The “Museu Feio” is an anonymous collective of Portuguese artists founded during the mandatory confinement imposed by the Government, as a consequence or way of combating the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
With the sudden and forced quarantine and the respective state of emergency, we had a crucial moment of analysis, discussion and political reflection regarding the support of Culture in the Country.
Facing a reality where only the exit of the respective homes was authorized, for people who needed to acquire essential goods such as: food, hygiene and health products, practicing physical exercise; we were absorbed by a question: Isn't culture also an essential good that we were deprived of?
“Museu Feio” was a rebellious and spontaneous gesture that brought, quickly and in strategic places, the most respected masters of classical painting from various times and countries to the streets of Lisbon.
At a time when all citizens were closed at home, deprived of culture ... an open-air museum appeared. Portraits, self-portraits, landscapes and still lifes, famous or unknown are now spread across the country and available to all citizens... and now at THE HOOD.
