Fine Arts Exhibition organized by the Calouste
Gulbenkian Foundation, in the National Society of Fine Arts, December 1957, and
repeated in the Oporto Ateneu Commercial sponsored by the Calouste Gulbenkian
Foundation in June 1958.
The Oporto Ateneu Commercial, in the wake of their
traditions of community devoted to artistic and cultural problems, took the
initiative in this city to repeat the essence of this important showcase,
living document of the high level reached by our modern artists.
Pereira da Silva presented the
bust of the photojournalist, Antonio Silva.
Space T celebrates in 2012, 18 years of existence, always
with a constant concern "Transforming Men Into Princes," or rather,
look at Art and the Art, the reintegration of all as no exception.
"Maternity", Watercolour on paper, 1961, 39x58cm
Founded in 1994, the Space T develops its work in
three distinct areas (Social, Cultural and Training) whose main objective is
the integration of people with bio-psycho-social (drug addicts, mentally and
physically disabled, elderly, without homelessness, HIV, etc.), between
"Normal sayings" through art, to foster self-esteem and self-concept
of each of these people.
In 1994, for many this was a utopian space, almost unreal,
but the truth is that the Space T believe and fight for a better world, where
all as we are accurate and valid, which all have potential, where there is no
"poor things" and "generous", essentially believe in a
world where all are complementary and mutually help each other, we believe the
acceptance of difference and the Other.
Throughout this period the Space T have seen their
work recognized by awards, award in 2006, the Equality is Quality Award, given
by the Commission for Equality in Labor and Employment, most notably, in 2007
the appointment by the Foundation Calouste Gulbenkian International Prize for
the Raymond Georis Price: The Mercator Found, the award in 2008, the 3rd.
Hospital of the Future Award in the category of Social Services, in 2009 the
award Prince Henry by the Brotherhood of Tripe Porto and in 2010 the award of
Honorable Mention Equality is Quality, awarded by the Commission for Gender
In order to continue to develop its activities to all
those who need us, are preparing the Auction "Happiness exists, help us
keep it!" Which will be sold artworks of artists, among others products
