One more year I have participated at the congress 'Criadores Sobre outras Obras' (CSO) (i.e. Creators about other artworks), celebrated at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Lisbon (Portugal), presenting the artwork of Marcos Covelo and his passion about rediscovering Painting in the expanded field.

My project Once upon a time... has been one of those selected, in the category of 'artistic intervention projects', in the last call for the Zona 'C' of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). Specifically, the installation presented will be released sometime in December of 2016 or January of 2017.
Last Friday 23rd of October, at 8.00 pm, we inaugurated A propósito do debuxo (i.e. Regarding to Drawing) at the Torrente Ballester Centre of Ferrol (Spain).

It is the latest project of the research group MODO (Ways of Artistic Knowledge) of the University of Vigo (Spain). The document entitled 'neste momento:' (i.e. in this time:) is a catalogue-book about the group exhibition under the same title which was opened in late 2014 at the RAC Foundation of Pontevedra (Spain).
This forum for the exchange of portfolios and master lectures, is complemented by the organization of 26 group exhibitions in leading museums or art galleries of the different regions of origin of the faculties within the project. My destination is going to be Lithuania!
