The former Beer Factory, in the historic area of Faro, will host the exhibition of the finalist students of the degree course in Visual Arts at the University of Algarve, entitled "FERONIA".
The exhibition will be inaugurated on June 21, at 9:30 p.m., and will be open until July 6.
For this new edition, students chose the title "FERONIA", evoking the symbology of strength, fertility and freedom associated with this goddess of ancient Roman mythology.
"This establishes a parallel between these ideas and the artistic creativity present in the works that these emerging youngsters want to freely affirm in society," says the academy.
The works and the researches carried out by the finalist students of the degree in Visual Arts and the master's degree in Communication Culture and Arts of the Faculty of Human and Social Sciences (FCHS) of UAlg will be visible.
In the spaces of the old factory, works that reflect the study of art history, contemporary art theory and practical expression in atelier can be seen, idiosyncratically manifested in different aspects and techniques of painting, sculpture, drawing, engraving, illustration, photography, video, multimedia installation and performance.
This exhibition also explores another objective of the Visual Arts course, the mastery of curating exhibitions and artistic intervention in public and architectural spaces.
"The dissemination of a new generation of creatives is thus pursued so that the community becomes aware of its artistic value and integrates them as essential protagonists of local cultural development with the ambition of a universal dimension," says UAlg.
The curators are Bertílio Martins, Fernando Amaro, Mirian Tavares, Pedro Cabral Santo, Rui Sanches, Susana de Medeiros, Tiago Batista and Xana.
The exhibition can be visited from June 21 to July 6, every day from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
