André Sousa and Mauro Cerqueira are the organizers of “Uma certa falta de coerência” (A Certain Lack of Coherence), an artist-run space that serves for the exhibition and discussion of art-related projects located at Rua dos Caldeireiros, no. 77, Porto. Before being occupied by André Sousa and Mauro Cerqueira this place was a restaurant, an Indian products store and even a ballpoint pen collector tried to establish a shop here. At the end of this very narrow street of Porto's historical centre, the sun barely touches the street's cobbles and humidity is an all-year problem. Therefore, the conditions for the preservation of Art, or works of art, could not be worse. However, André and Mauro deem that these adverse conditions are also the most stimulating for the existence of art.
Uma certa falta de coerência opened in 2008 and has since developed a continuous program of exhibitions. Andre Sousa and Mauro Cerqueira, both artists themselves, have initiated previous similar projects throughout the city of Porto since the 90s, a gesture, they deem continuously essential for the city itself as well as its cultural life.
