Round-up of Exhibitions in Photography and Territory - Very Typical


We close the 2022 season of the Round-up in Photography and Territory with the series "Very Typical", by Tiago Casanova. Made in Lisbon, it crosses different exhibition formulas with somewhat ambiguous and disturbing images, made of pieces and fragments that sometimes seem to be shown, sometimes to be manipulated, such is the proximity and materiality of the objects. Using the tile as artifact, image, and conceptual motif of the work, this is a work that questions, somewhat ironically, the attitude, the belief, the motivation that in the last few years has contributed to Lisbon being transformed at a frenetic pace due to real estate speculation, mass tourism, visa gold, economic and political pressures. This exhibition and the collection of objects and images reflect on the territory in a particular way, through a young artist whose work is always reflective, refined, careful, and which we are pleased to present at Casa dos Cubos.

It opens on September 10 at Casa dos Cubos and is on display until November 6, 2022.
