The artistic residency lead by portuguese artist Raquel André opened a new cycle for Festival Verão Azul. As of this year, the festival assumes a new format of a biennial event, and it’s next edition will take place in October 2019 in Loulé, Lagos and Faro.
Raquel André challenged two artists from Algarve to participate in her final creation. The residency was held from 13 to the 19 of May at Teatro das Figuras in Faro. The four residencies and the laboratory taking place this year will feed into the festival’s next edition.
An open talk inviting the participation of the local community took place the 17 of May under the pretext of this residency, in which Raquel André talked about her creative process and the “collections” she is up to. It was a very close and relaxed moment leading all participants into the artist “ephemeral” universe.
