Atelier-Museu Júlio Pomar
Júlio Pomar

The exhibition reflects on how the body, eroticism and sexuality have crossed the artist's path for more than 70 years, but with a special focus on the decades of 1960 and 1970, at which time the work of Júlio Pomar assumed these aspects more explicitly.

In this exhibition, the body is like a constant, conducting element that leads the spectator and the painter through the works of different periods, interconnecting them. It is important to perceive that the body forms that appear in these paintings, assemblages, sculptures, drawings and graphic works - engravings, posters, serigraphs and illustrations for books - sometimes parts of bodies that seem to escape from the representation plane, have the function of organizing and relating different ways of seeing and thinking reality and its narratives, more and less explicit, more and less realistic, more and less mythical.

Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 1pm / 2pm to 6pm
