Dancer-Danger – About movement, emotion and imagination

Leiria | Culture | 26 de junho a 25 de setembro

Dancer-Danger – About movement, emotion and imagination gathers the works of 46 artists from the most varied artistic languages. It will be open between June 26th and September 25th at NovaOgiva Gallery, in Óbidos, and at the Caldas da Rainha Arts Centre, namely at Espaço da Concas, Atelier 6 and Leopoldo Almeida Museum.

The act of imagining implies the composition of desires and precedes the act of execution. It is in this choreographed movement of the imagination, in the search for its form, that the artistic work emerges. The collective of artists and the works presented here – in public and together for the first time – mirror the risk of this dance that is intended to be totally free, with no guarantee of safety: dancing and making art must be dangerous, subversive, emotional and challenging acts.

Dancer-Danger is a collective exhibition of the finalists of the Degree in Visual Arts 2020/2021, curated and produced by the 2nd year of the Degree in Cultural Programming and Production and mediated by the 1st year of the same degree.
