The exhibition 'What is Watt' held by António Barros, António Dantas, Carlos Valente, Celeste Cerqueira, Evangelina Sirgado de Sousa, Hugo Olim, Pedro Pestana and Silvestre Pestana, heads to the city of Porto, this being the first since it will be shown nationwide.

Therefore, organized by APCA - Agência de Promoção da Cultura Atlântica, in partnership with THE CAVE PHOTOGRAPHY, the exhibition will be shown at the Museum and Church of Misericórdia in Porto, with the opening scheduled for June 20th at 6 pm, with on display until July 21st.

Just as happened in its last visit, it will still be possible to watch the full documentary of the exhibition ‘What is Watt?’, directed by Hugo Olim.

Remember that the What is Watt? inaugurated the 19th edition of the MADEIRADiG festival - International Festival dedicated to electronic and experimental music, in December last year, at the John dos Passos Cultural Center, and continued to circulate at the beginning of this year, starting in the Municipality of São Vicente. It is currently at the Porto Santo Cultural and Congress Center, and can still be visited until this Friday, April 19th. Machico is, therefore, the third crossing point of the exhibition through the Region.

What is Watt? is an interdisciplinary artistic project that has in its genesis the promotion and exploration of different languages ​​of artistic expression in which electricity is the guiding thread, both in the execution and presentation of the works. Since 2001, this project has brought together a group of artists, mostly from the island of Madeira, with an artistic practice of a technological nature. The aim is to achieve two main vectors: on the one hand, to establish the creative heritage with a strong Madeiran flavor in the field of new media and experimental poetry, and on the other, to offer the public the opportunity to rediscover the project that has already celebrated more than 20 years, through the establishment of a new traveling exhibition.
