o porto visto de fora

I was co-curator of this exhibition, in partnership with Miguel Neiva and Luisa Do Valle. The exhibition “O Porto visto de Fora” (Porto Seen From Outside) gathered a collection of posters about the City of Porto, developed by students of Design of the School of Advertising and Marketing ESPM, Brazil. In the adjacent room to the main showroom it was graffitied a collective mural entitled “You Can?”, where all were invited to participate, later on this mural was finished by Portuguese artist Frederico Draw.
On topics related to “Design and the City” and to “Design and Public Space,” the round tables were moderated by me.
