Silver Night of Projections + Ermo's Concert
Following the concept of stimulating photographic practise and the new shapes of the Photographic fields, the Festival prepared a night specially dedicated to projections where the “discovery authors” for the 2015 edition, selected by the Open Call, will be revealed.
In virtue of the numerous applications received and given its outstanding quality, during this edition the festival seeks to go ahead with a platform of Projection for the breakthrough authors, through the event “SILVER NIGHT PROJECTION“ which allows a productive dialogue not only with the city but also with the national and international art circuit.
On the other hand, in an attempt to engage the city, we challenged a local band called Ermo, one of the major musical references of the city, who accepted to give rythm and sound to the selected portfolios, a project included in the cycle Trabalho da Casa, promoted by GNRation.
António Costa and Bernardo Barbosa will create a soundtrack for the artists projects, selected by Encontros da Imagem. By the sound of ERMO, it will be possible to travel around the multiple visions from the different authors, through powerful and innovative ways. The music produced by the authors of the recent album “Amor vezes quatro” falls between the acoustic, indie and post-folk genres and promises a voyage through imagery by the visual universe of the discovery authors of the Open Call promoted by the Festival.
The selection presents photographers from all over the world in a documental exploration of contemporary photography. The result is a slide presentation exploring the contrasts and similarities – a visual narrative about the desires and illusions of the human being.
The projection will be exhibited at Barbado Gallery in Lisbon during the Festival, so to that extent this circulation hopes to contribute to the reinforcement of the emerging projects and establish cooperation with the partner institutions.
