The international artists workshop of Triangle Network,”Transient: in between albums and arquives”, organized by Xerem in partnership with the Largo Residencias and Arquivo Municipal de Lisboa – Fotografia will end on December 12 (Wednesday) with an open day that will be held in various spaces in the Intendente Square from 4.30 to 8 pm.
With artistical coordination of the artists Jorge Rocha and Monica de Miranda and curatorial support of Carlos Alcobia, 6 artists, Anton Theileis (Germany), Carla Cabanas (Portugal), Ivan Grilo (Brazil), Jordi Burch (Portugal), Rene Tavares (Sao Tome and Principe), and Susana Anagua (Portugal) were in residence at Largo Residências for 10 days, where they developed their research reflecting on their creative process, a program that sought to follow the common goals to actions organized within the network Triangle and was focused on exchanging experiences, highlighting and reinterpreting the specificities of each site, linking artists and artistic and cultural movements from different countries, and to boost the presence of these international contexts within local artists.
The workshop, which featured a strong involvement of the Largo Residências team, Marta Silva, Susana Alves and Daniel Abrantes, was held at Intendente in Lisbon, and also sought to act as a platform for meetings between artists and hybridization of territories, marked by the multiplicity of communities that cross between them intermezzos and it functioned within a context of strong urban regeneration.
As noted by the curator Carlos Alcobia, “a mediation space changeable that allows us to travel to the other, inhabit it, but without transforming it. Our understanding of the Intendente will always be outside but now inevitably more nuanced and conflicted. A melting pot, that sucks us in and assimilates which seek to resist and escape, but then at the end to return. “
The workshop, which featured a strong involvement of the Largo Residencies team, Marta Silva, Susana Alves and Daniel Abrantes, will now open its doors and occupy different spaces in the Intendente Square with opening scheduled for 4.30pm and closing at 8 pm.
