The first collective exhibition of the ViViFiCAR project brings together unpublished works by 12 artists and opens at the Douro Museum on March 3 (Friday), at 4 pm.
The ViViFiCAR project embraces the ideas of “living and staying” as guiding axes of creative encounters between national and Norwegian artists and local communities. During 2022, the cities of Alijó, Lamego, Mêda, and Torre de Moncorvo hosted the “Living Encounters”, hosting three artists in residence in each municipality.
Alexandre Delmar, André Tribbensee, Fábio Cunha, Hasan Daraghmeh, Ine Harrang, João Pedro Fonseca, José Pires, Maria Lusitano, Patrícia Geraldes, Raquel Schefer, Trond Lossius and Violeta Moura were the artists who, for six weeks, lived in the houses of ambassadors locations.
The entire creative process was accompanied by a team of moderators — Gabriela Vaz-Pinheiro, Jayne Dyer, Jon Arne Mogstad, Virgílio Ferreira — and supported by local mediators. The developed projects were presented in the respective parishes at the end of the residencies, revealing the result of the collaborative process with the communities.
12 original works were developed on territories and local communities, celebrating the identity, memory and heritage, as well as the resilience of the people of the four partner municipalities.
The selection of works carried out under the ViViFiCAR project will be presented for the first time at the Douro Museum, located in Peso da Régua, on the 3rd of March (Friday), at 4 pm, and will later be presented at Surnadal Billag, at Norway.
Always confirm with the concert hall or promoter the conditions of access, confirmation of the date or time, tickets place of sale, price, and availability.
