PADA is an artist led, not for profit, arts association, unique in its support to artists. As a cultural resource, PADA promotes interaction between national and international artists, the local community and surrounding region. Set in a derelict industrial park with a history dating back to 1885, PADA offers artists time and space to develop their practice through the exploration of technique and process. PADA is located in the picturesque town of Barreiro, a medium-sized city on the South Bank of the River Tagus (20 minutes from Lisbon by ferry). Barreiro was the main industrial city in Portugal and Spain until 1970 and is known for its political and industrial history. Since the 70’s, Barreiro has been slowly redefining its identity, without losing its main characteristics inherited from history. Barreiro is known for its cooperation, creativity, resilience and hospitality, combined with a strong sense of identity and connection with the ever-present river Tagus. PADA is located in the old textile area of CUF’s Industrial Park, and today, is surrounded by light industry and various fabrication businesses. Large sections of the area are in ruins and the remains of what was once a large industrial power now stand empty and […]

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.

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 […]
