There are four days left to visit the third edition of the Anozero – Coimbra Contemporary Art Biennial. 2019 edition, entitled “A Terceira Margem”, curated by Agnaldo Farias and assistant curator of Lígia Afonso and Nuno de Brito Rocha, ends on December 29, Sunday.
Inaugurated on November 2, “The Third Margin” rested on three pillars: exhibition, activation program, and book. The exhibition features works by 39 artists, half of them with commissioned work, in different parts of the city, strongly activating their architectural and intangible heritage, partially qualified by UNESCO.
Apart from the occupation of the unique Santa Clara-a-Nova Convent – which also houses meeting and leisure spaces, a bookstore and a cafeteria -, the biennial spans the streets of the city center (Chiado Building, Sala da Cidade [ closed on Sunday] and Avenida Galleries), the buildings of the University of Coimbra (College of Arts and Science Museum – Chimico Laboratory and Natural History Gallery) and the spaces of the Coimbra Plastic Arts Circle (CAPC Headquarters and Mermaid).
The participating artists are Alexandra Pirici, Ana María Montenegro, Ana Vaz, Anna Boghiguian, Antonio Olaio, Belén Uriel, Bouchra Khalili, Bruno Zhu, Cadu, Daniel Melim, Daniel Senise, David Claerbout, Eugenia Mussa, Joanna Piotrowska, John Gabriel, João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva, Jose Bechara, Jose Spaniol, Julius von Bismarck, Laura Vinci, Luis Felipe Ortega, Luís Lázaro Matos, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Magdalena Jitrik, Maria Condado, Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela, Marilá Dardot, Mattia Denisse, Maya Watanabe, Meriç Algün, Przemek Pyszczek, Renato Ferrão, Rita Ferreira, Steve McQueen, Susan Hiller and Tomás Cunha Ferreira (who, in addition to participating in the exhibition, presents ShipShape’s parallel curation, an exhibition around visual poetry, concrete and experimental)
