As of today, we are counting down to the opening of the exhibition Feast.Fury.Femina. – Works from FLAD’s Collection.

FLAD’s contemporary art collection, launched in 1986, consists mostly of works by Portuguese artists and brings together a set of works representative of the Portuguese artistic scene of the 80s, 90s, and beginning of the 21st century, with new acquisitions between the end of 2019 and the year 2020. Composed mostly by drawing, it also integrates painting, photography, and sculpture, and recently added more works by women, as well as works by artists representing the multicultural composition of the country. With the exhibition Feast. Fury. Femina.. – Works from FLAD’s Collection, in a co-production with the EDP Foundation/MAAT, we intend to bring to the general public a significant part of this collection.

Three axes emerge from the Collection and give rise to this exhibition – Feast. Fury. Femina. – dialogue and generate idearies: they celebrate the collection, evoke the dimension of performativity inherent to contemporary artistic practices, and highlight the feminine dimension, requiring a renewed look at Art History that has so neglected female artists.

Take the opportunity to get to know the work of 61 artists of various generations, between September 22, 2020, and January 25, 2021, at MAAT – Museum of Art, Technology and Architecture.

See you soon!
