Lia Carreira is a Lisbon-based Brazilian curator and researcher with a focus on experimental curating and exhibition spaces, particularly in Media Arts. Her projects address the use of new technologies in and for the exhibition space and her research expands on the histories of exhibitions and their spatialities. She runs and curates the Palácio das Belas Artes Lisboa in Lisbon and is the co-founder of the independent research project AI, Architecture and Exhibitions (AAE). She is currently finishing her PhD in Art at the Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton (UK), on the relationship between exhibition spaces and experimental laboratories.
Lia Carreira and Bernhard Garnicnig present the Palácio das Belas Artes Lisboa in Portugal as a memorial to the promises and potential pitfalls of the concept of multidirectional memory.
