Organized by the City Hall's Department of Museums and Palaces and the Department of Galleries and Ateliers, in collaboration with Vipulamati Ample Intelligence, the Museu da Cidade in Lisbon (City Museum, Lisbon) presents the exhibition "... and then again..."
Curated by Ana Fonseca e Liz Collini, and in partnership with the Royal College of Arts and the Centro Português de Serigrafia, this collective exhibition of works by english and portuguese artists intends to show the various concepts, artistic approaches and techniques used in printmaking, including engraving, lithography and silkscreen.
On June 23, the seminar "Os dois lados do espelho" will take place at the museum, with the participations of Fátima Lambert, graduate and master in Phylosophy, and Phd in Aestethics, Jo Stockham, Director of the Contemporary Engraving Course at the Royal College of Arts, João Prates, Director of the Centro Português de Serigrafia, and Nuno Crespo, graduate and Phd in Philosophy, and professor in the Escola Superior de Design of IADE and in the Universidade de Évora (Évora University)
The event also pretends to raise awareness about the fact that printmaking in Portugal is still layed aside when compared to other mediums, different to what happens in U.K.
A residential programme, exhibitions at the Centro Português de Serigrafia (Portuguese Center of Silkscreen) and the release of a catalogue in July complement the exhibition, as well as guided tours and talks with the artists (from June 26) and Summer workshops and activities.
Presentation to the press will take place on June 21 (16h00) and will include a performance by Ann-Marie LeQuesne.
Also on the 21st there will be an invitation only cocktail reception for artists, journalists, institutional entities and notables of the national culture at the British Council.
