CSL - Centro Cultural associates with Purga for a contamination in lightning mode, in an exercise of creative freedom and necessarily, as is our prerogative, in a perspective of intersection and co-creation. It is not a collective of visual artists, nor a performance festival, or even a series of concerts. It is overlapping lines of all these artistic influences in an intrinsic dialogue with the architecture and the spirit of Carpintarias.
Estudo do Meio is a showcase of talents of a new generation, some already known, and others not so well known, that now have the possibility to be noticed on a new scale.


What do the compass, the mammalian reproductive system, and the properties of minerals have in common? In the first experience of interdisciplinarity that the school offers us, a horizontal place to exist. We learn that things have their workings interconnected, independent in their interdependence, and that we are a horizontal part of things.
We propose to this artistic environment that we inhabit a meeting at the center, in that origin of things condensed and contaminated to each other, in a two-day program in which we are free to cross our practices with those of our colleagues, seeking the utopian harmony of a school discipline.

A Purga, Rudi Brito and Isabel Cordovil's independent curatorial project, has been active in organizing exhibitions, starting in vacant apartments in Vila Luz and now expanding to other spaces and other challenges."
