The Underdogs Gallery, in Lisbon, is currently presenting its first collective exhibition of the year named “I don’t want to be, I am” curated by the artistic project Ink and Movement, an agency that has been promoting contemporary artists for more than 10 years. Since April’s first, nine artists (Spanish and Argentines), are sharing one roof to reveal their unique individual work, and even though they have different backgrounds, their creative vision comes together to share a diverse range of artistic pieces.

In the Underdogs main space Elian Chali, Franco Fasoli, Martí Sawe, Misterpiro, Nano4814, Okuda San Miguel, Sabek, Sixe Paredes and Spok Brillor have been showcasing a selection of creative artifacts with the intention and dream of sharing their work internationally.

“I don’t want to be, I am”, explores the concept of identity in the context of the international art world, born from the need to approach new codes, new spaces and new forms of interaction within the universe of contemporary creation, without hesitation.

Simultaneously, at Capsula, French artist Julien Raffin, makes a return after his 2017 exhibition to present “La Folie des Grandeurs”, a series of works the artist has been developing that expresses a multitude of subjects such as the frenetic development of humanity, industrial progress, and the consequent impact on the planet's natural ecosystems. Julien’s work emphasizes the contrast between the idealizations of those who lived before us and the realities created by the consequences of their actions, as well as ours.

Both the exhibitions, collective and individual, are open to multiple interpretations and for all audiences until May 21, 2022.

Underdogs is a cultural platform based in Lisbon, Portugal, that encompasses a gallery with two exhibition areas, a public art programme, the production of artist editions, and the development of commissioned art projects. Established in 2010 and consolidated in its present form in 2013, Underdogs works with a diversified roster of Portuguese and international artists connected with the urban-inspired contemporary art universe, fostering the development of close relationships between creators, the public, and the city to promote art as an everyday experience.
