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 […]

The Castle Tower of Silves hosts, between April 12 and July 10, the photography exhibition “Time Lapses – In the Algarve, a Parar o Tempo”, by João António Fazenda. The exhibition portrays images of an Algarve, fleeting and changeable, real or dreamed but always beautiful, captured by the photographer, with his eyes, with his underlying imaginary, also marked by the passing of time. 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. The resulting images are pieces of time that are retained in them.” The exhibition takes place as part of the commemorations of the International Day for Monuments and Sites. Enjoy the heritage and discover the magnificent images of João António Fazenda.
