If you’ve already seen the Paula Rego collection at the Casa das Histórias, you’ll want to go back. A new exhibition, Innervisions, presents the collection in a whole new strategy, with works by contemporary artist Pedro Calaprez. The exhibition continues through 17 February 2013.
This unique exhibition, curated by Catarina Alfaro, is based on the non-illustrative dialogue between one of the Rego’s most emblematic pieces, Angel (1998), and a new series of works by Calapez. These works were created specifically for this exhibition as an engagement/installation.
Works from the Paula Rego Collection
The pieces chosen from the collection, ranging from abstract to figurative, share common features, themes and narratives. They are aligned in a dreamlike and fantastic aesthetic, exploring the themes of love, seduction, fear, religion, power and subjugation, transgression and terror.
