The President and the Administration Board of Fundação de Arte Moderna e Contemporânea - Coleção Berardo, the Direction of Museu Coleção Berardo and the Fosun Foundation invite you to the opening of “Saudade, China & Portugal – Contemporary Art”, on the November 16th, Friday, at 7 p.m. - Free Admission.
The exhibition "Saudade", curated by Yuko Hasegawa, presented at Museu Coleção Berardo, and co-produced with the Fosun Foundation, gathers 16 artists from China and Portugal. The common denominator to these works is a reflection on the concepts of diversity, festivity, and ambiguity, as well as their intimate connection with the feeling of saudade—title to the exhibition, meaning the suffering caused by distance or the absence of something or someone.
By presenting works from the cultural heritages of both countries as a whole, this exhibition will surely invigorate the Sino-Portuguese relationship—as well as the understanding of who we are, where we are, and where we are going to.
