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.

 

Welcome October and the academic duties

October starts with the regular visa application to India and ends with the travel to it. In between, a lot of work will take place. Like always, India is not a vacation site to me so, work, meetings, research are on the agenda. Of course, occasional friends visits also.

But before getting myself into an aeroplane where is what is going to happen:

International Conferences

Diu e os Diuenses – Perspetivas Multidisciplinares

Venue: Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa e ISCTE-Instituto Universitario de Lisboa

When: October 27-28.

Organization: Hugo Cardoso | Centro de Linguística da Universidade de Lisboa and Pedro Pombo | IIT Gandhinagar; CEI-IUL

diu-poster-a3-imagemThe island of Diu, off the coast of the modern state of Gujarat, in India, currently has a relatively small population (around 40,000 inhabitants) and a peaceful atmosphere that sharply contrast with a remarkable built heritage and camouflage a history of great centrality and dynamism. Despite the significant amount of scholarly research done on Diu and the Diuese in different fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences, Diu is still commonly treated in articulation with (and overshadowed by) regions like Daman or Goa, which often dilutes the specificities of this territory. This congress places Diu and its inhabitants at the very centre of the debate, and from there explores the multiplicity of connections they establish with other parts of the world.

The Book is out!

CYMERA_20160319_173335The book launch yesterday was amazingly surprising, it was very dear to me to get such wonderful and dedicated audience that words can hardly explain. Professor Vitor Serrão, from Artis Institute in UNL, made a very welcoming and positive presentation and Paulo Simões Rodrigues, director of CHAIA, exalted the importance of Art History research, like this now published, to help focus on the role of investigation in the research centre.

My former PhD advisor and co-author of the book, made the necessary insight to the importance of retable art of Goa, detached of Lisbon and more closer to Italy then previously thought, thanks to the extensive inventory that I’ve gathered since 2007, of almost 1000 altarpieces.

Among a crowded room, specialists like Hélder Carita, José Meco, Ângelo da Silveira, Luis Cabral de Oliveira, Cláudia Pereira, Hilda Frias, José Pestana, André Varela Remígio, Jason Keith Fernandes, just to name a few, surely powered the debate around the importance of conservation politics in India to help preserve important works of art, altarpieces included. Also, I can’t put to words the importantce of the support of family and friends that showed at the venue and also those that couldn’t come but sent wonderful messages.

The book is now out for sale. It can be found in Museu Oriente in Lisbon, CHAIA in Évora and also in the collection website Colecção Promontória Monográfica História da Arte.
