Made in Portugal -
Como se pronuncia design em portugues ? The exhibition How do you pronounce design in Portuguese?  was created and it continues to fuel debate. The title also refers to the different ways of pronouncing the term design in the Portuguese language, and what this reveals about its origin, translation, history and meaning. Our aim is to understand how the geographical circumstances of Portugal, the historical heritage, culture, traditions, and collective consciousness influenced, and/or are reflected in, the thinking and work of each author. We have also sought to understand how the concepts of place, belonging, identity and memory have been crafted in terms of design, evaluating the possible existence of shared values and characteristics. In other words, what meaning and significance being Portuguese' have today in contemporary material culture? And to what extent does the development of domestic production pass through the work of our cultural matrix, without prejudice and with an awareness of who we are? It is these questions and issues that we also seek to open up for reflection. To do this, we looked at product design created and produced by Portuguese designers over the last sixty years, with greater emphasis on the period between 1980 and 2014.The diversity of proposals on display illustrates the impossibility of talking about a single national design. This was not our intention, nor did we consider it possible to do so in this day and age. We intended rather to seek out the most striking characteristics of Portuguese design.

From Matrix to Sleeping Beauty - From Matrix to Sleeping Beauty gives the opportunity to known the work of António Lagarto as a costume designer, presenting a selection of almost 300 pieces (clothing, hair props, jewellery and shoes) that have been worn by some of the most important actors, actresses and dancers to embody several characters of the national and international dramaturgical universe. To adequately visualize the aesthetic universe of António Lagarto and the way he works spacematterbody and light, he also signs the curatorship and exhibition design. 

Igreja da Concaiçao Velha - A deux pas des arcades de la Praça co Comércio, la sévère esthétique pommelaient rencontre l'exubérance de l'ornementation manuéline. La façade de l'église, minutieusement ouvragée, est l'un des seuls éléments de l'édifice d'origine (1520) à avoir survécu au séisme.
