4Cs - From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture

4+4

4 + 4 proposals for making sense of today's convivial cultures

During April, while we are in social isolation and restrained from making and attending exhibitions in the physical world, we invited 4 artists and 4 curators to take the stage (read the website of 4Cs) and use it to communicate with their works and words in a convivial culture.

Atmospheric Conditions

The following five days will be dedicated to the sky. To the great immensity above us and the clouds in movement. To the possibility that lies in the air and the cyclic mixture of changing combinations of elements. Works by Jabulani Maseko / Words by Sofia Steinvorth

An approach to the meaning - La Máquina de Macedonio

From where does our relationship with reality come? How is the experience of both the world and ourselves established? In a time of social isolation, we are led to reflect on the subjective frame that underlies our narratives, our individual and collective certainties, practices, and habits. This reflection highlights the intertwining of reality and fiction as the source where the sense of meanings rest, as expressed in cultural, symbolic and historical practices, and knowledge.

Becoming: meditations on landscape (I)

A drawing on a white background, a black line that delineates the shape, that grows. A landscape, our landscapes, yours, everyday landscapes and those that we have yet to discover. Through three videos and three drawings, we will build a narrative, an emotional space to reflect on different relationships based on the elements of nature. "Becoming: meditations" is an online project/exhibition with works by Joana Patrão in close dialogue with Maria Eduarda Duarte.
