Salgadeiras Gallery, opened in 2003, whose artistic director is Ana Matos, has been developing its program around the fusion of artistic expressions and genders, and a “positive contamination” with other fields of thought and sensibility, such as Literature and Poetry. Also has been establishing partnerships and creating bridges with other cultural institutions, in Portugal and abroad. Deeply aligned with the Salgadeiras Gallery’s premise “the art as a public good”, we created the Friends of Salgadeiras Group which has the goal of making access to the Art easier, offering several other advantages to Friends.
Also, we highlight the “Gallerist for a day” initiative where we invite people coming from other territories to define their own expositive speech, from our Archive, and artworks from artists we represent or collaborate with. With the goal to spread out the Gallery to other sensibilities and ways of facing Art, we invited Bárbara Coutinho (2008), Bárbara Guimarães (2008), Gonçalo M. Tavares (2011), José Pacheco Pereira (2017), Paulo David (2013), Rodrigo Leão (2009).
