From November 11th to January 12th
CHURCH OF MISERICORDIA RECEIVES EXHIBITION “TREES AND CANAVAIS II”, BY JORGE SANTOS
The Misericórdia Church, in Silves, hosts the exhibition “Arvoredos e Canaviais II”, by artist Jorge Santos, from November 11th to January 12th. The exhibition, curated by João Silvério, is scheduled to open on Saturday, November 11th, at 3:30 pm.
It is a tribute to the work of artist Jorge Santos and to his memory, in the place where he was born. His artistic production, carried out over almost a quarter of a century, is very vast: drawings, paintings, screen prints, photographs, videos, sculptures, tiles and a very considerable number of the artist’s books, but also annotated notebooks where we find studies for various projects in each of these areas of creation, many of them accomplished and others that, being part of his work process, contributed to many other works, some of them unpublished.
The exhibition, the second in this cycle dedicated to his work, presents a selection of works very representative of his artistic career, from a more intimate perspective. It is a moment to share his memory and the legacy of a very unique, contemporary work closely linked to the human expression of a poetic and imaginary that is close to us.
