performance by Susana Mendes Silva, with the collaboration of Miguel Pereira
18th May, Saturday, 9.30 p.m.
Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporânea - Museu do Chiado
Event integrated in the exhibition Hetero QB and in the International Museum Day.
In "The Director", Susana Mendes Silva and Miguel Pereira celebrate with the audience the International Museum Day by evocating a very special woman: Maria José de Mendonça. The performance was part of the paralel events of the exhibition "Hetero QB" and proposed an historical insight through the absence of a gender discourse in Portuguese Museology.
After the performance, the artist made a Wikipedia entry for the museum director (soon in an English version):
