A modern building in the old market area, built for the European Capital of Culture in 2012. There are several rooms displaying temporary and permanent exhibitions. The permanent exhibition is a collection belonging to José de Guimarães, a Portuguese plastic artist of Contemporary Art.
One of the temporary exhibitions I visited is Rituals with masks: a face-to-face. An exposition of masks from the African Art collection of José de Guimarães and also from the Winter cycles of Trás-os-Montes, on display till 05th April 2015.
There is also a room for events, the Blackbox, where I had the chance to assist to a dance performance included in the GuiDance (International Contemporary Dance Festival).
