This week I was invited to Lisbon to take part in the Red Bull street gallery project. Although it was sponsored by a commercial brand, Red Bull guaranteed a non-interference stance. The idea was that 10 Portuguese urban artists from a variety of backgrounds would put out work in the streets for the International Museum Day to create alternative public museums/galleries for the day. The artists were given all they needed in order to carry out their individual pieces which were placed nearby to famous gallery institutions.
My role was to give an informal lecture, which was held on a roof terrace in the Barrio Alto during the evening. It was a chance to share stories, ideas and experiences and to get to know these young up-and-coming artists.
Thanks so Miguel and Vhils for the invite.
