A Midsummer Night's Dream
The sardine depicts scenes from a classic Lisbon June evening.


The exhibition is curated and designed by Silvadesigners, a Lisbon-based design practice. It happens every year on the ocasion of the month-long June celebration of the city.

The sardines are printed in k-line and distributed in events and parties all across the city. Over the years, they have gradually worked themselves into Lisbon's urban landscape.
