The ninth edition of the festival takes place "in different circuits, from the island circuit", with "installations and projects that take place all over the island of São Miguel", "an exhibition circuit that occupies different places of the city of Ponta Delgada, "said Jesse James, organizer of the event.
The program does not forget "a performative circuit with music and dance and performance, which also occupies a number of places in the city and on the island" along with "an artistic residency program, which, in essence, feeds all the projects that are presented in the context of the festival, "he added.
The island circuit, curated by the multidisciplinary design collective The Decorators, features Prem Sahib, Rain Wu, Inês Neto dos Santos, Clementine Keith-Roach, Practice Architecture and Pedro Lino.
The exhibition circuit, curated by Sérgio Fazenda Rodrigues, brings together the proposals of Olivier Nottelet, Gonçalo Preto, Maria Trabulo, Rita GT, Andreia Santana, Mónica de Miranda, Diana Vidrascu and Miguel C. Tavares & José Alberto Gomes and Madalena Correia.
