WITH FEET IN THE CLOUDS, by António Alonso Patent from April 2 to May 21 (Tuesday to Saturday | 10:00-18:00) Location: Centro Cultural de Lagos – Exhibition halls 2 and 3 Free entry António Alonso was born in Angola in 1960. He lives and works in Barão de São João, in the municipality of Lagos. As a plastic artist, he works with recyclable materials in experimentation. The artist’s works that will be present in this exhibition assume a force made up of explosive colors in shapes and rhythms aesthetically resolved by the experiences of spaces that influence his artistic decision. In the period of confinement, silence remained stable and pandemic isolation created so many doubts and so many certainties that inevitably influenced his creative process. In a frenetic and permanent production, Alonso reported the whole to his micro space in a short space challenge, to design an exhibition for the Centro Cultural de Lagos. He travels with an almost obsessive idea of finding objects and that is how his curricular universe results.
NOTES ON EMPATHY AND ALTERITY – COLLECTIVE EXHIBITION OF CONTEMPORARY ART Patent from April 2 to May 21 (Tuesday to Saturday | 10:00-18:00) Location: Lagos Cultural Center – Exhibition Hall 1 Free entry The pandemic context reinforced the need to consider the place of empathy, integrity and trust. This urgency, arising from individualism, disregard and dehumanization, is added to the confusion about what the word freedom means and to the growing difficulty in distinguishing between fact and opinion, between criticism and attack, or even between empathy and compassion. The identification of one subject with the other, feeling, desiring or learning like him, seeking to understand him through speculation or sensation and the most extraordinary and complex emotional competences. Because empathy is not compassion, sympathy or simply pity. It’s not exactly about being able to walk in someone else’s shoes, because this walk is not exempt from the prejudices and stereotypes we carry. Empathy can be seen as the understanding of the social self from a combination of outside-in and outside-out looks, without comparisons or projections resulting from personal experience. The exhibition aims to affirm an active path, where the interdisciplinarity and plurality of the selected works help to design a […]

According to the author, an Algarve photographer, “to photograph is to make a cut in time; it is, in a way, to stop it, the instant the camera’s shutter is released.

AUTO DA BARCA DO INFERNO Teatro do Bolhão TO HAVE. 17 MAY // 10:30 am/3:00 pm Tickets: 5€; Schools – 3€ Duration: 45′ // M/12 An emblematic text of Vincentian dramaturgy, Auto da Barca is a profound reflection on human behavior and on the passage of men in this world. Never, as in Barcas, were the Vincentian characters so densely characterized and so humanely portrayed when reflecting on what their passage on earth was like. The dichotomy between good (paradise) and evil (hell) is placed for us only in a later judgment of our life and behavior. The social strata are presented here in such a transparent way that, no matter how much it costs us, a fool would be the one who didn’t want to see or hear. Text written in a playful and rhythmic tone, full of doubles and third meanings, uncomplicated from the point of view of understanding, extremely didactic in relation to literature, whether dramatic or lyrical, which in our greatest playwright corresponds to both. And if all theater is poetry, Gil Vicente’s poetry is from the best and greatest theater written in Portuguese. Coordination: António Júlio // Actors: Tiago Jácome, José Alves, Pedro Couto, Patrícia […]
