Hoje Soube-me a Pouco

As part of the celebrations for the 50th anniversary of April 25th 1974 (the Carnation Revolution), Hoje soube-me a pouco [today didn’t feel enough] brings together a group of artists and works that marked the period after the founding moment of Portuguese democracy. It was a time of political and social change, but also a time of new attitudes and artistic expectations, which highlighted the commitment of artists to build strongly idiosyncratic and autonomous paths in relation to the collective utopias opened up by the revolution, and their works can be considered the richest cultural heritage of the very process of opening up Portuguese society.

In addition to including several of the main figures of Portuguese contemporary art from the 1970s and 80s, the exhibition also features artists from more recent generations whose works continue and expand legacies and creative trends that emerged after 1974. Most of the pieces included in the exhibition belong to the EDP Foundation Art Collection. Helena Almeida, Eduardo Batarda, Lourdes Castro, Rui Chafes, Armanda Duarte, Ana Jotta, Álvaro Lapa, Jorge Martins, António Palolo, Júlio Pomar, Paula Rego, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Julião Sarmento, Ângelo de Sousa, Susanne Themlitz and Ana Vieira are some of the artists featured in this exhibition.
