Carpe Diem Editions: The Story so Far
The contemporary art scene of Portugal / introduced to Greece for the first time
T.A.F. / the art foundation happily announces its collaboration with the cultural institution Carpe Diem Art and Research in the framework of the exhibition Carpe Diem Editions: The Story so Far. The show opens on Wednesday the 25th of October 2017 at 20.30 and runs until the 19th of November.
The collaboration takes place under the thematic umbrella #building_bridges featured in this year’s TAF exhibition program, aiming at building stable partnerships with cultural organisations and institutionsin in and outside Greece. Carpe Diem Art and Research is a centre for contemporary art and curatorial research. It is housed in Lisbon’s renovated sixteenth-century Palacio Pombal and during all these years of operation has presented multidisciplinary exhibitions and public programs, reinforcing the artistic life of the city.
Carpe Diem Editions are limited printed editions created by artists after their collaboration with Carpe Diem Art and Research. They came as a natural extension of the contemporary art center’s curatorial program. This initiative has developed into a new strong model of cultural sustainability.
The show Carpe Diem Editions:The Story so Far is an open discussion on and presentation of the artistic development in Portugal from 2008 onwards, during a period of several economic, political as well as social transformations in the country. The exhibition brings together more than 70 works by emerging and renowned Portuguese artists.
