MU SEKE | PEDRO PIRES v BABU | FEB17

Pop-up Mash-up at ELA - Espaço Luanda Arte | 3FEB - 1MAR

Opening on the 3rd February | 18H | De Beers building, Luanda. 

Pop-Up Mash-Up

It is an innovative project in the Arts in Angola because it mixes the concept of "pop-up", something that opens for a short time in a place for a short period of time, and "mash-up" that, inspired by music, is created from the blending of two or more pre-existing themes in order to be fused. It therefore appears as a project with elements of complement and conflict, where 2 Artists are invited to work and to dialogue together and separately, but always in residence, in order to create a certain number of solo works and others in collaboration. It ends up being a kind of duet where the synergies between the 2 Artists are maximized and the result of the combination of two elements is greater than the sum of the results that these elements would have separately. Thus, "Pop-Up Mash-Up" is nothing more than a sum of elements directed towards the same end, but where the sum of these parts is greater and where 1 + 1 = 3.

The Lorne Sculpture Biennale (LSB) is a vibrant festival celebrating the best of Australian and international sculpture. It's a free public event held every two years, and over three weekends the stunning Lorne foreshore becomes the picturesque pedestal for these sculptures, and the venue for a vibrant program of events.

‘Landfall’ is the curatorial theme for 2018 and is devoted to pressing global issues of nature and endangerment. Artists use the medium of sculpture (including light, sound, performance, and projection) to explore this theme and the intersection of nature, humanity, and art.

SOLO SHOW "3014,49 KM"

LISBON | EDGE ARTS 28 SET - 02 NOV 2017

Curated by Inês Valle, "3014,49 Km" is an exhibition about the refugee/migrant crisis in Europe, about Europe and about new demographics. The research for this exibition started in 2016 with a trip to the Greek island of Lesbos, where I did volunteer work with the NGO ERCI and field research around the island colleting objects abandoned by refugees and migrants. 

The exhibition opens on the 28th of September with the screening of 2 films by the syrian artist Issa Touma, followed by a talk between Pedro Pires, Issa Touma, Pedro Calado (High Comissioner for Migrations of Portugal) and Margarida Pinto Correia (Representing PAR - Refugee support platform). 

GROUP SHOW | GALLERY MOMO

14 SET - 15 OCT 2017

"A Continent Beyond", opening 14th September at 18h, a group exhibition featuring nineteen artists who have helped define and redefine contemporary art within and beyond our borders.

The exhibition offers an occasion to reflect on the multiple journeys both from the artists, and also from Gallery MOMO. Over the past fourteen years, Gallery MOMO has challenged the seams that bind the South African art scene and burst into the international scene with a certain degree of conviction that has captured a changing country and continent through its artists.

Today, the continent stands at a particular moment to define not just itself, but history, art and space all together. This is a moment beyond republics and invisible borders drafted by men who stand now as monumentalized ghosts of the past – this is a continent beyond.

Participating Artists: Roger Ballen | Stephane Conradie | Florine Demosthene | Kimathi Donkor | Modupeola Fadugba | Dumile Feni | George Hallett | Ayana V Jackson | Coby Kennedy | Dillon Marsh | Maurice Mbikayi | Kenrick McFarlane | Sethembile Msezane | Pedro Pires | Curtis Talwst Santiago | Mary Sibande | Ransome Stanley | Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum | Andrew Tshabangu | Khaya Witbooi
