China.
You’ve probably heard of it.
And, if you live in Lisbon, you probably know that the Chinese are slowly taking over this fine land, real estate style. But the Chinese-Portuguese connection actually goes way back.

Here’s what the São Roque Museum, organizers of this cross-cultural and historical art exhibit, explain:
“The reign of King John V (1706-1750) corresponded to the reigns of three Qing Dynasty emperors (Kangxi, Yonzheng and Qianlong) and was one of the most intense and relevant periods of the relationship between Portugal, Europe, and China. This period was equally striking for Macao‘s history and its quality as an international trading port between two empires, the Portuguese and the Chinese. The exhibition One King and Three Emperors – Portugal, China and Macao in the time of D. João V, curated by Jorge Santos Alves, marks the 40th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Portugal and China, the 20th anniversary of the transfer of powers in Macau, and the 450th anniversary of the Macao Holy House of Mercy.

VISITING HOURS:
Monday: 14h-18h.
Tuesday to Sunday: 10h-12h and 14h-18h.

It’s unclear what to expect from any art show but this one, in particular, has piqued our curiosity with its description: labyrinths, honey, ladies, archeology, games, engineered yarn, and digital spaces? Oh yes. All that and more await at this wacky show by Lisboeta artist André Sier in São Bento. We think.

“Lady of the Labyrinth’s Honey” is first expression, archaeological, that guards the entrance of the first human labyrinths, before which are performed offerings of eusocial nectar, to the lady of the labyrinth, craving for safe passage before the first lethal device of serious and spacial games, in times where non-human aspects guide the sphere of human cosmos. This exhibition accounts for electronic and digital explorations in the footpath of the environment which braces the mythical engineered yarn: it proposes artifacts under the form of machinic drawings originating from non-human sources, abstract sculptures of the players, photographs and devices of bio-electronic aggregates, vegetable paintings with maps of played games, interactive visualizations of animal spaces, and a videogame, for two players. Daedalus, Ariadne, Minos, Theseus, Pasiphae, Asterion, and many others, dance and play, cyclically, in the virtual gardens of the lady of the labyrinth.

André Sier works artistically with code, electronic, interactive, digital and conventional media, where he combines video games, installations, painting, sculpture, music, mathematics and computation in objects and electronic arts experiments, in which he fuses mythology, interfaces, spatiotemporal continuums. generative, human-nonhuman art-science constructs. Award-winning artist at New Art Fest (2017), three times at Lisbon Maker Faire (2014, 15, 16), Cerveira Biennial (2009) and Jovens Criadores (2006). For the last 22 years, he has been producing objects and serial interactive work, which playfully unveil spatial-temporal relationships synthesized in electronic substrates, shown in more than 27 national and international solo exhibitions, over 100 exhibitions and collective events. He has exhibited works at the MNAC (2017, 2016), São Roque Museum (2011), MEIAC (2006). André Sier is an electronic artist with a degree in science, arts, computing, a philosophy degree, a digital arts educator and he currently teaches at the University of Évora, and he is a Ph.D. student in techno-arts at Planetary Collegium.

Feb 20 @ 19:00 – 22:00
to Mar 7 | ART EXHIBIT | Tamara Alves: When the Rest of the World Has Gone to Sleep | Braço de Prata | FREE @ Underdogs 10 | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Tamara Alves was born in 1983. She holds a degree in Fine Arts and a Master’s in Contemporary Artistic Practices. She lives and works in Lisbon. Her murals can be found here and there around Lisbon but are not in your face; they’re easy to recognize because they’re good. Tamara prefers her canvas and show-space to be the street rather than art galleries.
That is, until now.

“When the Rest of the World Has Gone to Sleep” is Tamara’s first solo indoors exhibit, and the Underdogs 10 art gallery has the honor of housing it through March.
Here’s what they say about:
“‘… starving hysterical naked …’
Repeating over and over this line from the poem Howl by Allen Ginsberg in her mind while she works, like some sort of mantra, Tamara Alves has been weaving a narrative that celebrates in a raw, poetic way the primeval vitality of strong sensations, of an animal becoming, of brute passion, as opposed to rational deliberation.

Based on the idea that our instincts are what defines us, the artist presents in her first solo show at Underdogs a set of works painted on various media and in various formats – acrylic on canvas, watercolors, sketches with colored pencils – which, invoking a universe of (female) human and animal figures in interaction with the natural landscape and objects imbued with a strong symbolic charge (the car, in a clear allusion to the visceral passion explored by David Cronenberg in Crash), invite us to embrace feelings as a wild and untamed driving force. A universe where love, always love (which is wounds, pain, tears, but nevertheless pleasure, joy, ecstasy), can be the fruit of an impact, an accident, growing within us like a wildflower. A universe where the night is synonymous with release and fierceness when lovers meet and wolves set out.”

