Lars is an artist-run curatorial project, started in 2021 by Joana Oliveira (PT) and Thyra Dragseth (NO). Our work will be based in various locations in and around Lisbon. 


The project aims to create new spaces for showing art as well as a meeting place

for critical thinking and theory, critique sessions, and togetherness. By being a

non-profit artist-run initiative it strives to be a space untangled from the commercial art world. Lars is a space where emerging artists get an opportunity to show their projects in a professional environment, as well as a space where established artists can work within the

freedom that comes from non-profit milieus.


Lars is supported by the Gulbenkian Foundation and is currently a pilot project, concentrated on 2022. Our ideal is to continue working with Lars to be a new initiative taker in the Portuguese art scene, as well as to create a network between Scandinavia and Portugal.
