DUPLEX | Artists in Residence is an independent artist-run-space, composed of studios, a residency program and a gallery. DUPLEX occupies an area of 1000m2 distributed by 3 main floors. The first floor is occupied by our gallery. In the second floor 10 long-term studios receive artists living in Lisbon, as well as our office. On the third floor additional 8 studios and a curator’s office are dedicated to our residency program. Seeking to stimulate creative processes, experimentation and plastic production as well as the discourse that these dynamics originate, DUPLEX presents itself as a privileged territory for the coexistence of different artists, different productions and different ways of thinking about the work of art and its context. Valuing advances and setbacks, valuing error, failure, and disruption as participants in contemporary praxis, the entire structure and functioning of DUPLEX seeks, in addition to celebrate the final results, to recognize the conceptual and procedural richness of artistic creation, and bring the public closer to it. For resident artists, DUPLEX’s artistic residency program allows a quick insertion in the artistic community of Lisbon, offering the possibility, time and space to develop and show their work. With guest visits, conversations, organized visits to studios […]

EGEU is an independent cultural space in Lisbon first opened in September 2019. Born out of the urge to claim a space of fruitful freedom, one of its key intentions is to facilitate artistic, cultural and editorial initiatives without market-related concerns. Thus, since its foundation, EGEU has kept a multidisciplinary and active program, having organized exhibitions, performances, discussions, literary projects, residencies and screenings alongside emerging artists, writers and cultural agents. One of our major aims is to make sure that no one at EGEU is constrained by the outcome of their work. Rather than a product, we believe that artistic experiment and critique should be taken as parts of a process. If art and culture ought to be free, then they must not be limited to any pre-determined worthiness. So as artists. In an era when everything is labeled, categorized and reproducible, as if born mature, we look forward to securing that there is always space to start again. Instead of attempting to introduce artists to the market and institutional spaces, EGEU intends to oppose that logic by being a space available for those who seek one (and are frequently unable to find it). Challenging, criticizing, tracing new paths, EGEU […]
