Contemporary art in traditional stores

suggested route map

Over the next days, the Plastic Artists – Stores with History Project turns some of the city’s centenary stores into small art galleries.

Until the 22nd of April, between Largo do Rato and Largo do Chiado, an outdoor exhibition route formed by 10 works conceived especially for this exhibition by 10 guest artists, distributed by 10 historic shop windows is proposed. An initiative developed by EGEAC, in collaboration with the Stores with History Project by the Lisbon City Council.

Original pieces of contemporary art interact with traditional trade, bringing together artists from different generations and crossing techniques and materials as diverse as leds, clay, stones, mirrors, porcelain and video projection, between painting, sculpture and installation.

Inspired by the existence and memory of the stores, together with their assets, the works aim to draw attention to the cultural and historical heritage of the city and to enhance the intersection of audiences, thus adding a new chapter to the long history of these iconic spaces.

The works of the 2023 edition of the Plastic Artists – Stores with History Project can be visited individually or together, in an original artistic itinerary.
