Calendar Add to the calendar

For several weeks, the Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang (born in Quanzhou, China, 1957) will be transforming the Hall of Realms into his studio in order to create a group of works inspired by the memory of that historic space in a dialogue with the Old Masters. This artist’s residency will culminate with the creation of The Spirit of Painting, a monumental work measuring approximately 20 metres wide. In addition, the Museum’s Jerónimos Building will house a monographic exhibition of the artist’s other paintings created with ignited gunpowder.
