The exhibition “Documentar Algarve Interior – 9 Histórias / 30 fotos”, by Eduardo Pinto and Laura Carlos, is open to the public until the 3rd of July, at the Gama Lobo Palace, in Loulé.
Through photographic and filmic records, this exhibition transports us to arts and crafts – now almost extinct – in the Algarve region and to its protagonists.
Who remembers pita string, traditional stonework or pastoralism? These are some of the traditional activities presented in the exhibition that will revive memories.
Result of the project with the same name, this initiative leads us to remember some of the popular traditions and expressive practices that still remain alive and are part of the collective memory and identity of the Algarve countryside.
The project, carried out between 2010 and 2015, aimed to contribute to the enhancement of the local cultural heritage and to promote the dynamics around the creative activities linked to audiovisual production in the Algarve.
The video content was made in collaboration with filmmakers based in the region and focused on the municipalities of Albufeira, Alcoutim, Castro Marim, Faro, Loulé, São Brás de Alportel, Tavira and Vila Real de Santo António.
The exhibition can be visited from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 1 pm and from 2 pm to 6 pm, and on Saturday, from 9 am to 1 pm.
Admission is free.
