The Carlos Machado Museum opens on July 25th the exhibition «Life, Ways of Using _ Essay on donations from the last 10 years» by Luísa Cardoso.
Donations made to the Carlos Machado Museum in the last 10 years were the theme of the exhibition, which also aims to honor donors, praising the act of giving in a society based on commercial exchange, profit and consumption.
The exhibition will be on held at the Sacred Art Center, in the former Igreja do Colégio and can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday between 10 am and 5:30 pm.
According to the curator, "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 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”.
New exhibition consists of dozens of objects donated over the last decade.
