Last days to visit Adriano Costa’s solo show “Chapéu Filosófico”

(Lisbon, Portugal) The mythical hat worn by Rui Chapéu (or Rui “Hat”), a famous snooker player in Brazil in the 1980, inspired the title of Adriano Costa‘s (three-times PIPA Prize nominee) latest solo show, “Chapéu Filosófico” [Philosophical Hat]. The exhibition ends this Saturday, February 25th, at Múrias Centeno, and features works that talk about art, the system of art, friends, relationships, drugs, and the codes and symbols we use to communicate today.

“Chapéu Filosófico”, Adriano Costa’s latest solo show

(Lisbon, Portugal) Rui Chapéu (or Rui “Hat”) was a famous snooker player in Brazil in the 1980s. His real name was, in fact, José Rui de Mattos Amorim; the “Hat” part was adopted after the white beret he wouldn’t take off. The mythical hat also inspired Adriano Costa’s latest solo show, “Chapéu Filosófico” [Philosophical Hat], which opens today at Múrias Centeno. According to Costa, Rui’s carefully choreographed moves at the billiard table “made me think about the need for pleasure when producing art”.
