Arquipélago - Contemporary Arts Centre to host artistic residencies in July

The Regional Directorate for Culture, through Arquipélago - Contemporary Arts Centre, promotes several activities in July, with special emphasis on the "Sonic Geometry" project and events organised under the "Walk&Talk" festival.
In the context of "Sonic Geometry," a project curated by Nuno Faria and Nicolau Tudela that has running in partnership with RTP since May, the Contemporary Arts Centre in Ribeira Grande will host, until July 2, the Artistic Residency by Pedro Tropa and Ricardo Jacinto.
This residency is followed by residencies promoted by Francisco Janes and Laetitia Morais, starting July 3, and by Miguel Leal and Pedro Tudela, starting July 18.
These artists will carry out research, creation and production works, which will be later added to the exhibition cycles held under the "Sonic Geometry" project.
Next month, Arquipélago will again partner with Walk&Talk by hosting a number of events organised within this arts festival, namely a piece of the Public Art circuit by artists Martin Howse and Jamie Allen - Shift Register, which will be installed at the Contemporary Arts Centre. Moreover, there will be two performances to take place at the Blackbox.
On July 6, André Uerba presents "Burn Time," a performance developed under the artistic residency taking at Archipelago since June 25, while "Turning Backs" by Lígia Soares with Rita Vilhena and Diogo Alvim will be presented on July 11.
