Fine Arts of the Academy. TODAY

Free admission

Fine Arts of the Academy. TODAY

Temporary exhibition that took place between March 20 and April 28 2019.

The exhibition brought together 27 works by 27 contemporary academicians at the height of their creativity. Drawing, painting, sculpture and photography express the vitality of the Academy of Fine Arts (ANBA), which renowned Portuguese artists have contributed to with their sculptures and paintings to enhance a collection dating from the 19th century. 

Founded in Lisbon in 1836, the Academy aims, by Decree, “To aid in the general civilisation of the Portuguese people, cultivating in all classes a taste for beauty and to develop the gifts of those who apply themselves to such interesting studies.”

In the year we celebrated the bicentenary of the birth of Queen Maria II, the founder of this public utility institution, as well as Banco de Portugal, and dedicated Fine arts of the Academy. Today to her memory.

 

This exhibition was part of a rehabilitation programme of the prestige of the Academy that began in 2016, when the Academy of Fine Arts celebrated 180 years.

The exhibition had the unconditional collaboration of 27 renowned Academicians who have graced Museums, buildings and public spaces with their works of art, in cities both in Portugal and abroad. They prove how alive the Academy is: it is symbolic, collective, and embracing modernity.
