What do you think of when you hear the word “cute”? Dogs? Cat videos? Ryan Gosling? Jennifer Lawrence? The relationship between presidents Trump and Putin?
It’s a word that is used every day, but it is difficult to define.
Here’s what the curators of this new show tell us:
“The exhibition “Pálpembrana” (“Plexus”) by Portuguese artist Alice dos Reis, presents several sculptures, installations and two films, all in line with the research and reflection that the artist recently developed in her Master’s thesis, “Slimy Fillings.”
The thesis, as well as the work she presents, seeks to analyze the relationship between cute, or things considered cute, with ideas of power and oppression, thus investigating the intersection of aesthetics with new technologies, with interactions online, with gender policies, surveillance and work, ultimately proposing cuteness as a radical aesthetic.”
Aaaw…You had us at “slimy fillings.”
Gallery hours are:
Tue – Fri: 10h-13h; 14h-17h30;
Sat – Sun: 14h-18h (last entry at 17h30).
Entry is free, which is kind of cute too.
