CYCLE OF VISUAL ARTS
SUSANA MEDEIROS IS THE NEXT GUEST OF THE CYCLE OF VISUAL ARTS
On May 11, 2022, at 5 p.m., CIAC and the University of Algarve promote a lecture with the multidisciplinary artist Susana Medeiros. Integrated in the Cycle of Visual Arts , the session takes place at the Amphitheatre 0.4 of the Penha Campus and admission is free.
Susana Medeiros has developed her artistic research based on the territory (the Algarve territory mainly) as a laboratory, reflecting on the concept of place; the construction of the idea of nature; the act of walking as an aesthetic act; and the role of the artist as a mediator of a ‘new sensibility’ in relation to the surrounding environment. Among the places where she has developed projects (as an artist) are Cuenca (Spain), Maputo (Mozambique), Nottingham (England), New York (USA), St. Petersburg (Russia) and several places in Portugal.
She has been teaching since 2007 in university education, in the Degree in Visual Arts (FCHS) at the University of Algarve. Develops non-formal education projects in visual and performing arts and in cinema with different public and private entities. Organizes, since 2004, as curator-artist and/or producer, several collaborative/participatory projects that question the relationships between art, territory, environment, memory and community. She integrated the social bodies of several cultural associations: LAC – Laboratório de Artes Criativas (Lagos), Xerém (Lisbon) and Tertúlia (Aljezur). He is currently part of the collective of artists from Associação 289 – Arte Contemporânea, in Faro.
Promoted by CIAC and FCT, the Cycle of Visual Arts is organized by the Visual Arts degree course at the Faculty of Human and Social Sciences of the University of the Algarve.
