Following its opening last October, the new Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology MAAT in Lisbon reopens to the public with two major exhibitions that take up the whole building: Utopia/Dystopia—A Paradigm Shift, curated by Pedro Gadanho, João Laia and Susana Ventura—and Order and Progress by Mexican artist Héctor Zamora, curated by Inês Grosso.
Today, Héctor Zamora presents a new version of the performance/installation Order and Progress, in which the remains of traditional Portuguese fishing boats from different coastal regions temporarily occupy MAAT’s Oval Gallery. The performance, previously presented at the Palais de Tokyo in 2016, will take place in the Oval Gallery today at 6pm, coinciding with the museum’s opening to the public.
