The exhibition Cities in the City brings together works by Carlos Barradas and María Sainz Arandia — registers of community initiatives in the field of social and environmental justice, in Porto and Valencia, that explore the potential for the sustainability of public space and the poetics of the relationships that emerge from it as inclusive and regenerative acts of resistance.
These two projects were developed between January and March 2021, in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and social distancing. During the process of creating and producing the exhibition, the artists were accompanied by curators Maíra Villela and Virgílio Ferreira. The structures for the exhibition were designed by Nuno Pimenta and produced with the support of ArtWorks from industrial waste and other reused materials, contributing for a circular economy and the best management of our resources in artistic production.
