Walk with Ellen Lima: Oby - Gentes verdes

The Galeria Municipal do Porto is located in the gardens of Palácio de Cristal and has dedicated its programming to contemporary art, but also to an artistic practice and thought related to Botany. 
 
On International Museum Day-which coincides with the International Fascination of Plants Day-we invite all to visit the gardens of the Palace through the eyes and voice of poet and indigenous activist Ellen Lima. The walk will encourage reflection on ancestral and contemporary temporality, but also to think about non-Western perspectives of understanding and relating to Nature.
Participation requires registration, free of charge, by email galeriamunicipal@agoraporto.pt.

Surface Encounters

Surface Encounters is the latest exhibition project of Galeria Municipal do Porto, which takes to the exterior of the building interventions by four artists from Ukraine who, between April and December 2022 will share their reality with the city through the images and impressions conveyed in each work.
 
The first piece exhibited is "the same hair", by artist Anna Zvyagintseva (1986, Dnipro, Ukraine), who has been working on themes such as the body, exploring the fragility of life through elusive intangible moments.
 
Surface Encounters will also feature contributions from artists Catherina Lisovenko and Alevtina Kakhidze and the 12345678910 Studio duo (Yevhenii Obraztsov and Anastasiia Omelych).
 
Each image will be graphically interpreted by the artist and designer Irina Pereira, a gesture that creates a liminal encounter zone, producing a space of sharing between distinct realities and experiences.
