“If you love contemporary art, particularly conceptual art, this promises to be an unforgettable experience unlike anything else you will find in Lisbon. We will be visiting five locations in the colourful neighbourhood of Graça, located in the heart of the city, where I currently live. This is also where the acclaimed French artist Daniel Buren presented his famous artwork Affichages Sauvages in 1980. Though it is considered an important work within the history of contemporary art produced in Portugal, it is virtually unknown among broad audiences. When Buren came to Lisbon forty years ago, he pasted posters bearing his signature stripes on the tiled walls of several Graça buildings. On this guided visit, we will see the sites where these no longer extant works were originally located, followed by a private viewing of one of the actual posters at my place near the breathtaking Miradouro da Graça. Refreshments will be served.”
