This is a past event.
The exhibition Reading Solves: Álvaro Lapa and Literature was devised and planned by curator Oscar Faria, as though it were a book: it held a cover, a prologue, chapters and an epilogue, each with its own place in Culturgest’s galleries. Focusing on Álvaro Lapa’s (1939-2006) well established and close rapport between the creative process underlying visual arts and literature, the show brought together an unprecedented set of paintings, documents and other works by Lapa, all gathered around the exhibition’s core – the artist's library, which was moved in its entirety into the exhibition gallery.
A year later, Óscar Faria and Bruno Marchand talk about Álvaro Lapa as they introduce the exhibition catalogue, a book that documents, backs and expands the public’s former experience at Culturgest. In the words of Óscar Faria, the research that led us to include in the book materials we were not able to display in the exhibition is unveiled, as well as the way by which they make it possible for us to deepen our understanding of Álvaro Lapa’s rich and singular rapport between painting and literature.
This talk also signals Culturgest’s new digital presence – a library of media contents.
