In many cultures, the "other world" is where the dead live life beyond death. In turn, the work of José de Guimarães is deeply marked by the rituals of ancient cultures, tracing an arc of influences that goes from America to the Far East.
“A Museum from Another World” promises visitors a contact with ancient Chinese artworks and José de Guimarães’s reliquary boxes, as well as with the objects and images that the painter has collected. This exhibition seeks to open the door to a reflection on the museum as a form of otherness while inviting people to step into this “other world”.
