MODERN ART CENTER
A collection of 20th century Portuguese and British art
A white building by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation headquarters and
Calouste Gulbenkian Museum
houses contemporary and modern Portuguese art as well as an important collection of 20th century British art.
Officially named Centro de Arte Moderna Jose de Azeredo Perdigão, it displays works by Amadeo Souza Cardoso, Almada Negreiros, and Paula Rego, Portugal's best known contemporary artist. There are also works by British artists such as David Hockney, Anthony Gormley, and Bill Woodrow, and a Henry Moore sculpture in the garden.
The exhibits include drawing, painting, sculpture, and installation.
A joint ticket may be purchased for the neighboring Calouste Gulbenkian Museum and a stop in the excellent and popular cafe-restaurant is a good idea between the two museums.
Get reduced admission to the museum and ride Lisbon's metro, buses, and trams for FREE with the Lisboa Card.
