(YOU) Can Speak in the Plura Form

João Penalva
Culturgest Foundation Caixa Geral de Depósitos, Lisbon
3 – 17 March, 2019

In October 2018, Caixa Geral de Depósitos employees joined curator Filipa Oliveira’s project of putting together an exhibition of works of the CGD Collection, among them João Penalva's work. The purpose was to go through the method of curating an exhibition and to show how works of art are understood, chosen and installed. It is now time for the 21 amateur curators to show the results of their learning and their findings.

Between November 2018 and February 2019, this Collective of Curators explored the behind the scenes of Culturgest exhibitions, examined many works of art and attended many tutoring sessions on the subjects of curatorship, museology, museography and Art History. Further to curator Filipa Oliveira’s dedicated guidance, the group was also backed CGD's Art Collection curators and Culturgest exhibition team.
