Paula Rego at MACNA from July 9 to October 18

De 9 de julho a 18 de outubro no Museu de Arte Contemporânea Nadir Afonso (MACNA), em Chaves.

The exhibition “O Grito da Imaginação” (The Cry of Imagination), brings together works by the painter from the Serralves Collection, carried out between 1975 and 2004 and representing various phases of production of this artist.

Crossing personal memories and references from the pictorial and literary tradition, Paula Rego’s work is characterized by an obsessive approach to the darker, deeper and more ambiguous aspects of human relations. In compositions full of humour and irony or in dense and carefully crafted pictorial narratives, Rego explores themes such as power and obedience, physical and psychological pain, shame and pride, violence, loneliness and sociability.

From July 9 to October 18 at Nadir Afonso Museum of Contemporary Art (Portuguese MACNA), in Chaves.
