"MU - Pedro Costa & Rui Chafes" Exhibition
This event has ended.
New and representative works by two leading Portuguese artists – film director Pedro Costa, known for works that straddle documentary and fiction, and Rui Chafes, a sculptor who stretches the possibilities of iron. Costa's films and Chafes' sculptures will turn the museum into a new space.
The current exhibition at the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art is a double-barrelled affair that combines the work of two of Portugal's most renowned artists; Pedro Costa and Rui Chafes. Chafes' works are three-dimensional metal constructions, exclusively in grey or black. Pedro Costa's work has, since his film 1989 film 'Blood', been something of a bulwark against the easy heroic narrative template of Hollywood films.
