I is for Institute
March 15th, 6pm, 2017
Institute of Contemporary Art –  Philadelphia

Luís Silva and João Mourão will present an overview of their work and ethos as co-founders and co-directors of Kunsthalle Lissabon. Founded by Silva and Mourão in 2009, Kunsthalle Lissabon is an independent contemporary art institution based in Lisbon, Portugal, that seeks to position itself “as an intentional alternative to traditional institutional models and, in the process, expand the general view of what constitutes an institution.”

Artists Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela present their films, The Mesh and the Circle (2014, HDV, 34min), a collection of visual testimonies on gesture, symbolism and labor, and May a Hundred Bolts of Lightning Open You (2015, 16mm, 14min), which was produced collectively by the artists with 17 other artists and local people from Pitões das Júnias. Following the screening Caló and Queimadela will be joined in conversation by Luís Silva and João Mourão.

This event is free and open to the public. Two screenings of May a Hundred Bolts of Lightning Open You will begin at 6PM, followed by a conversation with the artists and curators at 6:30PM.

Luís Silva and João Mourão are a curatorial duo based in Lisbon, Portugal, where they currently serve as co-directors of Kunsthalle Lissabon. They were the curators of the 2015 and 2016 editions of ZONA MACO SUR, the solo project section of Mexico City’s contemporary art fair. Exhibitions at Kunsthalle Lissabon have included solo projects with artists such as Nathalie du Pasquier (2017), Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela (2016), Celine Condorelli (2016), Iman Issa (2016), Katja Novitskova (2015), Marwa Arsanios (2015), Mariana Castillo Deball (2014), Petrit Halilaj (2014), Patrizio Di Massimo (2014), Amalia Pica (2013), Leonor Antunes (2013), Jonathas de Andrade (2013), among others. Besides their curatorial practice, Mourão and Silva are also co-editors of the ongoing book series Performing the Institution(al), published by Kunsthalle Lissabon that addresses recent developments in institutional practice and parameters.

Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela began collaborating during their studies at the Fine Arts Academy in Porto, Portugal, where they currently live and work. They have collaborated as an artist duo since 2016 creating video installations, films, objects and site-specific environments. Their work is embedded in historical, mythical, metaphorical and intuitive references that help to create poetic reflections on different landscapes, situations and ideas. The pair have been the recipient of grants from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation to attend an international artist’s residency at Gasworks, London and were 2012 awardees of the BES Revelation prize. They were finalists of the 10th edition of Edp New Artists prize and winners of the Lo Schermo dell’arte Film Festival International Prize, in 2013. Caló and Queimadela have presented their work in several exhibition venues including: The National Gallery, Prague; Rowing Projects, London; Gasworks, London; General Public, Berlin; the Serralves Museum, Porto; and most recently Kunsthalle Lissabon, Lisbon.

Location: This event, regularly scheduled for March 14 at International House Philadelphia, will now take place at ICA.

Camaleónica

Camaleónica [Cartaz].png

Camaleónica
Sexta-feira 03 Mar – Sáb 01 Abril, 2017
CAPC, Coimbra

Curadoria Miguel Leal | Círculo Sede

Camaleónica é a condição do camaleão ou do que se comporta como tal. Essa condição é a da mudança, a da transformação, quase como se o mundo se viesse alojar na própria pele. Não se trata de carregar o mundo ás costas mas antes de nos tornarmos mundo, numa espécie de mutação, um devir-outro e imperceptível. Essa exterioridade, definindo-se a partir do interior, é acima de tudo uma experiência da multiplicidade.
Nesta exposição reúne-se um conjunto de artistas que irão trabalhar em torno desta ideia dos processos de transformação camaleónica que nos aproximam do(s) outros(s) e do que nos é estranho. Uma transformação que implica antes de mais uma resistência a toda cristalização, seja da identidade, das relações, dos lugares ou das memórias.
As várias intervenções, algumas delas concebidas especificamente para a exposição, irão ocupar os vários espaços do edifício sede do CAPC, em diálogo com o próprio carácter do lugar.

Lista de artistas: Ricardo Basbaum (BR), Pedro Wirz (BR/CH), Sónia Neves (PT), André Sousa (PT), Schirin Kretschmann (DE), Mariana Caló e Francisco Queimadela (PT), Nuno Ramalho (PT), Diana Carvalho (PT), Mafalda Santos (PT).

“The Mesh and the Circle” has its première in North America,
at the festival Art of the Real in New York.

A Trama e o Círculo
Mariana Caló & Francisco Queimadela, Portugal/Italy, 2014, 34m

“Using a restaged version of Diary of a Country Priest’s opening shot as a recurring framing device, Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela depict, deconstruct, and show the movement-based connections between obscure rituals and daily domestic activities from across Portugal. These actions exist simultaneously as symbol and document of the quotidian, a fascinating, accessible experimental and anthropological study. North American Premiere”

O LIVRO DA SEDE

O LIVRO DA SEDE
12/03 a 29/05 de 2016
Museu de Serralves, Porto

“O Livro da Sede” constitui uma experiência imersiva composta por cinco filmes analógicos. Mariana Caló (Viana do Castelo, 1984) e Francisco Queimadela (Coimbra, 1985) sublinham aqui o tema principal do seu trabalho: as manifestações, a perceção e as interpretações da passagem do tempo. Imagens mostrando pessoas a saciar a sede, animais enjaulados e manifestações culturais ancestrais transformam esta instalação num autêntico estudo antropológico, em que a sede é associada a instintos vitais e à liberdade.

A exposição “O livro da Sede” é organizada pelo Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves, e é comissariada por Ricardo Nicolau, curador do Museu, assistido pela curadora Filipa Loureiro
