Many people have helped to make this exhibition possible. I would like to express my sincerest thanks to all those who have loaned works and can now share this opportunity with us to see them publicly exhibited. The team at Museu do Chiado - National Museum of Contemporary Art has, as always, performed with incomparable professionalism. Ana Sofia Nunes and Emilia Tavares were responsible for the production and Nuno Ferreira de Carvalho for media and publishing. All willingly contributed with ideas that have enriched the exhibition. Maria de Aires Silveira was responsible for registry and conservation, Alberto Julio Silva designed the educational programme. and Benvinda Silva and Angelina Pessoa handled all the secretarial work. Thomas Mulcaire in Cape Town gave valuable support during the preparation phase.
Andrew Renton, a long-time authority on the artist's work, has written a splendid essay for the catalogue that discovers subtle and determinant significations in Angela Ferreira's work.
I would like lo express my deepest gratitude to the museum’s institutional backers, the Fundação Banco Comercial Português, whose financial support allowed the exhibition to be held.
My greatest thanks go to Ângela Ferreira, for making it possible to discover and share a truly unique body of work.
Director, Museu do Chiado - Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporânea
