PortugalArte 10: Lisbon's New Biannual Exhibition

LISBON.- Portugal Arte 10 EDP, a new month-long biannual art exhibition, announces its inaugural edition to debut July 16, 2010 in Lisbon and the surrounding region. Conceived by Artistic Director Stefan Simchowitz and President Miguel Carvalho, Portugal Arte 10 EDP distinguishes itself from other international art events by creating a sense of public engagement with the greater art-world. Portugal Arte 10 EDP will feature a large and ambitious program of specially commissioned public sculpture projects and site-specific installations, alongside 8 curated group exhibitions, each addressing themes relevant to contemporary life. It will be spread across Lisbon and its surrounding regions, including city squares, walkways, beach territories, and historic interior spaces.
