Lisbon Conferences sold out for Opening Week.

Saturday - the last day of the conference features Konstantin Grcic and Giulio Cappellini

Starting at 3pm at Teatro Camoes.

A biennial’s theme tends to be sufficiently vague to accommodate some latitude of interpretation. It’s not supposed to be taken too seriously, just an opening line to move the conversation along. This year’s theme – “It’s About Time” – puts forward time as a subject, meaning perhaps the relationship between design and time-based media, or maybe suggesting a reflection about history. However, the expression also suggests an undertone of impatience, of haste, of an achievement that has come too late.

While the team is busy installing the Quick Quick Slow exhibition - we thought an introduction to the exhibition venue may be of interest to EXD’09 visitors - especially those from out of town.

One of the most highly regarded private contemporary art collections in Europe today, the Berardo Collection Museum is named after its founder, Portuguese businessman Joe Berardo. The Museum opened in 2006 and displays selections of its 862 works of art, in a rotation between the several themes that compose the collection. It occupies the exhibition centre of Centro Cultural de Belém.

Located in a symbolic area of the city, Centro Cultural de Belém was designed by the Italian architect Vittorio Gregotti in collaboration with the Portuguese architect Manuel Salgado and was built to house the Portuguese presidency of the European Union in 1992. Open to the public since 1993, the CCB is now a vast cultural centre with a seasonal programme of performing arts’ shows, lectures and educational activities. It features several facilities and is located in an architecture compound doted with gardens, lakes and immense public areas.

VENUE info:

Under the judicial protection of Fundação Oriente, the Museu do Oriente opened to the public in 2008, their mission being to bear witness to the Portuguese presence in Asia during five centuries, as well as other Asian cultures. The museum features two permanent exhibitions and several temporary exhibitions, performing arts’ shows, workshops, conferences and guided tours. The Museum is located in the Pedro Álvares Cabral building, a port construction from the beginning of the 40’s, used for the storage of salted cod fish. The rehabilitation project was undertaken by the architects João Luís Carrilho da Graça and Rui Francisco, which tried to cross the architectonical identity of the building and its new use. The museological project was designed by Carrilho da Graça and Nuno Gusmão (P-06 atelier). The building has a main body and two lower wings. The construction stands out due to the almost lack of windows owed to its initial function as a warehouse for perishable goods. The North façade, enriched with bas-relief executed by the sculptor Barata Feyo, contributes to make the Museu do Oriente one of the most representative buildings in Alcantara.

VENUE info:
The Sociedade Nacional de Belas-Artes (SNBA) was founded in 1901 with the goal of promoting the development of the arts and of national artists. Designed from scratch for the SNBA, the centenary headquarters’ building is a privileged space for artistic venues, one of the main guidelines of the SNBA’s mission. In 1965 the SNBA established the first Design course in Portugal. At the headquarters, alongside the teaching of artistic subjects, the Sociedade has also held several activities: exhibitions, lectures, conferences and the educational encouragement through art. It integrates a specialised library for researchers and students, which comprises a catalogue archive dated from the end of the 19th century and includes editions of the SNBA. These cover varied genres such as watercolor, photography (the first exhibitions in Portugal were organised by SNBA), as well as caricature and humoristic drawing.
