What you'll do

If you love contemporary art, particularly conceptual art, this promises to be an unforgettable experience unlike anything else you will find in Lisbon. We will be visiting five locations in the colorful neighborhood of Graça, located in the heart of the city, where I currently live. This is also where the acclaimed French artist Daniel Buren presented his famous artwork “Affichages Sauvages” in 1980. Though it is considered an important work within the history of contemporary art produced in Portugal, it is virtually unknown among broad audiences. When Buren came to Lisbon forty years ago, he pasted posters bearing his signature stripes on the tiled walls of several Graça buildings. On this guided visit, we will see the sites where these no longer extant works were originally located, followed by a private viewing of one of the actual posters at my place near the breathtaking Miradouro da Graça. Refreshments will be served.

I’m an artist who has been showing in institutions and art galleries across Europe and the United States for over a decade. I moved to Lisbon from New York for an exhibition I had at the Gulbenkian Museum in 2018. Since then, I’ve come to realize that Lisbon is an amazing place to live and work.

Where you'll be

We will meet in the picturesque Augusto Gil garden. Then, we will walk along several charming nearby streets to view the sites where the works were once installed. At the end, I will show you why Graça is my favorite neighborhood in Lisbon — its fabulous views — by hosting you at my home on the Caracol da Graça where you can step onto my private terrace overlooking the castle and city while we further discuss Buren’s work over wine and cheese.
