Lisbon Art Weekend

November 11 - 13, 2022: The Lisbon Art Weekend focuses on the Portuguese capital's ever-growing contemporary art scene. Almost every week, new galleries, residencies and other platforms for contemporary art open. The city has a large group of local artists, but is also attracting more and more creators from the rest of Europe. Together we explore the galleries in this dynamic and thriving city. Lisbon is the place to discover new artists, and especially to buy (still) affordable art. Don't miss it!
