Upon invitations of several municipalities and organizers of events related to digital art, Museu Zer0 has already shown exhibitions and events that will support the gradual presentation of our space, which is currently under construction, and in which our own exhibition spaces and other digital art initiatives will be created.
What's going on
One of Museu Zer0’s specific focuses is events and exhibitions related to digital art.
In 2020, Museu Zer0 exhibited digital art as part of celebrations for the 500th anniversary of the city of Tavira.
On the 16th March 1520, King Manuel granted Tavira the status of city. As part of celebrations held for the 500th anniversary of this event, Museu Zer0 volunteered to be part of these celebrations of the “path conquered, with eyes set firmly on the future”.
Museu Zer0 organised a series of events underpinned by digital art, which supported the celebrations organised by the City Council and shined a spotlight on the city and municipality of Tavira thanks to their contemporary nature, originality and aesthetic values.
Through these events, which also served as groundwork for the Algarve’s BALSA Festival – Art, Light and Sound Biennale, which will be held in the coming years, the aim was to show the importance of the city of Tavira. Having been the most important city in the Algarve for a long time, Tavira brought together some key factors, including its merchant port, its strategic location in terms of Portuguese expansion and the fact that it was a land of navigators.
Museu Zer0 is committed to showing digital art through exhibitions held throughout the Algarve region. In the summer of 2020, the “O mapa e o território” series was shown at the Centro de Artes e Ofícios de S. Brás; an exhibition made up of interactive installations and photography.
