The Sines Arts Center opens to the public this June 22 with the exhibition "Public / Private – Doce Calma or Domestic Violence?", Curated by Miguel Sousa Ribeiro. It can be visited until October 18, 2020.
As it is read in the text of the curator, «the Public / Private status is evident in this selection and there are several works that refer us to this subject, such as the dichotomous work by Fernanda Fragateiro “Public / Private, Doce Calma or Domestic Violence”. This work served as a motto for the exhibition title, to which a question mark was added, “because in such a wide range of works», Writes Miguel Sousa Ribeiro,«more than stating we want to question and enable individual subjectivity of responses».
The exhibition brings together works by 24 artists. In addition to Fernanda Fragateiro, Ângela Ferreira, Brígida Mendes, Carlos Bunga, Catarina Botelho, Cecília Costa, Eduardo Souto de Moura, Igor Jesus, Inês d´Orey, Joana Vasconcelos, João Galrão, João Leonardo, João Paulo Serafim, Jorge Molder , José Bechara, José Pedro Cortes, José Pedro Croft, Luísa Cunha, Miguel Ângelo Rocha, Noé Sendas, Nuno Cera, Pedro Barateiro, Rodrigo Oliveira and Teresa Braula Reis.
The exhibition is structured in a sequence of sub-exhibition centers that aim to explore the articulations between a set of works and the architectural circumstances of the Centro de Artes de Sines, namely, its openness and breadth, which enhance dialogue. The curator writes, «we thought of an exhibition with several artists, in which their practice – which circulates around sculpture, drawing, photography, installation, object, sound and moving image (video) -, if they differed and allowed different interpretive possibilities or possible readings in relation to the subjects we wanted to highlight».
The exhibition, organized by the city council of Sines, has free admission and can be visited, from Monday to Friday, from 10 am to 6 pm, and on Saturday, from 11 am to 5 pm.
