Do it Yourself (2016)

group exhibition by Unstable Media 

This exhibition joins Portuguese speaking artists to focus on the notions of work of art, museum object and participation. We understand that curation has the potential to engage visitors in an experience that challenges their expectations about the representation of art. Thus, we propose that in addition to the instructions that are gathered here, visitors experience different concepts of works of art, showing how the norms and conventions of exhibitions vary in relation to the concept of art in which one is present.

Do it Yourself – Art by Instruction is curated by the art group Unstable Media, founded in 2015 by Ana Carvalho, Margarida Carvalho, Sofia Ponte and paula roush. It is dedicated to the organization of art exhibitions related to digital media, editing, performance, and participation that comment on the complexity of the contemporary moment.

Participants: Lívia Flores, Mónica de Miranda, Daniel Moreira, Susana Pedrosa, Inês Ponte, Patrícia Portela, João Ricardo, paula roush, Luísa Salvador, Susana Mendes Silva, Adriana Tabalipa, Rui Torres e Nuno Ferreira, Marta Wengorovius.

It took place between April 17 to May 21, 2016 at Sput&nik The Window, Porto.
