Book Visit

‘Gris, Vide, Cris’: three words taken from a poem by Alberto Giacometti bring together in this exhibition two artists separated in space, in time and in the forms of their sculptures. This factor of separation encourages us to question the meaning of the act of uniting two artists who never met – Rui Chafes was born in 1966, the year of Giacometti’s death, and there are no biographical or historical details to connect them in a way that creates a dialogue. This exhibition was thus devised as an encounter. In this guided tour, you can meet these two artists separated in space.

All tours must be booked at least two weeks in advance.


Guided by Carlos Carrilho, Raquel Feliciano, Susana Anágua
