The contemporary art gallery THIS NOT A WHITE CUBE expands its international presence with the opening of a new space in Lisbon, in Chiado.
To mark the occasion, between 27 May and 17 July, the gallery will simultaneously present in its two branches, in Lisbon and in Luanda, a solo exhibition by the Santomense artist René Tavares.

In Memory We Trust promotes a reflection around the notions of memory, history, tradition, heritage and miscegenation. The show includes more than 30 works produced between 2012 and 2021, many of which have never been shown before. It displays two distinct sections – divided between Lisbon and Luanda – with a large variety of media ranging from painting to drawing, including photography and installation.

At the Angolan centre, the artist explores the themes of migration and heritage that have been, over the years, a consistent motor of innovation and creativity in his artistic production. At the Portuguese centre he gives greater expression to themes such as memory and cultural heritage.
