From September 8th, Casa Manuel Teixeira Gomes will exhibit a set of paintings by Patico under the suggestive title “Fernando Pessoa, from Pessoa to People”, open until October 31st. Patico, Francisco Alberto’s artistic name, is from Monforte, where he was born in 1971, and currently resides in Lagoa, using drawings, mixed painting techniques and collages in his paintings. With a vast exhibition curriculum and some literary editions, the artist explains that from poetic writing, from figurative to abstract, he reveals “carved, sculpted and plastic feelings, coming from my intro and retrospective album, built in the light of Fernando Pessoa, other people – some better known than others -, things and places of water, salt, sun, sweat… and tears.” “This look therefore intends to go beyond the passion and fascination that I have for his genius, work and, as well, for the galactic public person(s) that the Poet contains, which transport us to multiple dimensions (concrete, abstract…)”, says Patico.
The exhibition “Between fishing and weaving lines” will open at 5pm on September 9th, at the Museu de Portimão, which brings together a selection of works of different types created by Conceição Abreu, using various techniques, including drawings, sculptures, installations and photographs. Curated by Sofia Marçal, the exhibition was designed with the purpose of creating, from a contemporary perspective, a dialogue with the Portimão Museum’s ethnographic collection and the history of fishing linked to the city, and can be considered almost a retrospective exhibition, where the lightness of the works on display fits into a poetic narrative expanded over time. The works, where fishing and weaving lines meet, reflect the artist’s commitment to searching for the limits of materials and materials, realizing them in works of art and giving them immortality, by expanding the idea of perpetuity related to the design of fishing nets.

Glantosz’s visual interventions, which are part of the “Presente Invisível” exhibition, at Fábrica da Cerveja, bring in essence two provocations: “am I one of these usually invisible typical elements of the society that the artist portrays? Am I one of the blind people who looks away from these figures?” Divided into three parts, the artist exposes the frontality of what requires recognition: the nine identities of invisibility (The Windows, which allude to the architecture of the Factory building itself), the ignored public spaces of the city (The Streets) and the historically relegated victims to indifference or concealment (The Work). “Incorporeal” serves as a set of triggers for the “common hypocrite” or a flashlight in a dark forest of bodies and identities. Opening with a performance on September 6th, the project combines the architecture […]
