Portraits from Lockdown

18-28 May, Largo Residencias


Confronted with the global lockdowns caused by the Covid 19 pandemic artists everywhere re-examined themselves in their art work. This exhibition showcases artists living in Lisbon who’s art work evolved by the changing circumstances of the world and it is reflected in their artistic expression.

On May 18th, the day of the opening it will be exactly 3 years since Portugal first lifted any restrictions on movement in the country. Residents of Lisbon emerged from what was going to be the first of multiple hard lockdowns. The exhibition aims to examine the artistic expression from these isolating periods and set the artists in parallel to one another; a group show but curated through the theme of “self-portraiture” which we interpret broadly as not all the work is purely figurative but is nevertheless introspective.

Together we recognize our own experiences from this period in the art that emerged from it. We recognize ourselves in the images, words, concepts and the feelings they convey. It reminds us of our own struggles with isolation, loneliness, and fear. It connects us to the oddity of it all, the humor, love, and sometimes even new found joys.
