the following work hours :
May 25 : 11 am – 1 pm / 2 pm – 7 pm
(by appointment by mail to [email protected] until May 24)
May 26 – July 31: Tue – Fri : 2 – 7 pm / Sat : 2 – 5 pm
(also by appointment. however, all you need is to contact us by phone up to 30 minutes in advance: +351 91 363 90 28)

It will not be the opening we had prepared, but it will not be less special. We look most forward to having you over!”

Hennessy’s is a longtime friend of Atlas because of the people behind it, as well as it being a great place to eat, drink, and be merry, Irish style. So we were relieved to learn that it is still standing in the wake of you know what. Now that its doors have reopened to the public, here’s what they say about Wednesday nights:
“If you have a talent the OPEN MIC is the right time and place to show it. Come have fun every Wednesday night and meet our local artists.”

Well, to be fair, even if you don’t have talent, the OPEN MIC — Hennessy’s or elsewhere — is still the right time and place to show it.

Everybody knows that.
But whenever the proverbial sh.t hits the proverbial fan, it seems that toilet paper becomes life. So musicians get hit pretty hard. And the fans get hit too…

If you are a fan of music and have enough toilet paper, “online music magazine curated by musicholics” Where The Music Meets has a nifty alternative for going to a live gig. They call it At Your Home, and here’s what they say:

“Due to this situation, many musicians and music promoters are struggling to make their living. The amount of canceled shows and festivals drains life from the music industry but also from live music consumers.

Where the Music Meets launches At Your Home platform in an attempt to give some love back to the musicians and at the same time helping to fight the cause. Every day we will broadcast live music shows recorded directly from musicians houses. No matter the technology. No matter the production. No matter the genre. No matter the projection of each act. We are all in this together.

Donations will be accepted during the shows and directed to the artists themselves. Also, a portion of those donations will be given to Project Open Air, to help in the matter of working on medical devices battling the COVID-19 virus (such as open-source ventilators), in orfer to have a fast and easy solution that can be reproduced and assembled locally worldwide.

Shows will happen every day until we get out of this situation.”

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.”

Coronavirus has not been good to the world at large, and that especially includes the art world. That’s just the sad truth. But, as Nietzsche once pointed out, we have art in order to not die of the truth. And while full-blown art exhibits are still a major no-no here in Lisbon because people might actually die of art, certain survivor locals of the artistic variety, in a leap of faith, are starting to emerge from the wreckage.

Here’s what new gallery space NO-NO (formerly ACERVO), organizers of Leap of Faith, tell us:
“This past February 14th was the last day of activity of ACERVO in its original facilities. It is with great pleasure that we announce a new date for the opening of NO·NO in our new space at Rua de Santo António à Estrela 39A.
We will launch this new cycle with the group show LEAP OF FAITH (curated by Miguel Mesquita), with works by Ana Pérez-Quiroga, Ana Rebordão, Carlos Arteiro, Carlos Mensil, Catarina Real, Diogo Bolota, Filipe Cortez, Gema Rupérez, Januário Jano, Magda Delgado, Mariana Caló + Francisco Queimadela, Pedro Pascoinho, and Pablo Barreiro.

Last-minute details for the opening will be on our new website, which we will also launch on the 25th.

*In accordance with the recommendations of the DGS (General Health Direction) for the gradual resumption of activity in cultural spaces, the gallery has defined an internal manual of procedures and a small set of safety rules that we ask you to observe for the good of all:
· mandatory use of face mask inside the gallery;
· hand disinfection at the entrance with disinfectant gel provided by the gallery;
· for security reasons it will not be possible to use the gallery’s bathroom ;
· the number of people inside the gallery will be limited to 4, gallery staff included.

**In order to ensure this last point while avoiding uncomfortable situations in which we cannot receive someone, visits to the gallery will depend on prior booking. Until the current state of exception is lifted, the gallery will operate at the following work hours :
May 25 : 11 am – 1 pm / 2 pm – 7 pm
(by appointment by mail to [email protected] until May 24)
May 26 – July 31: Tue – Fri : 2 – 7 pm / Sat : 2 – 5 pm
(also by appointment. however, all you need is to contact us by phone up to 30 minutes in advance: +351 91 363 90 28)

It will not be the opening we had prepared, but it will not be less special. We look most forward to having you over!”

to Aug 29 | ART EXHIBIT | Parágrafo by Marco Franco | Bairro Alto | FREE @ Galeria Zé dos Bois | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Marco Franco was born in Lisbon in 1972. He started his musical career in 1986, dabbling in rock, jazz, and percussion. In 2006 he formed the band Mikado Lab, with whom he released two albums. He’s also dabbled in dance, theater, cinema, and visual art. He is well known in Portugal. And he really likes his hat.

For the last five years, Marco has been transferring music back to paper, the result of which is roughly 100 enigmatic works on paper. This summer, corona-surviving art gallery ZDB presents said works in Parágrafo (“Paragraph”), Marco’s first solo art exhibit.

Here’s how ZDB describes it:
“Best known for his vast musical career… Marco Franco has been revealing another side of his artistic production, which crystallizes in this exhibition… This is a practice that accompanies him daily, arising from experimentation and repetition in graphic recording exercises, carried out in an almost compulsive way, which gives rise to a series of visual compositions that reveal a language, created by Marco, in which calligraphic and melodic gestures intersect.”

