Guided visit to the exhibition of Sarah Affonso. The days of the little things.
At MNAC, the exhibition Sarah Affonso. The Days of Little Things, curated by Maria de Aires Silveira and Emília Ferreira, offer an approach to her whole work. By proposing a biographical and creative journey by Sarah Affonso, we will approach her artistic formation, and discover a multifaceted artist, with a work that goes from a multiplicity of drawing registers to painting, through embroidery. The artist is also manifested in a very particular way in her relationship with the landscape, intervening and creating landscape: the surroundings of the family house in Bicesse (Cascais, Portugal).
