Popular Art and Portuguese Identity. Anatomy of an Exhibition

This year, the University of British Columbia’s Museum of Anthropology will open a major exhibition of Portuguese popular art. In this talk the Museum’s Director, Anthony Shelton,  will discuss the complex mixture of ideologies which underlie the representation of popular art during the dictatorship (Estado Novo), its re-accommodation after the establishment of democracy in 1974, and the challenges of curating an exhibition that deals with historical imaginations.
