Researcher of CIAC among great names of the contemporary Portuguese sculpture
The Parque de Escultura Contemporânea de Almourol (Almourol Contemporary Sculpture Park), in the riverside park of Vila Nova da Barquinha, will be inaugurated on the 6th of July, by 7 pm. This park is an open-air museology project, displaying works from eleven names of contemporary Portuguese sculpture. Among them is the name of the plastic artist and researcher of CIAC, Xana. This park exhibits works purposely produced for this location, from authors whose work has been developed since the 1960’s until today, namely, Alberto Carneiro, Ângela Ferreira, Fernanda Fragateiro, Pedro Cabrita Reis, among others. The works are located on the seven acres of the Barquinha Park and in this project are also included an exhibit gallery, a shop, artistic ateliers and temporary housing for creators, all of this complementing the ludic spaces for children and riverside paths, everything framed by the natural riverbanks of the Tagus river. Not to be missed!
