For nine months, seventeen teenagers from Lisbon and Almada, aged between 16 and 19, played the role of curators, having as their starting point the contemporary art collection of Caixa Geral de Depósitos. Without any previous experience, they began as individuals and gradually moved to collective collaboration, ending the process working in unison. They learned more than each of them expected to learn: listening, negotiating tastes and interests; they formed bonds, created support networks and displayed a spirit of solidarity and, by the time they had completed this journey, their way of looking at and understanding art had changed.
Choreography of Attention is therefore a collective creation. A group of different works that communicated individually and collectively with each curator. It is through these that these young people tell the story of the path that they have followed until now, and through their arrangement, what they have learned. A choreography of attention to be experienced by each visitor.
