press-release – PT |

Following its last exhibition in 2008 in Galeria Cristina Guerra (Lisbon), entitled Lessons in Music, João Paulo Feliciano (JPF) continues to explore the metaphor of music as a learning process of developing an artistic language.

As in previous exposure, JPF cross references to their own history and experience with musical and artistic ideas and quotations more or less ironic the idea of culture as an unbroken chain of transmission of knowledge.

However, this “Music Lessons Vol. II” , the artist goes beyond a certain formality and restraint purposely made in the previous exhibition, showing works where the impulsive gesture, the disruption, the breaking of rules, the failure, the ineptitude, the abandonment , limitations, and even a certain brutality takes an expressive and creative urgency.

In the Music Lessons Vol. II, João Paulo Feliciano presents us videos, photographs, and sculptures / objects in a variety of records that is characteristic of his work.
