Life, Ways of Using


Sacred Art Center
25.07 - 31.01

Donations made to the Carlos Machado Museum over the last 10 years were the motto for the theme of this exhibition, which also aims to honor donors, praising the act of giving in a society based on commercial exchange, profit and consumption.

"The objects donated to the museum in the last 10 years gravitate around the home. They are, for the most part, not extraordinary objects, but everyday objects that are open to multiple readings. On the one hand, they tell a story of private life; on the other hand, they contain more or less revealed memories and affective charges. It is from these two dimensions that their value derives and they are the ones that incite the gesture of donation, in order to rescue these objects from loss and oblivion”.
