Galerias Municipais/Galeria da Boavista
In a rapidly changing city like Lisbon, the Municipal Galleries seek to enhance the artistic environment and reflect contemporary culture. They consist of five spaces, networked and without a permanent collection: Pavilhão Branco, Boavista Gallery, Torreão Nascente da Cordoaria Nacional, Quadrum Gallery and the Avenida da Índia Gallery.
With a particular awareness of the historical and architectural heritage of each space, programming reflects a diversity of artistic creation and discourse, maintaining a transdisciplinary and transcultural focus. In this sense, the Municipal Galleries seek to promote different temporalities through exhibitions of varying lengths, as well as discursive programs, performances, residencies and publications.
