Museu Calouste Gulbenkian - José de Almada Negreiros: uma maneira de ser moderno (a way of being modern)

This exhibition is a comprehensive retrospective on the work of an artist who propelled the avant-garde in the 1910s and whose career spanned the 20th century.

"To be modern is just like being elegant: it is not a way of dressing, but a way of being. To be modern is not to use the modern calligraphy, but to be the genuine discoverer of the new." José de Almada Negreiros, conference O Desenho [Drawing], Madrid, 1927