That’s right, kids.
And out come the wolves…
Go show some love.

Opening reception with the artist:
Friday, January 24th, 19h-22h.

Gallery hours:
Tuesday to Saturday, 14h-20h.

Exhibition on view until March 7th.

WEEKLY | MUSIC AND DANCE | Viva o Samba at Titanic Sur Mer | Cais do Sodré | 10€ @ Titanic Sur Mer | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

If you live in Lisbon, chances are you know at least one person that loves samba.
And if you’ve been down by the river on any given Sunday night lately, then you may have witnessed the madness that is Viva o Samba at Titanic Sur Mer.
If not — we highly recommend it.

The organizers describe it as “Europe’s most engaging cultural event,” and we’re tempted to agree.
They add:
“Everyone is invited.
Here our gratitude is expressed for so many shared joys, and all the positive vibrations that we’re emanating into the universe. We are all the resistance that samba needs to never be forgotten; or, rather, always remembered.
Come on!”

Stop by any Sunday through March and witness the magic for yourself.
It’s definitely a night to remember.

ENTRY: 10€.

Here’s a glimpse of the madness.

China.
You’ve probably heard of it.
And, if you live in Lisbon, you probably know that the Chinese are slowly taking over this fine land, real estate style. But the Chinese-Portuguese connection actually goes way back.

Here’s what the São Roque Museum, organizers of this cross-cultural and historical art exhibit, explain:
“The reign of King John V (1706-1750) corresponded to the reigns of three Qing Dynasty emperors (Kangxi, Yonzheng and Qianlong) and was one of the most intense and relevant periods of the relationship between Portugal, Europe, and China. This period was equally striking for Macao‘s history and its quality as an international trading port between two empires, the Portuguese and the Chinese. The exhibition One King and Three Emperors – Portugal, China and Macao in the time of D. João V, curated by Jorge Santos Alves, marks the 40th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Portugal and China, the 20th anniversary of the transfer of powers in Macau, and the 450th anniversary of the Macao Holy House of Mercy.

to Mar 30 | FILM CYCLE | Silent Cinema at Casa da Achada | Mouraria | FREE @ Casa da Achada | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

If there’s any hope left for Lisbon in the face of genocidal gentrification, rampant inequality, unintentional rape by tourists and landlords, and general good old-fashioned capitalist decay, that hope is, and has been for a thousand years, the neighborhood of Mouraria.

And tucked away in the seldom-accessed-by-tuk-tuk heart of this haven of character is Casa da Achada, a non-profit cultural organization opened a decade ago to honor and continue the legacy of local artist, writer, critic, and teacher of Portuguese Mário Dionísio.

One of the many cool things the “House of the Found” does is free silent oldie film screenings every Monday night. They’re usually preceded by a guest speaker, and have Portuguese subtitles.

*The socialist fun commences at 21h30, and seating is limited.

**Make sure to bundle up this time of year as, due to capitalism, there is no heating.

“Forró is a party that originated in the northeastern region of Brazil…on farms and plantations, where farmers and workers used to sing to the cows and with each other as they gathered coffee and other crops like sugarcane, corn, and vegetables…”

Cows…
hmm.

Anyhoo.
Forró do Piano returns to OOD Trindade in 2020, for its second season, to help you welcome the new decade with some Brazilian tunes.

This time around they host Lisbon musicians Cicero Mateus, João Ventura, Marcelo Guerini, and Luciano Alves. House Dj Jader Mansano keeps the evening going between sets.

China.
You’ve probably heard of it.
And, if you live in Lisbon, you probably know that the Chinese are slowly taking over this fine land, real estate style. But the Chinese-Portuguese connection actually goes way back.

Here’s what the São Roque Museum, organizers of this cross-cultural and historical art exhibit, explain:
“The reign of King John V (1706-1750) corresponded to the reigns of three Qing Dynasty emperors (Kangxi, Yonzheng and Qianlong) and was one of the most intense and relevant periods of the relationship between Portugal, Europe, and China. This period was equally striking for Macao‘s history and its quality as an international trading port between two empires, the Portuguese and the Chinese. The exhibition One King and Three Emperors – Portugal, China and Macao in the time of D. João V, curated by Jorge Santos Alves, marks the 40th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Portugal and China, the 20th anniversary of the transfer of powers in Macau, and the 450th anniversary of the Macao Holy House of Mercy.

