Rua D. Manuel II (Jardins do Palácio de Cristal).
Galeria Municipal do Porto presents 10000 anos depois entre Vénus e Marte [10000 years later between Venus and Mars], an exhibition with works from the António Cachola Collection, a leading private collection of contemporary art deposited at the Museum of Contemporary Arts of Elvas (MACE) and the National Museum of Contemporary Art - Museu do Chiado. The collection includes painting, drawing, engraving, sculpture, installation and video with a total of 650 artworks by over a 100 Portuguese artists who began exhibiting their works publicly from the 1980s onwards. This collaboration with the Galeria Municipal do Porto marks the 10th anniversary of the collaboration between MACE / António Cachola Collection.
10000 anos depois entre Vénus e Marte exhibits for the first time several new acquisitions by the Collection. Borrowing its title from the 1978 album by José Cid, the exhibition speculates a dreamlike or hallucinatory territory analysing various realms of daily life by challenging seemingly stable forms of interpreting the real.
