Estufa Fria

How to get there?

14 — 17 Sep - 2017

This year the Lisboa Soa is taking place over three days at the Estufa Fria de Lisboa. Sound art can be defined as a series of practices that use sound and hearing as a theme or subject matter. In recent years it has become an innovative and growing field within the world of contemporary art.
