Break Down the Walls! Viva Design and the Arts
The exhibition, presented at the Sala Risco in Pateo da Galé, sparks a dialogue between two distinct focal points of the collections of MUDE – Museum of Design and Fashion and MACE – Museum of Contemporary Art of Elvas, highlighting the resemblances between fine and decorative arts but
escaping from a historical speech or a temporal dimension to develop a more transversal, inquiring and open reading.
A more formalistic perspective was chosen, offering themes and references common to the different arts and design, seeking to stimulate further readings to the visitors.
In a way the exhibition underlines some of the overlapping similarities or connections between the arts and design. In Lisbon, more than 125 works of almost 100 artists from different generations and careers are on display, Portuguese and from abroad.
