to July 31 | GROUP ART EXHIBIT | Leap of Faith | Estrela | FREE
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!”
