Discussing the concept of emergency in all its meanings – from urgency, requiring an immediate response, to a singular or unique moment – the collective exhibition “Ver as vozes dos artistas” opened last week on June 22nd at the Metrô do Porto. On view until September 22nd, the show features Brazilian artists Adriano Costa, Ivan Grilo and Ricardo Basbaum.
Curated by Miguel von Hafe Pérez, the show questions the space occupied by the voices of artists today. In a globalized world, where we seem to be always seeking answers to our questions from the other (be it social influencers, the media, or self-help books), we seem to have no more time to hear the artists’ answers.
Proposing to search and listen to the “voice of art”, the show leads us into a particular and unique view of the world, where answers are not that simple or fast. The artist’s voice response instead with critical density and questioning of the assimilated standards we generally expect.
