Songs of coming and going: musical images in Ibero-american painting

11th November to 28th January 2018

The exhibition is about the visual representation of music, exploring affinities and similarities between the discourses and images of Ibero-American music. It also explores, among other topics, the iconographic register of musical practices from the viewpoint of travellers throughout the 19th century; the presence of music in the studio environment; the representation of different musical styles in the so-called erudite and popular visual arts; and pictorial representations of nostalgia - in its association with music- through the eyes of different Latin American artists.

Curators: Sara Pereira and Vítor Serrão (Portugal)
