THE CRY OF IMAGINATION | PÓVOA DE VARZIM
CINE-TEATRO GARRET | PÓVOA DE VARZIM
24 ABR | 31 JUL 2021
Pad2 800x450 cover


This exhibition brings together a selection of prints, paintings, and drawings by Paula Rego drawn from the important group of works by the artist held in the Serralves Collection. Be it in extravagant compositions full of humour and irony, or in dense, carefully crafted pictorial narratives, Paula Rego explores topics such as power and obedience, physical and psychological pain, shame and pride, violence, loneliness, and sociability.

 

Throughout her oeuvre, namely in its figurative dimension, Paula Rego reaffirms her ever-renewed capacity to discuss the role of women in contemporary societies, to question everyday life, and, first and foremost, to unveil universes in which surprise and amazement are anchored in the most basic and fundamental yearnings of human beings.

 

‘Paula Rego: The Cry of Imagination’ is part of the Touring Exhibitions Programme of the Serralves Collection, which aims to make the Foundation's collection accessible to different audiences across the country.
