Carlos Bunga. Where I Am Free

Inês Grosso

Where I am free was the first exhibition exclusively dedicated to the role of drawing in Carlos Bunga’s oeuvre. This exhibition was the result of a collaboration between the Fundação Carmona e Costa and MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, which has showed the artist’s first large survey show in Portugal. The show brought together a selection of drawings, sketches and notes — some of which had been stored in the artist’s archive for more than a decade and had never been exhibited —, but also recent works specially produced for the Fundação Carmona e Costa.

The simultaneous exhibitions offered a unique opportunity to revisit Carlos Bunga’s earlier works, but also to discover his most recent creations.

In 2003 Carlos won the EDP Foundation New Artists Award.
