Paula rego

Exhibition November 23, 2019 − April 19, 2020
"Paula rego"is an ambitious retrospective of the work of a Portuguese artist who brings politics to the forefront.

The work at this exhibition, covering the career of Rego from the 1950s to 2012, is devoted to the fascist regime of Antonio de Oliveira Salazar, the 1997 referendum on the legalization of abortion in Portugal, the invasion of Iraq by the United States and its allies in 2003, and from 2009 - crippling operations on the female genital organs - all this has a lot in common with modern feminist and political problems.

The main works of the exhibition are “Woman-Dog” (1952), “Snow White and her Stepmother” (1995), “First Mass in Brazil” (1993) and “Joseph's Dream” (1990).
