Starting this Friday, July 27th, the Museu da Cidade hosts the exhibition “Errata – A Feminist Review of the History of Portuguese Graphic Design”. Curated by Isabel Duarte and Olinda Martins, the exhibition can be visited in the Foyer of the Auditorium of the Almeida Garrett Municipal Library until October.
This exhibition seeks to review the role of women in the history of design. A research project in development that aims to respond to this “forgetfulness” through publications, podcasts, and public presentations.
The inaugural exhibition presents the work of 20th-century women designers who are absent in the history of Portuguese design and, in doing so, will cast a critical eye on the mechanisms still present that allow and propagate these omissions.
From the collection, documentation and presentation of the work of graphic designers, the exhibition shows women who were left out of the history of design. An “errata” to correct an omission present in the history of Design, patent until October 24 at the Almeida Garrett Municipal Library. Access is free.
