OPEN STUDIO @ JOÃO DIAS STUDIO
12.3.2020. Thursday, 20h/23h
[Zona Industrial de Abraveses, nº4. 3500 – Viseu | PT]

Two years of studio [this current Studio] are two years of finalized artworks, models, artifacts and traces/vestiges. Some of those elements speak for themselves; others are worth for their process; others, still, for the underlying intention; at least in the eyes of who creates and makes them!
For all that time and for the path that has been walked, the moment has come to open the doors wide. The Studio is, after all, the home of the artist and of those who visit him…
That being so we would like to invite you to spend the ending hours of March 12th 2020 (20h – 23h), to see, hear and – most of all – share the nooks and corners of this Home/Studio.


PROSPECTIVE MODULAR ARCHEOLOGY
8.2.2020 – 11.4.2020. Tuesday – Saturday, 15h/20h
Galeria Salgadeiras, Lisbon, PT

In this first solo exhibition in Galeria das Salgadeiras, João Dias presents his most recent work where he explores the idea of a sculpture merging with the surface of the wall and other formal essays, in a game of visual contrasts and dynamics.

Artwork: “Shadow artifacts”. João Dias. 2019. Metal, polystyrene, mineral putty, binder and automotive enamel varnish. 174 x 140 x 18 cm (21 elements).
