I’m honored to partner with PADA as curator-in-residence this April 2019!
PADA is an artist-led, non-profit arts organization based in Barreiro in Lisbon’s South Bay, founded in 2018 by Tim Ralston and Diana Cerezino. Set in a derelict industrial park with history dating back to 1885, PADA offers artists time and space to develop their practice through the exploration of technique and process.
Bringing together like minded artists, PADA is a contemporary art space seeking to promote and facilitate local and international artists through the studio, residency and exhibitions programs. PADA’s programs suit contemporary artists who work in a variety of disciplines and mediums and are looking to engage in dialogue and the exchange of knowledge and skills in the fabrication and execution of art.