Gallery hours*:
Wednesday to Saturday, 15h-19h.
Show up until August 29th.
*Masks are mandatory, hats are optional.

FREE ENTRY.

And while full-blown art exhibits are still a major no-no here in Lisbon because people might actually die of art, certain survivor locals of the artistic variety, in a leap of faith, are starting to emerge from the wreckage.

Here’s what new gallery space NO-NO (formerly ACERVO), organizers of Leap of Faith, tell us:
“This past February 14th was the last day of activity of ACERVO in its original facilities. It is with great pleasure that we announce a new date for the opening of NO·NO in our new space at Rua de Santo António à Estrela 39A.
We will launch this new cycle with the group show LEAP OF FAITH (curated by Miguel Mesquita), with works by Ana Pérez-Quiroga, Ana Rebordão, Carlos Arteiro, Carlos Mensil, Catarina Real, Diogo Bolota, Filipe Cortez, Gema Rupérez, Januário Jano, Magda Delgado, Mariana Caló + Francisco Queimadela, Pedro Pascoinho, and Pablo Barreiro.

Last-minute details for the opening will be on our new website, which we will also launch on the 25th.

*In accordance with the recommendations of the DGS (General Health Direction) for the gradual resumption of activity in cultural spaces, the gallery has defined an internal manual of procedures and a small set of safety rules that we ask you to observe for the good of all:
· mandatory use of face mask inside the gallery;
· hand disinfection at the entrance with disinfectant gel provided by the gallery;
· for security reasons it will not be possible to use the gallery’s bathroom ;
· the number of people inside the gallery will be limited to 4, gallery staff included.

**In order to ensure this last point while avoiding uncomfortable situations in which we cannot receive someone, visits to the gallery will depend on prior booking. Until the current state of exception is lifted, the gallery will operate at the following work hours :
May 25 : 11 am – 1 pm / 2 pm – 7 pm
(by appointment by mail to [email protected] until May 24)
May 26 – July 31: Tue – Fri : 2 – 7 pm / Sat : 2 – 5 pm
(also by appointment. however, all you need is to contact us by phone up to 30 minutes in advance: +351 91 363 90 28)

It will not be the opening we had prepared, but it will not be less special. We look most forward to having you over!”

Jul 15 @ 15:00 – 19:00
to Aug 29 | ART EXHIBIT | Parágrafo by Marco Franco | Bairro Alto | FREE @ Galeria Zé dos Bois | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Marco Franco was born in Lisbon in 1972. He started his musical career in 1986, dabbling in rock, jazz, and percussion. In 2006 he formed the band Mikado Lab, with whom he released two albums. He’s also dabbled in dance, theater, cinema, and visual art. He is well known in Portugal. And he really likes his hat.

For the last five years, Marco has been transferring music back to paper, the result of which is roughly 100 enigmatic works on paper. This summer, corona-surviving art gallery ZDB presents said works in Parágrafo (“Paragraph”), Marco’s first solo art exhibit.

Here’s how ZDB describes it:
“Best known for his vast musical career… Marco Franco has been revealing another side of his artistic production, which crystallizes in this exhibition… This is a practice that accompanies him daily, arising from experimentation and repetition in graphic recording exercises, carried out in an almost compulsive way, which gives rise to a series of visual compositions that reveal a language, created by Marco, in which calligraphic and melodic gestures intersect.”

Gallery hours*:
Wednesday to Saturday, 15h-19h.
Show up until August 29th.
*Masks are mandatory, hats are optional.

FREE ENTRY.

WEEKLY | LIVE MUSIC | Hennessy's Open Mic | Cais do Sodré | FREE @ Hennessy's Irish Pub | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Hennessy’s is a longtime friend of Atlas because of the people behind it, as well as it being a great place to eat, drink, and be merry, Irish style. So we were relieved to learn that it is still standing in the wake of you know what. Now that its doors have reopened to the public, here’s what they say about Wednesday nights:
“If you have a talent the OPEN MIC is the right time and place to show it. Come have fun every Wednesday night and meet our local artists.”

Well, to be fair, even if you don’t have talent, the OPEN MIC — Hennessy’s or elsewhere — is still the right time and place to show it.

MUSIC | AtYourHome | FREE (Donations Welcome)

Music is life.
Everybody knows that.
But whenever the proverbial sh.t hits the proverbial fan, it seems that toilet paper becomes life. So musicians get hit pretty hard. And the fans get hit too…

If you are a fan of music and have enough toilet paper, “online music magazine curated by musicholics” Where The Music Meets has a nifty alternative for going to a live gig. They call it At Your Home, and here’s what they say:

“Due to this situation, many musicians and music promoters are struggling to make their living. The amount of canceled shows and festivals drains life from the music industry but also from live music consumers.

Where the Music Meets launches At Your Home platform in an attempt to give some love back to the musicians and at the same time helping to fight the cause. Every day we will broadcast live music shows recorded directly from musicians houses. No matter the technology. No matter the production. No matter the genre. No matter the projection of each act. We are all in this together.

Donations will be accepted during the shows and directed to the artists themselves. Also, a portion of those donations will be given to Project Open Air, to help in the matter of working on medical devices battling the COVID-19 virus (such as open-source ventilators), in orfer to have a fast and easy solution that can be reproduced and assembled locally worldwide.

Shows will happen every day until we get out of this situation.”

FREE.
