CURATED BY EDUARDA ABBONDANZA AND FRANCISCO ROCHA
The distance between two points is a straight line. But stories, narratives and memories are not always geometrical or self evident, much in the same way that the creation of images is not solely explained by the shapes of what is represented. There are interferences. Retro/Future is a moment of reflection, on the occasion of ModaLisboa’s twentieth anniversary, and taking a cue from its visual heritage, it is also a look over a period of time, its communication goals, its own evolution and different intentions while searching for an image of future. A path, between two points, which spawned an archive, suggesting a direction.
