“Modern Women” by Almada Negreiros are about to say goodbye to Tavira

In three months, the exhibition has already had 20 visitors

A exhibition “Modern Women in the work of José de Almada Negreiros” closes this Sunday, October 14, at the Municipal Museum of Tavira – Palácio da Galeria. 

On the last day of the exhibition, the visit is free between 9:15 am and 16:30 pm. Since its opening, on the 7th of July, Palácio da Galeria has registered more than 20 thousand visitors.

This exhibition, which resulted from the collaboration between the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the Municipality of Tavira, was curated by the art historian Mariana Pinto dos Santos and focuses on female representation in the work of the modernist José Almada Negreiros.

Dozens of works are presented, some known and reproduced in Portuguese art histories, such as “As banhistas” (1925), the group self-portrait of Brasileira do Chiado (1925) or the double portrait of Almada with Sara Afonso (1934- 36).

The exhibition is also accompanied by excerpts from his literary work and contributions to the press at the time.
