Carpe Diem

Past: March 16 → April 1, 2017

Carpe Diem Art and Research (CDAP) is a center for contemporary art and curatorial research based in Lisbon’s sixteenth-century Pombal Palace. Since Brazilian curator Paulo Reis founded the center in 2009, CDAP has presented multidisciplinary exhibitions and public programs that engage in the cultural life of Lisbon.

In 2017, the Kogan Gallery and CDAP became partners on the basis of common values and vision of the art market. Art creates a social bond, it is food for thoughts about our society and that is why it should be addressed to the greatest number of people.

CDAP organized itself in a way that allows them to remain open to a broad public and to encourage the creativity of numerous emerging artists, by selling affortable but high-quality pieces of art. These limited editions, made by the artists as a result of the residency program and offered the Carpe Diem Art and Research, are made to generate the interest of new potential collectors of contemporary art. This project is thus a natural extension of the contemporary art center curatorial program and immersed in a strong new model of cultural sustainability.

From the 16th of march to the 1st of april, Kogan Gallery will exhibit about 60 limited editions from CDAP’s collection, and will organize a conference by its director and curator Lourenco Egreja on the 18th of March, at 3pm, to put light on the art center’s functioning and philosophy.

We, at the Kogan Gallery, like to think that these limited editions, hanged on our walls, are pieces of memories we will love to share with you.