Tamara Alves was born in 1983. She holds a degree in Fine Arts and a Master’s in Contemporary Artistic Practices. She lives and works in Lisbon. Her murals can be found here and there around Lisbon but are not in your face; they’re easy to recognize because they’re good. Tamara prefers her canvas and show-space to be the street rather than art galleries.
That is, until now.

“When the Rest of the World Has Gone to Sleep” is Tamara’s first solo indoors exhibit, and the Underdogs 10 art gallery has the honor of housing it through March.
Here’s what they say about:
“‘… starving hysterical naked …’
Repeating over and over this line from the poem Howl by Allen Ginsberg in her mind while she works, like some sort of mantra, Tamara Alves has been weaving a narrative that celebrates in a raw, poetic way the primeval vitality of strong sensations, of an animal becoming, of brute passion, as opposed to rational deliberation.

Based on the idea that our instincts are what defines us, the artist presents in her first solo show at Underdogs a set of works painted on various media and in various formats – acrylic on canvas, watercolors, sketches with colored pencils – which, invoking a universe of (female) human and animal figures in interaction with the natural landscape and objects imbued with a strong symbolic charge (the car, in a clear allusion to the visceral passion explored by David Cronenberg in Crash), invite us to embrace feelings as a wild and untamed driving force. A universe where love, always love (which is wounds, pain, tears, but nevertheless pleasure, joy, ecstasy), can be the fruit of an impact, an accident, growing within us like a wildflower. A universe where the night is synonymous with release and fierceness when lovers meet and wolves set out.”

That’s right, kids.
And out come the wolves…
Go show some love.

It’s unclear what to expect from any art show but this one, in particular, has piqued our curiosity with its description: labyrinths, honey, ladies, archeology, games, engineered yarn, and digital spaces? Oh yes. All that and more await at this wacky show by Lisboeta artist André Sier in São Bento. We think.

“Lady of the Labyrinth’s Honey” is first expression, archaeological, that guards the entrance of the first human labyrinths, before which are performed offerings of eusocial nectar, to the lady of the labyrinth, craving for safe passage before the first lethal device of serious and spacial games, in times where non-human aspects guide the sphere of human cosmos. This exhibition accounts for electronic and digital explorations in the footpath of the environment which braces the mythical engineered yarn: it proposes artifacts under the form of machinic drawings originating from non-human sources, abstract sculptures of the players, photographs and devices of bio-electronic aggregates, vegetable paintings with maps of played games, interactive visualizations of animal spaces, and a videogame, for two players. Daedalus, Ariadne, Minos, Theseus, Pasiphae, Asterion, and many others, dance and play, cyclically, in the virtual gardens of the lady of the labyrinth.

André Sier works artistically with code, electronic, interactive, digital and conventional media, where he combines video games, installations, painting, sculpture, music, mathematics and computation in objects and electronic arts experiments, in which he fuses mythology, interfaces, spatiotemporal continuums. generative, human-nonhuman art-science constructs. Award-winning artist at New Art Fest (2017), three times at Lisbon Maker Faire (2014, 15, 16), Cerveira Biennial (2009) and Jovens Criadores (2006). For the last 22 years, he has been producing objects and serial interactive work, which playfully unveil spatial-temporal relationships synthesized in electronic substrates, shown in more than 27 national and international solo exhibitions, over 100 exhibitions and collective events. He has exhibited works at the MNAC (2017, 2016), São Roque Museum (2011), MEIAC (2006). André Sier is an electronic artist with a degree in science, arts, computing, a philosophy degree, a digital arts educator and he currently teaches at the University of Évora, and he is a Ph.D. student in techno-arts at Planetary Collegium.

WEEKLY | MUSIC AND DANCE | Viva o Samba at Titanic Sur Mer | Cais do Sodré | 10€ @ Titanic Sur Mer | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

If you live in Lisbon, chances are you know at least one person that loves samba.
And if you’ve been down by the river on any given Sunday night lately, then you may have witnessed the madness that is Viva o Samba at Titanic Sur Mer.
If not — we highly recommend it.

The organizers describe it as “Europe’s most engaging cultural event,” and we’re tempted to agree.
They add:
“Everyone is invited.
Here our gratitude is expressed for so many shared joys, and all the positive vibrations that we’re emanating into the universe. We are all the resistance that samba needs to never be forgotten; or, rather, always remembered.
Come on!”

Stop by any Sunday through March and witness the magic for yourself.
It’s definitely a night to remember.

ENTRY: 10€.

Here’s a glimpse of the madness.

China.
You’ve probably heard of it.
And, if you live in Lisbon, you probably know that the Chinese are slowly taking over this fine land, real estate style. But the Chinese-Portuguese connection actually goes way back.

