Invitation: 25/11/2020, 15h00-19h00 | Opening with free admission of the exhibition "Embodying the void", by Cristina Ataíde

Cristina Ataíde's exhibition Embodying the void, curated by Sérgio Fazenda Rodrigues, is opening on 25 November, at 3 p.m. Both artist and curator will be present at the exhibition space from 3 to 7 p.m., with free admission to the museum during this period.

For the last three decades, Cristina Ataíde's work has been a steadfast exploration of the intersections between drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, video and site-specific intervention. Her production reveals a thirst for experimentation and a fascination with discovery anchored in the experiences of travelling, in searching for different thought systems and in researching the expressive possibilities of matter.

Embodying the void features a set of works that span various interlocking periods and media which, however, do not convey a chronological or retrospective gaze. Presented as a web of relations that intersects references which are transversal to the artist’s production, the exhibition enunciates the connection between individuals and the environment (reinforcing the dialogue between geography and culture), the nexus between travelling and knowledge (accentuating the link between discovery and identity) and the relationship between spirit and matter (speculating on the varied spectrum of states of existence).

Curated by Sérgio Fazenda Rodrigues.

A maximum of 40 visitors will be allowed into the exhibition at any given time. Museu Coleção Berardo reserves the right to modify these conditions in the event that the rules defined under the current State of Emergency are changed. The museum is taking all the necessary precautions in order to provide you a safe visit. We appreciate your cooperation.
