Run by Margarida Mendes, The Barber Shop is a project space that gives carte blanche to selected guests to propose an ephemeral, one-night-only project.

The Barber Shop aims to create a debate between artistic praxis and research upon multiple contexts, proposing a renewed set of discussions with the participation of agents from diverse geography and backgrounds. The projects stimulate brief encounters intended to provoke an increasing dialogue as well as the establishment of a local community of shared interests.

In 2011, artists Mariana Silva and Pedro Neves Marques participated as curatorial fellows.
