The “Experimental Laboratory of Intermediate Art” arises from the need to think and design a space for experimentation and advanced study, for an awareness of contemporary artistic creation, from the binomial sound art and visual arts. This Lab had its first experience in May 2018, in the organization of the tribute to the American composer John Cage, in an innovative moment of collaboration between composers, performers, performing musicians and visual artists.
It is intended, above all, to be a place of encounter and phenomenological sharing, between artists and academics, in the alternative offer of research and problematization put into practice on the re-leadings of the concept of total art and its activation in a common place, the Sala dos Arcos of Colégio dos Jesuítas.
It counts with the participation of musicians and teachers from the Conservatório Escola das Artes-Engº. Luiz Peter Clode and the Degree in Visual Arts from Arts and Humanities of Universidade da Madeira, betting on a dynamic of re-encounter with the past, in the origins of the then Academia de Música e Belas Artes da Madeira.
