Partners join forces to commemorate the first centenary of Aurelia de Souza’s death

1 de April, 2022

26th May 2022 marked 100 years since the death of Aurélia de Souza, one of the most remarkable women in the country’s, and especially the North’s, artistic life during the transition from the 19th to the 20th century.

The Soares dos Reis National Museum, the University of Porto, the Catholic University, the Institute of Art History of the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of the New University of Lisbon, the Municipality of Porto and the Municipality of Matosinhos came together to commemorate the event, which was divided into multiple cultural activities between April 2022 and June 2023. The importance and prestige of Aurélia de Souza in the Portuguese and international cultural scene fully justified the combined celebration of this extraordinary artist, who was always at the forefront of her time.

Each institution presented its detailed cultural programme, but all the initiatives took place under the joint seal – highlighted above -, purposely created by Atelier R2 to mark the centenary of the death of the Porto painter and photographer.
