Over the last decade, the city of Braga has expanded the geographical scope of its cultural and artistic practices, establishing relationships with European and international partners. The European Youth Capital 2012, the title of UNESCO Creative City for Media Arts, and Braga’27, the candidacy project for European Capital of Culture 2027, are prime examples of this dynamic.
The “Europe and Beyond” exhibition consists of four works in the fields of media art, visual arts, and design from partner cities, such as Kaunas European Capital of Culture 2022 (Lithuania), Clérmont-Ferrand Candidate for European Capital of Culture 2028, Enghien Les Bains (France) and Gwangju (South Korea), UNESCO Creative Cities for Media Arts, and Fortaleza (Brazil), UNESCO Creative City for Design.
The works will be exhibited at Theatro Circo and gnration during the Noite Branca event, on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th of September, and admission is free.
The installations BLUR 2.0 by Jorge Ramos, Anna Kim, and Julien Gaillac (Portugal, France, and South Korea) and Forest Tectonics by Aistė Ambrazevičiūtė (Lithuania), co-curated by Kaunas European Capital of Culture 2022, will both be on display at the INL gallery of the gnration.
The Main Hall of Theatro Circo will host the other two works that make up this exhibition: #IssoNãoÉPixação by Vitor Grilo (Brazil), co-curated by the UNESCO Creative City of Fortaleza, and Root by Anne-Sophie Emard, co-curated: Clermont Ferrand Candidate City for European Capital of Culture 2028.
