Diálogos do Sagrado

2017-03-21_152615Amanhã, pelas 18h30 no Museu do Oriente, estarei a palestrar acerca das máscaras rituais Bhuta do Sul de Karnataka, integrado no ciclo de conferencias “A Índia Visual” que pretende pensar a cultura visual da Índia como ponto de partida para a reflexão de diversas temáticas: arte, religião, política, consumo, género, publicidade, media, entre outras.
Estas sessões, que se desdobram em conferências, mesas redondas e mostras de filmes/documentação audiovisual com a presença de investigadores, académicos e outras personalidades ligadas à Índia e às múltiplas dimensões da cultura visual mostram coleções do museu para além do espaço de exposição, uma oportunidade a não perder.

 

Back to Portugal, Goa and back

Long time no see!

Yes, in fact, my bad. It was another of those intense travels for research and then festivities settled in (Xmas and new years eve) on my return from India and it was family time.

But then again, just a few day after I’ve returned to India in January as part of a research team De Artibus in Auream Goa – Contextualization of the Influence of the Royal Lisbon Workshop and its pictorial technique beyond national territory. The project is funded by FCT-Foundation, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Orient Foundation and gathers experts from several institutions in Portugal, cooperating with also a large number of institutions in India.

It was an intense end of the year with an intense start of a new one. Until my return.
