WORKSTATION NEW MEDIA
Community, biology, gender, social exclusion, post-contemporaneity, body, mental health: the physical and the metaphysical presented in an exhibition where AI, performance, 3D, sound, interactive media and emerging technologies are portals to what moves the society we live in. And, exactly for this reason, the Fashion we work with.
WORKSTATION NEW MEDIA, a new project by Associação ModaLisboa, with the support of the República Portuguesa — Cultura / Direção Geral das Artes, curated by Miguel Flor, presents its first exhibition. From the 5th to the 8th of October, between 12pm and 7pm, Carpintarias de São Lázaro has free entry for everyone who wants to immerse themselves in this experience that both harmonizes and confronts the disciplines of Fashion, Fine Arts and Technology.
The exhibition includes the work of three invited artists — paatiff, Rudolfo Quintas and the collective ZABRA — and the five names selected from the open call launched in July. Extramundus :: João e Sara, Marco Maiato, Mindeformer & Zalda, Ricardo Santos aka Postmodern Bot and S4RA presented the best projects in the competition and, on the last day of the event, the jury — Eduarda Abbondanza, Miguel Flor (who is also the curator of the exhibition) and João Pedro Fonseca and Carincur (ZABRA) — will announce the winner of the two thousand euro prize for the first edition of WORKSTATION NEW MEDIA.
Also on this day, October 8th, there will be a guided tour of the exhibition and a conversation with all participants. Both events are free entry, and will be interpreted in Portuguese Sign Language.
