In "Simplesmente Évora," Telmo Rocha presents the Alentejo town in 20 black and white photographs, it explores three themes: heritage, people and activities.

Falar de AO CABO supón replantexar dende o principio os conceptos visuais tópicos asociados á beleza amplamente coñecida dunha zona que ten un valor estético indiscutible, que se ten mantido ó longo dos séculos da mesma forma enxebre e senlleira.

A Costa da Morte, é unha franxa tradicionalmente comprendida entre os municipios de Carnota e Malpica, cun enclave mítico que os romanos consideraban o fin do mundo, Fisterra, que enche de contido épico a beleza e singularidade do lugar.

Oralities Project revisits Giacometti

This exhibition presents a sample of Michel Giacometti's photographic collection, a selection of eighty images which reveals much of the theoretical thinking of the ethnologist as well as his way of seeing and interpreting reality.

The exhibition also features a display of various traditional musical instruments of Alentejo and exemplars of traditional puppets “Bonecos de Santo Aleixo”, among other items, which were provided by several organizations that contributed to the enrichment of exhibition, because these are objects that were documented by Michel Giacometti in its research work in Alentejo.

Michel Giacometti

(Corsica 1929 - Portugal 1990)

His marriage to a Portuguese and his interest in our culture is sparked by the reading of the posthumous work of Kurt Schindler, Folk Music and Poetry of Spain and Portugal, brings him to Portugal in 1959, where he decides to develop a systematic collection of Traditional Portuguese Music. His research has a strong fieldwork component, using participant observation as a process for describing knowledge, behaviours and cultural artefacts related to communities, in order to understand the environment in which traditional music was produced. His unique and vast work in our country granted him international recognition from his peers.
