This gallery is unique in being located in part of the complex of the Cordoaria Nacional (National Ropeworks), a national monument since 1779, with a length of almost 400 meters to allow for the size of the ropes produced for boats. Within this space retrospectives of Portuguese artists are held and there is also room for international and national partnerships with exhibitions aiming at the general public as, for example, Sebastião Salgado’s Genesis. In the intervals between these two models, it organises large-scale group exhibitions of collections or curatorial and artistic proposals.
Located in various parts of the city, our galleries are destined to promoting and disseminating the visual arts through a multidisciplinary approach, providing spaces for anthological exhibitions, exhibitions by young artists, and individual and collective site-specific projects. In keeping with the specific characteristics of each space, each gallery is in charge of managing its own strategy while remaining cognizant of the needs of the city’s cultural agents. The Galleries include Pavilhão Branco (White Pavilion), the historic Galeria Quadrum (Quadrum Gallery), Galeria Boavista (Boavista Gallery), Torreão Nascente da Cordoaria Nacional (Gallery at the National Ropework Factory) and Galeria Avenida da Índia (Avenida da Índia Gallery).
