MADRAGOA is a contemporary art gallery founded in April 2016 by Matteo Consonni and Goncalo Jesus based in the historical neighbourhood of Madragoa, that gives the name to the space itself and acts as a statement: the project of the gallery looks at how to set a deep conversation with the city, not only by representing Portuguese artists, but also by enabling the local production of each show, also from artists from abroad, setting a dialogue within global artistic practices and local craftsmanship and ideas. The gallery creates experiences of research and production for its artists locally, supporting internal residencies, and promoting its program through the participation in international Art Fairs. Currently, the gallery represents artists from Portugal, Italy, Ecuador, Mexico, Poland, Spain and South Africa.
