Downtown Chiado 2016 International Art Exhibition
Lisbon, Portugal’s Meeting Art Gallery is organizing DC116 – Downtown Chiado 2016 from February 8-13, 2016. This is the third edition of an international exhibition that will showcase an outstanding selection of contemporary global artists in the Downtown Chiado Arts District of Lisbon, marking the 6th global exhibition to date that has been organized by this gallery. Vernissage and opening day on February 6, 2016 at 5pm local.
The curator for DC 16 is Goncalo Madeira with support from international artist Natalia Gromicho, one of Portugal’s best known artists. They are the driving forces behind the success of Meeting Art Gallery and the international art exhibitions in Downtown Chiado. Gromicho founded Meeting Art Gallery in 2013, her goal was to mix the traditional atelier with an open gallery space hosting exhibits, events, art performances and live painting. “The idea is simple, make a private space in an open space, without limitation to any type of audience, without obstacles, without barriers. Anyone can see, taste, touch, paint.” says Gromicho.
The gallery is located in the historical area of Espaço Chiado, a shopping district in Chiado that was built to preserve the “Ferdinand Wall”, a wall that protected Lisbon from attacks during the period of the Middle Ages. Chiado is one of the most iconic and traditional neighborhoods of Lisbon. Located in one of the most desirable spots between Bairro Alto and Downtown, its location is very privileged, with access from the street Rua da Misericórdia or the street Rua Nova da Trindade, right next to Trindade Theater – making the Meeting Art Gallery a very popular attraction with consistent exposure and traffic, which is part of the strength and success of the gallery’s international art exhibitions. The gallery address is Espaço Chiado – Rua da Misericórdia 12–20, Lisboa 1200-273 Portugal.
