Cidadela Art District Curated By Sandro Resende In the Context of the Art Residence / Open Studio at
With artistic curatorship by Sandro Resende and developed by Group Pestana CAD will be a disruption in the population’s daily routine that intends to offer contemporary art through the appropriation of non-sites and means associated with mass communication, promoting artistic development as a facilitator for artists and galleries. There is a doubly subversive character in this Art District: on one hand it brings contemporary art into everyday life’s context; on the other, by using non-sites or transitional spaces it is the decontextualization’s exceptional character that is emphasized. There will be a concerted planned artistic program throughout the year that aims to promote the work produced by both the artists residing in open studios and the cultural galleries that begin their activity now.
