«In the context of the Lisbon Art Week, the international contemporary art exhibition "PARAGONE: What's with mediums today?" will open on May 26, in three exhibition centres: Cape Verde Cultural Center; Water Museum - Barbadinhos Steam Pumping Station and Patriarchal Reservoir.
The PARAGONE exhibition offers a guided tour program that promotes the rediscovery in three stages of a historical heritage—unknown to many—linked to the city of Lisbon’s water supply.
"PARAGONE: What's with mediums today?" presents a very particular reflection on the notion of "mediums" in current artistic practice. Through the renewal and explorative deconstruction of the ancestral debate over the hierarchical classification of artistic disciplines in the early modern era, the PARAGONE art exhibition reveals how long-established boundaries between arts and crafts are now becoming eminently permeable.»
