Conferência Internacional de Arte & Criatividade Urbana de Lisboa
3, 4 e 5 de Julho de 2014
Over the past decades, certain creative actions in the city have centered the debate around whether considering them an aggression on the city and its users, whether building them as not only a sociological and anthropological response but also, an “artistic” or constructive one to the built environment.
However, and even though a consensus has not been reached, the focus on these practices and their actors has increased considerably, inside and outside the academia. In 2008, the Tate exhibition, Street Art at Tate, re-centered the debate around these practices, being preceded and followed by further exhibits in museums, galleries and other institutions; in the editorial quadrant, several authors have focused their attention and research in creative actions on the city (such as Graffiti and Street Art).
Lisbon has been “put in the map” of such phenomenon.
The Lisbon Street Art & Urban Creativity International Conference will unite the interests of anthropologists, art historians, architects, urban planners, designers, artists and institutions as well as a wide diversity of visual arts and cultural studies researchers.
