Lisbon Art Weekend presents its second edition from November 13 to 15
This weekend, from November 13 to 15, the Lisbon art scene presents itself through the initiative brought by Marc Kean Paker and Merve Pakyürek at the end of 2019. It is the second edition of Lisbon Art Weekend, an event that aims to “celebrate the Portuguese contemporary art scene” in the capital – even in a year as unusual as this.
Over 80 national and international artists will show their work within 26 exhibition spaces that are part of the Lisbon art circuit. In addition to these exhibitions, the event’s program includes several related activities: performances, studio visits, online talks, among others.
In 2020, Lisbon Art Weekend invites you to visit solo and group exhibitions now on view in some of the art spaces already included in last year’s program, to which they added a few more – here is the list: 3+1 Arte Contemporânea, AZAN, Balcony – Contemporary Art Gallery, Belo Campo, Carpintarias de São Lázaro, Cristina Guerra Contemporary Art, DUPLEX | Artists in Residence, Galeria 111, Galeria Belo-Galsterer, Galeria Bruno Múrias, Galeria Filomena Soares, Galeria Foco, Galeria Francisco Fino, Galeria Miguel Nabinho, Galeria Vera Cortês, Galeria Zé dos Bois, Galerias Municipais/EGEAC (Galeria Avenida da Índia and Pavilhão Branco), Kunsthalle Lissabon, Madragoa, MONITOR Lisbon, MOVART, NO·NO Gallery, SOKYO Lisbon, Thirdbase Studio, UMA LULIK__ and Underdogs Gallery.
There is a route that connects the most relevant contemporary art shows in the capital, featuring Ad Minoliti, Adrien Missika, Ana + Betânia, Ana Jotta, Ana Pérez-Quiroga, António Bolota, Ascânio MMM, Daniel V. Melim, Fernanda Fragateiro, Horácio Frutuoso, João Ferro Martins, Kimiyo Mishima, Mário Belém, Rodrigo Hernández, Rosana Ricalde, among many others.
Daniel V. Melim (MONITOR Lisbon) and Gustavo Sumpta (Carpintarias de São Lázaro) will present two major performances. There will be art talks involving the artists represented in some of these exhibitions: Ana Jotta (Galeria Miguel Nabinho), Fernanda Fragateiro (Galeria Filomena Soares), João Ferro Martins (Pavilhão Branco), Renzo Marasca and Paulo Brighenti (Galeria Belo-Galsterer) or Rita GT (MOVART), for example.
Please note that some of the activities listed in the Lisbon Art Weekend’s program will have limited capacity and require pre-registration. Moreover, you should check the opening hours of the art spaces before visiting them, as the rules on circulation may imply significant changes (many visits will take place on Friday!). It is precisely to face the current restrictions that the event’s organization team decided to stream some of these activities through its online platforms (Instagram and YouTube).
