The Order of Christ was created in 1319, by order of King D. Dinis, after the extinction, by Pope Clement V, of the Order of the Templars, one of the most famous Military Orders of Cavalry, founded in 1118, in the aftermath of the 1st Crusade. With a decisive role in the Reconquest period, in the military activity against the Moors and in the settlement of the territory, the Order of the Templars was also the owner of a vast patrimony that, by right, belonged to the Holy See, a fact that threatened the sovereignty of the king. With the pretext of defending the Algarve coast from attacks by pirates and Maghrebian pirates, D. Dinis manages to decree the creation of the new religious-military order. The 1st headquarters of the Order of Christ was then the Castro Marim Castle, with one of the most solid defensive systems in the entire Kingdom of the Algarve and located on the maritime border with Morocco and in the vicinity of the Islamic community of Granada. “Castro Marim, First Seat of the Order of Christ” is an exhibition approved under the Interreg Spain-Portugal Program 2014-2020, supported by the European Union, co-financed 75% by the […]

Open until November 14 in the Temporary and Temporary Exhibitions Room and part of the “MAR” Project of the Algarve Museum Network (RMA), “Ouvir o Oceano” intends to draw attention and convey a strong message to the need to protect beauty and the purity of the oceans, preventing their degradation, in particular through discharges of polluting waste and plastic packaging, as well as through poaching. In a region strongly linked to maritime culture such as Portimão and Algarve, BJ Boulter’s warning makes perfect sense, as the materials in question represent a real threat to the extinction of many species of fish, crustaceans, mammals, turtles and reefs, for the pollution they cause. “Listening to the ocean is urgent!” Artist, designer and film producer, Barbara grew up in Tanzania and Uganda, having received her education in Kenya and London. The artist arrived in the Algarve in 1962, when her British parents acquired “Residencial Pinguim”, in Praia da Rocha.

Looking for a (non)sense (ir)representable From August 7, 2021 to September 26, 2021 Artistic creation as a search for order, not from disorder, but through reordering. An order, not of form, but of the informality of feeling. Drawing as an exploration, not to represent the predefined form, but as a redefinition of the way to explore visual thinking. A redefinition, not of the meaning, but of the way to reveal it. The graphic process developed, not on the basis of the chaos of an original principle, but as a structuring of a completely free imaginary. A freedom, not of detachment, but of seeking attachment. Thinking about and through form, not as a way to recognize it, but to know (oneself). A knowing oneself, not from being, but from the feeling of being. Expression of a sensibility, not to aesthetics, but to the discovery of an affective sensibility to the consubstantiation of the image (of oneself). An image, not pre-visible, but beyond the (before) visible. An idiosyncratic manifestation, not of the mental, but of the mind-body system. A system, not of juxtaposition, but of symbiosis. An idealization, not of an object(iv)o, but of the subjectivity of the phenomenon of discovering it […]
