1. Porto Municipal Gallery
The two new exhibition projects at Galeria Municipal do Porto can be visited between the 18th of September and the 21st of November, with free entry. The artist and curator Pedro G. Romero proposes a multidisciplinary project, developed by the Situationist International around the project “New Babylon” by Constant Nieuwenhuys. The exhibition 'The New Babylonians / Crossing the Border' explores ideas such as psychogeography, drift or unitary urbanism, in their relationship with nomadic groups, gypsy ethnic groups, flamencos, political exiles and libertarians. The exhibition project 'Pandemic / I Don't Know Karate, but I Know Ka-Razor!' it results from an invitation from the Municipal Gallery to Filipe Marques, to question concepts present in his work, such as fragility, revolt and self-destruction. Starting from a speculative exercise and self-reflection, the artist presents a world made of multiple layers and interpretations about the abyss of the unknown and uncertainty.
2. Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Museum in Amarante.
Director Pedro Almodóvar and painter Jorge Galindo present a shared painting exhibition at the Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Museum, in Amarante. The creative collaboration between both began with the commission of a drawing that the filmmaker made to the painter for the film 'Dor e Glória' (2019). Jorge Galindo was inspired by the vases of flowers he had nearby and, based on photographs by Almodóvar, they worked on large-format canvases, using strong colors.
3. MAAT in Lisbon
Between October 5th and February 28th, the monographic exhibition "DIA" by Carsten Höller is at the MAAT. This exhibition brings together a vast series of sculpture works with lamps, projections and architectural elements, covering Höller's artistic production, from 1987, when he was still working as a scientist, until today. From 26 to 28 November, Assembly II – Sounding Out will take place, based on long-term research work carried out by Andrea Bagnato and Ivan L. Munuera. Vulnerable Beings reflects on space and cohabitation from the perspective of infectious diseases. In a public assembly that will take place in two distinct periods, guests from different disciplines and contexts will gather at MAAT for an intense program of lectures, conversations, performances, film and music projections.
4. Exhibition "Os Algoritmos da Pintura" by Miguel Ângelo Marques in Caldas da Rainha
Between the 26th of November and the 31st of January 2021, the exhibition "Os Algoritmos da Pintura" by Miguel Ângelo Marques will be on display at the António Duarte das Caldas da Rainha Atelier-Museum. Curator João Terras stated about this exhibition:
"We will never be possible to reach the place that is distant from what we look at what we aim at. This constant parallax with which the human is externalized and seeks to find with the surrounding is the pathologies most perennial with which we learn to live. This will be the place of those who paint and those who poetize, even if for certain reasons we cannot ask this other why he paints or why he writes. Ultimately, he paints because he wants to see or writes because he wants to feel. Miguel Ângelo Marques' practice, as the practice of a painter or a poet, finds himself at the top of this parallax, acts because he has to act, feeds because he doesn't stop, registers because he doesn't think. from the forms and forms of the artist to whom the house bears its name. This segment of the margins will be the place where we will find his voyeur images, here, seen as elements of a nonconforming strangeness, ger I walk in the links of a new fiction, a new spectrum for the museum, looking at it in the shadow of its established objects, recapitulating it in the certainties and readings that we could find from this place already consummated. [...]"
