Two visions of exile.

Exiled to Rio de Janeiro between 1940 and 1947, the painting couple made up of Arpad Szenes and Vieira da Silva did not experience their carioca stay in quite the same way. While Arpad Szenes quickly found his way and developed more intimate and familiar subjects, Vieira da Silva's painting reflected her worries: the pain caused by the war in Europe, the absurdity of the human condition, homesickness...
Their stay was to have a lasting impact on their work.

The exhibition has been organised as part of Lisboa 2017, Iberian-American Capital of Culture.
