SYNESTHESIA

P.I.: Margarida Madureira

Description

Continuing the previous work of the Interarts project, SYNESTHESIA aims to study the multiple relations between particular art forms (mainly painting and literature), as well as to reflect on art and aesthetics in general. Currently the Project’s research focuses mainly on the work of contemporary Portuguese painters who are not only linked with literature, but also produced work as writers and art theorists, namely Júlio Pomar and Mário Dionísio.
