An old market became a space for cultureA 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).
