Sismógrafo's exhibitions program for 2016 starts with the return of Thierry Simões and the presentation of three new works: the boxes of etchings “maqueiros II-VI” and “maqueiros VI-IX” and the portable sculpture "Traveller C". The two volumes each include five proofs of state from a single plate, in copper, which has been scratched from 2001 – the same drawing inscribed was also used in the publication "Naevus" by Rui Baiao, published by Abysmo in 2013. Until February 6.
