    For the exhibition Verão – Été – Summer – Sommer, Diogo Pinto will present an original artwork inside the tent in front of Pavilhão Branco and again, with another work, on a beach in the Algarve. Pinto’s research-heavy curatorial and artistic practice examines Portuguese art historical narratives and actors, in this instance focusing on the tourism industry in the Algarve. Through Faltpavillon, his work will be framed directly by the environments his curatorial and artistic work investigates, thereby making new connections available to the viewer and underlining the inextricable link between the physical space of the Algarve, its history as it relates to tourism, and it’s representation in art.

    This presentation is staged in concert with the exhibition This is a Bar… ou Praia de Banhos – Joaquim Bravo, Turismo e o Algarve, curated by the artist Diogo Pinto and currently on view at Galerias Municipais – Pavilhão Branco.

  • Only one acorn in a thousand ever grew large enough to fight rabbits; the rest were drowned at birth in the prairie sea. It is a warming thought that this one wasn’t, and thus lived to garner eighty years of June sun. It is this sunlight that is now being released, through the intervention of my axe and saw, to warm my shack and my spirit through eighty gusts of blizzard. And with each gust a wisp of smoke from my chimney bears witness, to whomsoever it may concern, that the sun did not shine in vain.
