TEMPORADAS da vaga - the North Norwegian Art Center in Portugal
- Place Ponta Delegada, Azorene, Portugal
In the coming months, NNKS is pleased to be part of TEMPORADAS, an EEA-supported collaboration with the Vaga exhibition space in Ponta Delegada, Azores, Portugal.
TEMPORADAS (seasons in Portuguese) is a programming project that aims to organize and present new art projects and expand references in the broad field of arts and foster collaborations between artists, agents, and organizations in the Azores and in relation to other geographies, specifically Iceland and Norway.
TEMPORADAS will be the context for a practical exercise on curatorial models and processes of commonality and shared agency, assuming vaga as a place of experimentation for future formats.
Over two years, between March 2022 and June 2023, four TEMPORADAS will be presented, each lasting three months, and co-curated and accompanied by the artistic partners of the North Norwegian Art Center (Norway), LungA Art Festival (Iceland) and Cycle Music and Art Festival (Iceland).
Each TEMPORADA invites a group of artists to explore an anchor theme, which unfolds in a program of activities that will include exhibitions, installations, performances, film cycles, research and an associated Knowledge Program with guided tours, workshops for children and adults, seminars and formation. The activities of the TEMPORADAS will be accompanied by the collective LABTEMPO, which will then be challenged to co-curate the fourth and last TEMPORADA.
TEMPORADAS is supported by the Connecting Dots - Artistic Mobility and Audience Development program of the EEA GRANTS fund, in a strategic partnership and co-financed by the Municipality of Ponta Delgada.
