to Aug 22 | GROUP ART EXHIBIT | Europa Oxalá | 5€

April 7 @ 10:00 - August 22 @ 18:00


Europa Oxalá at the Gulbenkian presents work by 21 artists with backgrounds in former colonies in Africa such as Angola, Congo, Benin, Guinea, Algeria, and Madagascar.
The organizers add:
“Born and raised in a post-colonial context, these are artists who became essential in European contemporary art, proposing a reflection on their inheritance, their memory, and their identity… From their ancestors, they have inherited memories that come to them diffusely from family and friends and which are not just voices, sounds, and gestures, but also images and memories of their cultures of origin, starting points for vital investigative work in historical, familial, and institutional archives. Their artistic productions feed into an original reflection on racism, the decolonization of the arts, the status of women in contemporary society, and even the deconstruction of colonial thought.”

Wed- Tue, 10h–18h.
Closed on Tuesdays.

Show up until Aug. 22.

TICKETS: 5€ (at the door or here).
