The Lisbon-based curatorial duo Filipa Oliveira + Miguel Amado is presenting “If you don’t know what the South is it’s simply because you are from the North”, a project curated for NO SOUL FOR SALE – A Festival of Independents, organized by the X Initiative in New York City. This project includes works by Julieta Arada, Carolina Caycedo, Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen, Runo Lagomarsino, Lotte Lindner & Till Steinbrenner, Mads Lynnerup, Carlos Motta and Miguel Palma. The works on view respond, comment, and speculate on globalization, displacement and identity on the current international art scene.

 

Lisbon, June 15th – X is a not-for-profit initiative of the global contemporary art community that will exist for one year and present exhibitions in four phases. X will feature durational artist interventions, site-specific projects, historical in-depth exhibitions, one-night performances, lectures and weekly events. Questions posed in the form of programming will address relevant and pressing issues pertaining to the changing landscape of art.

 

Held at X from June 24 through June 28, NO SOUL FOR SALE – A Festival of Independents will bring together the most exciting, creative and respected not-for-profit centers, alternative institutions, artists’ collectives and independent enterprises from around the world that contribute to the international art scene by inventing new strategies for the distribution of information and by supporting a diverse cultural program.

 

X has invited 38 organizations and teams to travel to New York City to present themselves, their programs and the artists they support. Among the participants is Filipa Oliveira + Miguel Amado, a curatorial duo based in Lisbon devoted to the presentation of the work of emerging and mid-career international artists, both through exhibition programs and other projects in different contexts in Portugal and abroad. For NO SOUL FOR SALE, Filipa Oliveira + Miguel Amado have curated the project that includes works by Julieta Aranda, Carolina Caycedo, Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen, Runo Lagomarsino, Lotte Lindner & Till Steinbrenner, Mads Lynnerup, Carlos Motta and Miguel Palma.

 

The title of the project presented by Filipa Oliveira + Miguel Amado is borrowed from Runo Lagomarsino’s work If you don’t know what the South is it’s simply because you are from the North, 2008. The project considers the cultural geopolitics involved in the invitation made to a Lisbon-based curatorial team to show in New York in the context of a “festival of independents”. The works on view comprise sculpture, performance and text, and respond, comment, and speculate on globalization, displacement, and identity on the current international art scene.
