Tell me a Story – in Portugal

I’ve been a bit out of action for a while – I had a serious accident three weeks ago and I’m now in the recovery phase. But even back the I couldn’t completely ignore news of a new exhibition.

Tell me a Story, is being held at the Cru Galeria in Porto, Portugal between 4 May and 28 June 2019. That exhibition is based on the outcomes of Tell me a story, the installation in Second Life by Meilo Minotaur. The Curadoras Convidadas are Caterina Caneiro de Sousa, and Sameiro Oliveira Martins. There is full information on Flickr, including lists of the people involved in contributing artwork that featured in the exhibition, including my own video work, Innominate.

Unfortunately my accident put paid to several of my plans for travel, and so Porto is off the list. However, I’m hoping to still get to the International Visual Methods Conference in Bucharest during July, as the organisers approved my submission as an academic and I am invited in my own name, Tess Baxter. My submission for that conference included the video work I made at Tell me a Story Innominate. (Later note: sadly I didn’t make it to Bucharest. What a year!)

It was also approved for showing at last year’s Supernova Outdoor Digital Animation Festival in Denver. I’m really pleased with where my work Innominate has shown, and the success of the artwork on which it is based. It shows that things and people are not confined to Second Life as a place on the internet There is a vibrancy now that connects between and beyond places, meanings and art.

If you can make it to Porto, I hope you will, as it will be worth going. If you can’t, you can follow my links above to see what’s on offer, and watch my video just below.
