Artists open studio event in Faro

Designers, creators and artists from Faro are opening the doors of their studios to the public, between 16 October and 18 October, presenting their creative works in a more intimate and accessible form, all over the city.

“Last year was a success and this year we present 29 artists, but we only repeated half, the others are new”, said the organisers of Open Studios Faro 2020 to Lusa News Agency.

There are 16 spaces that open their doors during the three days will feature artists from "different areas" with a greater incidence in the visual arts participate, but with "performative notes, architecture, tattoos, photography, multimedia or sculpture", the organiser stressed.

The aim of the event is to open spaces that are usually closed to the public, such as the old carpentry shops of the Council of Faro, next to the Municipal Museum, which will serve as the basis for the exhibition “Blindfold Sessions - Dialogue at the Infinity”, developed jointly by Filipe Paixão and Gustavo Jesus, whose inauguration, at 6:30 pm 16 October, marks the beginning of the programme.

On Sunday, 18 October, the last day of the event, a street intervention by the artist Inês Barradas is scheduled with the participation of the public and the elaboration of a canvas that “fuses pixel-art with elements found in the Arraiolos rugs”.
