'Helena Almeida' is the most comprehensive exhibition to date of the work of renowned Portuguese artist Helena Almeida (Lisbon, 1934), surveying her work in painting, photography, video and drawing over nearly five decades. The exhibition will highlight the importance of the body - registering, occupying and defining space - and its performative encounter with the world throughout Almeida's work from mid-1960s until today. Along with the artist's 'inhabited' paintings and the photographic series for which she is best known, the exhibition will also feature rarely exhibited work from throughout her artistic career. Through her early abstract painting, Almeida introduces the central concern that define her artistic practice in a variety of media, in particular an interest in breaking the confines of pictorial and narratie space, which has always played a fundamental role in her work. As Almeida states, "my painting is my body, my work is my body'.
