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.
Museu Zer0 @ Summer in Tavira 2021
Museu Zer0 presents its program for Summer in Tavira 2021.
From the 14th of July to the 15th of August, at the Ermida de São Roque, the piece S(o)al, by Miguel Carvalhais and Pedro Tudela, will be on display, created specifically for this occasion.
From August 17th to September 17th, also at Ermida de São Roque, Cloisters of Igreja do Carmo and Municipal Library of Tavira, music by Luis Conceição on digital image by Flow Productions can be listened to, in an exploration between analogue and digital art , being projected the very stories that inspired the musician to produce his works, two of them created for Museu Zer0.
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 2021, two exhibitions are presented in the city of Tavira.
