Main building – Temporary exhibitions gallery Av. de Berna, 45A, Lisbon

Beyond the Mirror, a title that deliberately alludes to the world of Alice Liddell, the heroine created by Lewis Carroll (1832-1898), is a thematic exhibition, which takes the mirror as its main focus. The intention is to show the polysemic presence of this object in the iconography of European art, particularly within painting, but also in works in other mediums, such as sculpture, books, photography and film.

Curator: Maria Rosa Figueiredo in collaboration with Leonor Nazaré
