Tavira 500

Presentation of Installations and 4 Concerts of Exploratory and Contemplative Electronic Music

On 16 March 1520, King Manuel made Tavira a city. As part of the celebrations to mark the 500th anniversary of this event, the Museu Zer0 set out to be part of the celebrations of the "path conquered, looking to the future".

The Museu Zer0 organised a cycle of events supported by digital art, which supported the celebration organised by the City Council, allowing the city and municipality of Tavira to be given greater visibility for its contemporaneity, originality and aesthetic values.

Through the programme presented, which also served as a preparatory ground for the BALSA Festival - Algarve Biennial of Arts, Light and Sound, to be organised in the coming years, the aim was to show the importance of Tavira, which was, for a long period in history, the Algarve's main city, an important trading port, a strategic place in Portuguese expansion and a land of navigators. The marks of that era are still visible in the city today, in its urban planning, its riverside profile and in places like convents and churches.

The project was designed to help create an image of a contemporary Tavira, but also of the Algarve as a modern, creative and innovative region that preserves and commemorates the achievements of the past and celebrates the future.
