Part of the Gulbenkian Itinerante project, the exhibition Risco A-Risco explores aspects common to both the Gulbenkian Collection and the Sines area of the Alentejo region, based on the work Exemplar da Constancia dos Matyres em a Vida do Glorioso S. Tórpes (Exemplar of the Constancy of Martyrs in the Life of the Glorious St Torpes), from 1746. This book, one of the most important pieces of cultural heritage relating to this area, includes one of the first prints of an archaeological object ever published in Portugal – a schist plaque from the Final Neolithic / Chalcolithic period.


Carlos Botelho, 'Tejo e a ponte', 1968. Inv. 85P378


Curated by Ricardo Estevam Pereira, the exhibition analyses the written word and the way that it is explored by the visual arts in the works shown, in which it often becomes the principal element of the visual language. Also part of the exhibition is the woodcut print from 1746, which allows us appreciate the extent to which its components are still present in contemporary works of art.


António Areal, 'Homenagem dum Leonardo ao corpo da Leonor', 1970. Inv. DP1503
Robert Delaunay, Untitled, undated. Inv. GE37


The exhibition includes more than 30 works from the CAM Collection – among them prints, paintings, sculptures, photographs and drawings – which have a direct or indirect relationship with this theme. Among the artists represented are names such as Ana Hatherly, António Areal, Robert Delaunay, Alberto Giacometti, José Pedro Croft, Fernanda Fragateiro, Salette Tavares, Carlos Botelho, António Carneiro and Maluda, among others.

Opening on 2 April, the exhibition can be seen at the Centro de Arte de Sines until 18 June.
