to Jun 30 | HISTORICAL EXHIBIT | 8998 Pomar | FREE-3€
April 15 - June 30€3
Museu do Ajube is one of the many, many places around town re-opening its doors to the public, just in time to celebrate the country’s Revolution of 1974 on April 25th. And here’s what they tell us about one of the many exhibits on display there in the coming weeks (and months, if all goes well):
“In addition to the show Amores na Clandestinidade, the Museu do Aljube – Liberdade e Resistência also evokes the 25th of April with the exhibition ‘8998 Pomar,’ which presents a selection of different nuclei of drawing, engraving, and painting, but also documents referring to works and episodes of censorship that refer for the period of closure, and of PIDE‘s persecution of the painter Júlio Pomar. Few still know that the painter was inmate no.8998 of the General Registry of Prisoners of PIDE and that he was arrested in Caxias, between March and August 1947, due to his participation in actions of resistance to the regime.”
The show is up until June 30th, with free entry until April 30th (from what we understand), but you can learn more about this and other goings-on at the former prison here.
