The starting point for Yto Barrada’s project is the unique and tragic figure of Thérèse Rivière. In the 1930s, the French ethnologist traveled to Algeria, to the Aurès mountains, to study the Berber Chaouis people.
From March until June, art and music will come together in the Modern Collection.
Between March and June, on the first Sunday of the month, visitors will be able to see the most comprehensive collection of Portuguese modern art, accompanied by a diverse repertoire. The upcoming concerts will be held in the main exhibition hall of the Modern Collection, allowing visitors to enjoy a true musical journey throughout all of the galleries. The term ‘promenade’ (from the French se promener, meaning to go for a walk) was first used in the 19th century, in London, to refer to the concerts carried out in public gardens, where visitors could enjoy live music as they walked about. In 2016, the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum adopted this concept, moving the habitual Sunday concerts, previously carried out in the entrance hall of the Museum and Library, to the galleries, allowing for the public to enjoy live music during their visit.
This initiative is the result of a collaboration between the Museum and the Music Department of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