Here’s what the São Roque Museum, organizers of this cross-cultural and historical art exhibit, explain:
“The reign of King John V (1706-1750) corresponded to the reigns of three Qing Dynasty emperors (Kangxi, Yonzheng and Qianlong) and was one of the most intense and relevant periods of the relationship between Portugal, Europe, and China. This period was equally striking for Macao‘s history and its quality as an international trading port between two empires, the Portuguese and the Chinese. The exhibition One King and Three Emperors – Portugal, China and Macao in the time of D. João V, curated by Jorge Santos Alves, marks the 40th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Portugal and China, the 20th anniversary of the transfer of powers in Macau, and the 450th anniversary of the Macao Holy House of Mercy.

VISITING HOURS:

to Mar 30 | FILM CYCLE | Silent Cinema at Casa da Achada | Mouraria | FREE @ Casa da Achada | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

If there’s any hope left for Lisbon in the face of genocidal gentrification, rampant inequality, unintentional rape by tourists and landlords, and general good old-fashioned capitalist decay, that hope is, and has been for a thousand years, the neighborhood of Mouraria.

And tucked away in the seldom-accessed-by-tuk-tuk heart of this haven of character is Casa da Achada, a non-profit cultural organization opened a decade ago to honor and continue the legacy of local artist, writer, critic, and teacher of Portuguese Mário Dionísio.

One of the many cool things the “House of the Found” does is free silent oldie film screenings every Monday night. They’re usually preceded by a guest speaker, and have Portuguese subtitles.

*The socialist fun commences at 21h30, and seating is limited.

**Make sure to bundle up this time of year as, due to capitalism, there is no heating.

Mar 3 @ 19:00 – 22:00
to Mar 7 | ART EXHIBIT | Tamara Alves: When the Rest of the World Has Gone to Sleep | Braço de Prata | FREE @ Underdogs 10 | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Tamara Alves was born in 1983. She holds a degree in Fine Arts and a Master’s in Contemporary Artistic Practices. She lives and works in Lisbon. Her murals can be found here and there around Lisbon but are not in your face; they’re easy to recognize because they’re good. Tamara prefers her canvas and show-space to be the street rather than art galleries.
That is, until now.

“When the Rest of the World Has Gone to Sleep” is Tamara’s first solo indoors exhibit, and the Underdogs 10 art gallery has the honor of housing it through March.
Here’s what they say about:
“‘… starving hysterical naked …’
Repeating over and over this line from the poem Howl by Allen Ginsberg in her mind while she works, like some sort of mantra, Tamara Alves has been weaving a narrative that celebrates in a raw, poetic way the primeval vitality of strong sensations, of an animal becoming, of brute passion, as opposed to rational deliberation.

Based on the idea that our instincts are what defines us, the artist presents in her first solo show at Underdogs a set of works painted on various media and in various formats – acrylic on canvas, watercolors, sketches with colored pencils – which, invoking a universe of (female) human and animal figures in interaction with the natural landscape and objects imbued with a strong symbolic charge (the car, in a clear allusion to the visceral passion explored by David Cronenberg in Crash), invite us to embrace feelings as a wild and untamed driving force. A universe where love, always love (which is wounds, pain, tears, but nevertheless pleasure, joy, ecstasy), can be the fruit of an impact, an accident, growing within us like a wildflower. A universe where the night is synonymous with release and fierceness when lovers meet and wolves set out.”

That’s right, kids.
And out come the wolves…
Go show some love.

Opening reception with the artist:
Friday, January 24th, 19h-22h.

Gallery hours:
Tuesday to Saturday, 14h-20h.

Exhibition on view until March 7th.

Bi-Weekly | OPEN MIC | Shaka’s Tuesday night at Camones Cinebar | Graça | FREE
Mar 3 @ 19:30 – 23:00
Bi-Weekly | OPEN MIC | Shaka's Tuesday night at Camones Cinebar | Graça | FREE @ Camones CineBar | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Open mics are traditionally a sh.tshow.
But the host of this one, Joaquim de Brito, aka Shaka, however, is a local legend, a musically speaking jack of all trades, a semi-god among men, and an overall nice fella. And Claudia — office-worker turned badass bar-tender/-owner, pro at making anyone feel at home with her smile, and woman behind low-key chill spot Camones Cinebar — is the yin to Shaka’s yang.

Their bi-weekly “open mic for all arts, all ages” stands out. Here, people actually come for the mic part. It is still open mic, which means that most of the art… leaves much to be desired. But at least someone’s listening. Every other Tuesday throughout the year.

NOTE: If you want to perform (or just get a seat), get there and/or sign up early. It’s usually a full house by 20h.

Every other Tuesday, starting at 19h30.

All ages and art forms welcome.
