Faro Municipal Museum reopens with two exhibitions, from the contemporary art cycle "Eklektikós", by Susana de Medeiros and João Paulo Serafim, to be inaugurated on April 6th.
"Thirty Seven", by Susana de Medeiros, designates an imaginary line taken as a starting point to which corresponds the same degree of latitude in both hemispheres.
"The artist speaks to us of mirrored latitudes, of two territories situated at partially coincident latitudes: between 36º to 38º North in the Algarve and 37º to 40º South in Chile - in the regions of Bio-Bio, Araucania and Los Rios. It is this geography that delimits the territory of artistic research by Susana de Medeiros, who takes the territory as a laboratory in which "displacement" is a cognitive and projectual instrument that generates knowledge," says the Artadentro association.
This exhibition also includes walks, with routes of up to 8 kilometers.
On May 2nd, the walk will take place in Vila do Bispo (10h30), led by Catarina Oliveira and Mara Taquelim, with the meeting point at the entrance to Salema, next to the bus stop.
On the 16th, the walk will be in Aljezur, starting at 10.30am, led by Susana de Medeiros, Christin Lidzba and Ana Celorico Machado. The meeting point will be Café André.
Finally, on May 23rd, the walk will take place separately, at 3pm, in Vila do Bispo, with the starting point at the Hermitage of Nossa Senhora de Guadalupe. The walk will be led by Ana Carla Cabrita and Beatriz Cardoso.

The other exhibition that will mark the reopening of the Faro Museum is "A Interminable Taxonomic Task", by João Paulo Serafim.
In this exhibition, which brings together photographs taken between 2009 and the present, João Paulo Serafim gives us a glimpse of a particular artistic journey, in which he proposes a contemporary reading of the dystopian realities with which we are confronted in our daily lives.
When it reopens, the Faro Municipal Museum will be open Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 6pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 10.30am to 5pm, closing on Mondays and public holidays.
