Remade in Portugal returns this month to the Galeria Fundação EDP in Porto. This unique exhibition, in partnership with the Agência Portuguesa do Ambiente, asks artists and designers to create contemporary works using recycled materials that reflect on issues concerning the environment. Remade in Portugal runs through 17 November.
The theme for this seventh edition of Remade in Portugal is “Remade in Viagem” (“Remade in Travel”). All design pieces, art works and activities will be inspired by journeys, travel and routes to take to reflect on what is best for the environment and the world.
In addition to the exhibition at the Galeria Fundação EDP, many parallel activities are planned.
■ SHELTER – a large format installation by Gabriela Gomes, place outside, adjacent to the gallery.
■ LITERARY CONFERENCES – open to the public, with discussions on the theme.
■ DRAW YOUR MAP – children draw their own maps on two large walls set aside for this activity.
■ EXPERIMENTAL WORKSHOP – free with pre-registration, Angela Garcia invites students to reuse materials household or industrial waste, to create new pieces that will go on display during the exhibition period.
