not so far ago, the building in which “arquipélago” came to light was an alcohol factory/potato distillery. many was told and discussed on the importance or not of this industry to the island economy. in the latter years it was an abandoned building, but since march 29th, 2015 is holds a contemporary art centre with the big mission to promote an exchange between culture/art, locals/visitors, island/world – in a place so many times forgotten by everyone. s.miguel, azores | may, 2015
