Visual Street Performance: Urban Art in Lisbon, 2009

by Lisbon Apartments on December 3, 2009

Visual Street Performance, Lisbon 2009

Visual Street Performance, Lisbon 2009

Visual Street Performance (VSP), now in its 5th Edition, is the largest Street Art event in Portugal, which this year will take place simultaneously in Libon and Oporto.

It involves a collective exhibition and parallel activities with music, painting sessions, and graffiti events with specially invited artists from Portugal and abroad. There will also be debates, films and, for the first time, a “chalk battle” open to all those who wish to take part.

The objective of the VSP collective is to extend the workspace of these urban artists within both indoor and outdoor areas in order to develop and explore new technical and artistic possibilities. It also promotes their work to a wider public, now that urban art is truly a global phenomenon, in order to share experiences and results.

The first VSP exhibition was in 2005 in the old Interpress building in Bairro Alto, and it immediately became a benchmark for urban art in Portugal. Through the work of the VSP members, the legitimate existence of graffiti was recognised as an artistic activity in indoor environments, allowing for dialogue with a wider audience.

Several yearly editions succeeded this first event, in 2006 still in the Interpress building, and in 2007 in the Braço de Prata factory. During this 2007 edition, space was given to proposals of both individual and collective creativity in different media, from mural painting to photography, and including graphic expression and object personalization. A book was also launched, “Visual Street Performance”, a first serious attempt to publish information about the collective.

Visual Street Performance takes place from 26th November to 13th December in the Escola Primária school in Rua das Gaivotas. It is open on Monday, Thursday, Friday from 6pm to 2am, Saturdays from 3pm to 2am and Sundays and holidays from 3pm to 11pm.

Films are shown on Sundays and holidays from 7pm to 9:30pm and live painting takes place throughout the event.
