Galeria Municipal do Porto opens two new exhibition projects on June 12th: “Pés de Barro”, group exhibition curated by Chus Martínez and Filipa Ramos, and “Wall גדר جدار” by Inés Moldavski, curated by Guilherme Blanc.
The exhibition "Pés de Barro" presents different approaches to the curators' invitation addressed to a group of artists to question and reflect upon the different possibilities of pottery and ceramics – technologies full of history and creative power. What if the future is a technology as old and peculiar as clay? What if clay is the future and the future is clay? These are some of the questions that curators Chus Martínez and Filipa Ramos posed to artists Neïl Beloufa, Isabel Carvalho, Gabriel Chaile, Pauline Curnier Jardin, Formabesta (Salvador Cidrás & Juan Cidrás), Tamara Henderson, Ana Jotta and Eduardo Navarro, and which are now presented in an exhibition.
In “Wall גדר جدار”, Argentine-Israeli artist Inés Moldavsky was invited to revisit her film “The Men Behind the Wall” – winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlinale, Berlin International Film Festival in 2018 – where she got in touch and talked to Palestinian men who live in Gaza and the West Bank through a dating app. At Galeria Municipal do Porto, the artist expands this interweaving of digital, political, religious and gender boundaries, to build various moments of conversation and, consequently, of cultural analysis. The exhibition is curated by Guilherme Blanc.
The two exhibitions will have free admission and can be visited until August 22nd. All information regarding the exhibitions’ programming and calendar can be found on Galeria Municipal do Porto’s website.
