A Dama Pé de Cabra - Paula Rego e Adriana Molder/

7 July - 28 October

This is the first international exhibition of new work by Paula Rego and Adriana Molder.

Directly inspired by Alexandre Herculano's tale A Dama Pé-de-Cabra (The Goat-Footed Lady), the two artists worked at the same time on two independent sets of large-scale work, to be shown at the Casa das Histórias Paula Rego.

Paula Rego (b. 1935) reveals brilliant imagery and narratives inspired by the story, using totally free composition and lines.

Adriana Molder (b. 1975) is a Portuguese artist who lives in Berlin, and defined the underlying concept of this project and the challenge given to Paula Rego. She has developed a figurative structure in her work, with recognizable international success. In the drawings displayed here, she builds powerful images showing psychological and narrative aspects of the characters chosen.
