The exhibition of FLAD’s art collection was inaugurated this Wednesday at the Central Tejo of the MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology. Feast. Fury. Femina. – Works from FLAD’s Collection brings together 228 works of art by over 61 artists, in a generational dialogue, between drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture.

It is an unprecedented exhibition, the largest ever held from the collection of the Foundation, and is constituted almost exclusively by works of Portuguese artists. The curators, António Pinto Ribeiro and Sandra Vieira Jürgens wanted to put the works and artists in dialogue, instead of choosing a portrait of a generation, decade, or style. To this end, they shaped a part of MAAT’s Central Tejo to create this dialogue, creating a vibrant exhibition that captivates the visitor.

“The idea was to put artists in dialogue, artists of different generations, from the 60’s who may be in dialogue with artists from 2000 or 2010. That was the perspective, not so much to bring together the generation of the 80s, 90s.” – Sandra Vieira Jürgens, in Antena 1.

The curators wanted to portray an extended period of the history of contemporary Portuguese art, from the 1960s to the 21st century.

“It is an important part of a certain narrative eventually even for the majority of the history of art in Portugal from the 60s to 2020.” – António Pinto Ribeiro, in Antena 1.

António Pinto Ribeiro also announced that FLAD has restarted art purchases to enrich its collection, with a novelty so far, which is the bet on foreign artists. The first of these purchases were made to an artist from Beirut.

The exhibition can be seen from this Wednesday, September 23rd, in the Central Tejo of the MAAT, and will be on display until January 25th, 2021.
