MIRA ARTISTIC RESIDENCY 2019
17 JUL, 2019 — 25 AGO, 2019
MIRA FORUM Gallery and Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation propose an artistic residence for three months in Porto. The two entities consider contemporary creation a groundwork for the plural development of citizenship. MIRA FORUM is a gallery basically related to photography, founded in 2013 by Manuela Matos Monteiro and João Lafuente. Hundreds of artists have presented their work at around 80 exhibitions, 55 talks, 53 book launches, 43 concerts, 3 travel talks, 18 workshops, 30 photo walks, 7 international photography contests and dozens of art residencies. Artistic residences are also important in MIRA’s intervention and are focused on research, artistic production and cultural sharing. The projects are developed through the provision of creation, research and residential space.
