Interventions at Largo do Cidade and Rua da Caldeiroa, in Guimarães, to be appreciated from September 2nd to October 31st.
“Long Journey – For a Critique of Urgency” is the curatorial proposal for this year in the fourth edition of “Magic Carpets”. The interventions are visible in Largo do Cidade and Rua da Caldeiroa and can be visited between September 2 and October 31, pointing out the need for urgent criticism, critical awareness of the individual and collective, revealed through the artist’s idea as flâneur (path and city).
Lucie Dhermain (France), Iva Perućič and Maja Šušak – Paprat Collective (Croatia) are the artists selected for the artistic residencies included in the Magic project, through Emerging Ideas/Contextile Biennial, curated by Cláudia Melo.
These artistic residencies are also integrated in the program of the Bairro C project, promoted by the Municipality of Guimarães and in which Ideias Emergentes / Contextile has an active participation as a co-organizing entity. The residences also have the collaboration of Onda Amarela and the Landscape Laboratory.
Bairro C’s ambition is the discursive consubstantiation of the territory’s development strategy based on Culture, Knowledge, Science and Creativity in close connection with the Community.
