IDB Lisbon Innovation and Design Building

IDB Lisbon - Innovation and Design Building Lisbon is a place where innovation meets the next generation of office life in Lisbon for our tenants and the city. An inclusive community, where the tenants and visitors are able to connect, collaborate and be inspired. (from IDB Lisbon)

I came across this place on instagram, and it catch quickly my attention so the other day I went to check it out and it's amazing. They organise dj-sets, events, skate and roller skate classes. It's also a great place to take kits.

One more things, beers are cheap.

They have a current exhibition called Letreiro Galeria

Letreiro Galeria's first ever outdoor exhibition is at IDB Rooftop! Entitled “Establishments”, this installation lights up the rooftop with the neons of different commercial establishments and traditional Portuguese words.

PichiAvo // solo exhibition

Starting next Friday 11 November till 30 December 2022 at Underdogs

In the course of their singular practice, the duo formed by the Spanish artists Pichi and Avo (known under the agglutination PichiAvo) has been weaving a skilful reflection based on the unusual – yet functional and appealing – encounter between the languages of contemporary graffiti and classical Greco-Roman art, between the production in outdoor settings (street) and indoor settings (gallery).

Used to Be – a solo show that presents an entirely new body of works – gives continuity to this exploration, with a twist. If PichiAvo's art stems from graffiti and muralism – activities based on the use of the wall and the public space, where ephemerality and chance determine the integrity and the lifespan of the works –, Used to Be synthesises and materialises these issues in the shape of an ingenious staging which places a (simulated) past in dialogue with the present.

Steve McCurry. ICONS: An Extraordinary Photo Exhibition



Artur Bordalo (Lisbon, 1987) uses as his artist name Bordalo II, which he chose as a tribute to his grandfather, Real Bordalo, in order to promote a continuity and reinvention of his artistic legacy. His work currently focuses on questioning the materialistic and greedy society of which he is (also) a part. (From visitportugal)
