"Days of War" Exhibition

Exhibition outside the Municipal Market of Matosinhos marks the first anniversary of the beginning of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia

Today, February 24th, marks one year since the beginning of the armed conflict between Ukraine and Russia. Aiming to give a look and a voice to all those who still fight emerging in the hope of a near future with peace, Matosinhos marks this day with the opening of the exhibition "The Days of War": a photographic record experienced in the first person by photojournalist Rui Caria, to whose images are added texts by Manuela Niza Ribeiro. A hard exhibition, of enormous realism and emotion, although with subtle nuances of hope and faith.

The opening of the exhibition is scheduled for tomorrow: at 11am, there will be a guided tour to the exhibition with the photojournalist Rui Caria and the author of the texts Manuela Niza Ribeiro. The Ukrainian lyric singer Serhii Alkin - a refugee in Portugal, welcomed by Matosinhos - will perform two themes of traditional Ukrainian music. In the afternoon, at 4:30 pm, an inauguration moment will take place with the presence of the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Ana Catarina Mendes.

"Days of War" can be seen until March 26th.

On the day that marks one year since Russia invaded Ukraine, the Municipality of Matosinhos will also light the sculpture "She Changes", also known as Anemone, and the Teatro Municipal de Matosinhos Constantino Nery with the colors blue and yellow, allusive to the flag of Ukraine.
