Portugal Arte 09, on view from September 19 - October 31, 2009, is a focused survey of art and urbanism throughout downtown Lisbon.

Portugal Arte 09 will utilize major public and private areas as well as interstitial urban spaces to showcase provocative contemporary works, ascending from the Baixa business district along Avenue da Libardade to the Parque Eduardo VII. This critical endeavor will include curated group exhibitions, site specific installations, and commissioned public sculpture projects addressing themes related to contemporary life and urban social conditions.

The architecture practice of Johnston Marklee have been commissioned to curate solo projects in public spaces. Curators Garth Weiser and Johannes Vanderbeek will organize group exhibitions exploring the festival’s theme in depth.
