The National Museum of Contemporary Art in Lisbon receives from November 24th to February 2022 its local edition of Loops.Expanded – an international network of curators and programmers focused on the exhibiting and researching the loop format in video art and moving image.
The project continues and broadens up a project created in 2015 under the name Loops.Lisboa, at the time a national competition created by Duplacena, in close collaboration with MNAC; five editions of which were exhibited in the museum.
Now, the second edition of Loops.Expanded in Lisbon @ MNAC presents a selection of works from an International Open Call. Of the works selected by the network of curators, 3 will be exhibited in Lisbon. There will be shown for 3 weeks each in a 4 month cycle curated by Emília Tavares (MNAC), Irit Batsry and Alisson Avila (Loops.Expanded).
A parallel program consisting of interviews with the artists and a closing conference will be announced shortly.
