In the museum of the Cupertino de Miranda it is still possible to visit the exhibition ‘Collect the Restlessness’, of the surrealist nucleus of the collection of Miguel Mesquita.
This exhibition is based on a nucleus of more than 300 documents collected over more than ten years by the collector Miguel Mesquita, which the Foundation has acquired, many with personalized bookbinding, and which make up a total of 46 titles, dating from 1917 to the 70s, illustrating “the richness of the International Surrealist Movement.”
Countries such as France, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, United States of America, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Czech Republic, England, Switzerland and Portugal are represented in this nucleus, enabling a “single view” of what was done in each country at that time.
‘Collecting the Restlessness’ will be open to the public until February 23, 2019.
