The second exhibition of the project The Museum Outside Itself, curated by Victor dos Reis.
It brings together works and pieces that represent or are functionally constituted as everyday objects, understood either as manufactured artifacts or as pieces collected from the natural environment - in both cases as a result of a cultural intention.
In an open, stimulating and contemporary way, the exhibition seeks to evoke one of the great categories of Western art - still life - and contribute to new readings and interpretations of this genre.
It consists of 82 works, plus four works that will be placed in schools in the municipality.
It's worth noting that this exhibition includes two guest works: one by Fábio Colaço (Untitled, Prozac, 2023, author's collection, a replica in gold metal of a Prozac pill), and another by Pedro Cabrita Reis (#Assemblage, 2003, author's collection).
"O Museu Fora de Si" aims to showcase works from the Municipal Art Collection and other artistic and scientific collections of the Municipality of Sintra, in different locations in the municipality and in unusual spaces, in an innovative concept focused on a policy of decentralization.
