October 6 @ 10:00 - November 14 @ 18:00€4,50
Here’s what curator João Biscainho has to say about O Caminho para a Luz porque Passa pela Luz (or, “The Pathway to the Light as It Goes along the Light”), a group show where 17 local artists do things to your brain using light:
“The exhibition, its title taken from a 1980 poem by Alberto de Lacerda, opens a new space in the National Museum of Contemporary Art, the ‘Galeria Millennium bcp.’
‘The Pathway to the Light as It Goes along the Light’ unfolds into two lines of research. One works on the different forms of spatial representation and composition as notation strategies for mental, sound, or literary spaces, but also as prototypes of the notion of virtual reality. The other expands the more traditional languages of representation, based on knowledge of neurosciences, presenting works that induce the viewer to certain mental states or sensations. In other cases, it is the artists and spectators who substantiate the works from their own electrical brain activity as poetic, sound, or visual language.”
The show is up* until Nov. 14.
*NOTE: The museum is free on Sundays but closed on Mondays.
ENTRY: 4,50€ (includes museum visit).
