O Armário

Ⓝ Colégio das Artes

O Armário is both a body and an object, a display device that has been making its career in Lisbon’s iconic street Calçada da Estrela. Curated by Benedita Pestana, throughout the last eight years this piece of furniture has been the stage for more than forty interventions by artists of all predilections. Unapologetically convoking Marcel Duchamp’s La Boîte-en-valise, or Robert Filliou’s Galerie Légitime, O Armário is done and undone at the hands of the artists who accept the challenge of creating a work for it to display. In 2022 and 2023, this project will leave its usual premises in Lisbon and will travel around Portugal on a journey that starts here in Coimbra, where it will be presenting an installation by the Portuguese writer, artist, and activist Gisela Casimiro.
