to Nov 9 | ARTIST SPACE OPENING | Trailer by MONO: Opening Party and Exhibition | Intendente | FREE
It’s refreshing when a run-down, long-abandoned, beautiful space in Lisbon is rejuvenated and reopened to the public — but reopened not as a hotel, luxury apartment, luxury apartment complex, vegan restaurant, or AirBnB, but as a place for art. Because it reminds us that, despite the ruthlessness of capitalism and the elusiveness of gentrification, the future remains unwritten…
MONO is such a space. Launched earlier this month by artists, local and other, it includes an exhibition space, studio spaces, and residency options for artists from all over the world, in the heart of the city.
Here’s how they describe their opening party this Friday night:
“It’s a trailer, a preview, an amuse-bouche*!!!
(Atlas: *which is like an amuse-gueule, which is like an appetizer.)
MONO is happy to invite you to its very first opening:
TRAILER, an exhibition showcasing the works of 12 artists, national and international.
Along with the art, there will be refreshments and music by Lisbon-based DJs.”
Let’s hope the trailer will prove to be worthy of the movie.
OPENING PARTY AND INAUGURATION:
*The show is up until November 9th, but — as the space is new — check back on MONO’s main page for viewing hours and updated deets.
