Post Millenial Tension: The first edition of the Portuguese Design Bienniale will take place from 19 September to 8 December 2019 between the cities of Porto and Matosinhos. Visitors are confronted with the tensions of the new millennium and are encouraged to reflect on the new millennium and the importance of design in an ever-changing world. In addition to exhibitions in both cities, the program also includes workshops, performances, installations and talks.
The professor and design critic José Bártolo could be won over as the curator. He is the lead curator of Casa do Design in Matosinhos. José Bártolo was commissioner of the Portuguese Pavilion at the XXI Triennale Milano (Italy, 2016) and curator of the exhibition "Duets" at the Beijing World Art Museum (China, 2014).
