The exhibition "Contemporary Art in Project" opens a new phase of reflection and presentation to the public of the Portuguese government contemporary art collection which is stored by deposit at the City Museum, following an agreement signed in 2006 among the Municipality, the University of Aveiro and the Instituto das Artes | Ministério da Cultura [nowadays Secretaria de Estado da Cultura].
The collection, setting more than two hundred artworks, includes artistic creations from the abstraction, expressionism, realism, pop art, conceptual art and modernism and represents some of the 20th century most renowned Portuguese artists in visual arts [painting, photography, sculpture, and ceramics].
Promoting safeguard, study and diffusion of the Portuguese contemporary art, this project and agreement materialize the effective decentralization of cultural offer and aims to place Aveiro as a new centrality to arts and culture in Portugal.
The exhibition will be renewed throughout the year, displaying the different techniques, artists and languages that enhance the collection. Currently, is dedicated to painting, and presents authors such as Vieira da Silva, Armanda Passos, Guilherme Parente, Joaquim Bravo and Júlio Resende.
