Curator: Jean-François Chougnet | Session:Open Call – Screening of competition finalists
Between 2006 and 2014, a building on Avenida da Liberdade in Lisbon was home to approximately fifty national and international artists, with a view to developing their artistic practices. During those years, a series of events took place, including concerts, improvisations, performances, workshops, classes and primarily collective and individual exhibitions. With the arrival of the Novo Banco bank, the Avenida space was sold for millions of euros, for the purpose of building a luxury condominium.
Here the building itself is portrayed as a character, hosting some ghostly testimonials from artists that passed through there.
