Lisbon, Portugal, 1979


Carla Cabanas’ artistic work is permeated by her wonderings about how we come to build our own identity; how experiences, even the more prosaic ones, are inscribed in the fabric of our existence and how memory consolidates our personal narratives. The artist has exhibited widely in group and solo exhibitions throughout Portugal and internationally in Spain, Brazil, Argentina, SãoTomé e Príncipe and China. Her works are held in numerous public and private collections including those of the PS Collection (Stanislas y Leticia Poniatowski), Novo Banco Photo, Lisbon, P.L.M.J. Collection, Lisbon, National Gallery of Art, Washington, EUA, Fernando Ribeiro Collection, Abrantes, José Carlos Santana Pinto, Lisbon, Marín Gaspar Collection, Alvito, Banque Privée Edmond de Rothschild Europe Collection, Lisbon, Fundação Luso-Americana para o Desenvolvimento, Lisbon, and Coleção KELLS, Santander.
