Guided tours to the temporary exhibitions
These tours give an overview of the maat's temporary exhibitions. Themed tours are offered to different audiences and participants are invited to engage with works of art and artists.
Geometry themed visit: Finding the Measure of Things
With Susana Anágua, Renato Santos, Fabrícia Valente, Hugo Barata, Jorge Catarino, and Patrícia Trindade
In Ancient Greece, scientists and mathematicians studied geometry in order to gain a better understanding of the world. Art also makes use of mathematics, in shape as well as in colour and materials. This tour will explore works of contemporary art seen through the logic of mathematics.
Technology themed visit: Fuel to Art
With Susana Anágua, Renato Santos, and Jorge Catarino
In this tour through contemporary art, we will discuss the issues related to technology in its more technical and scientific involvement, in order to explore the relationship between the object of art and the scientific method versus the creative method, and Nature’s phenomena.
maaturity – Art at Tea Time
Senior Programme, with Fabrícia Valente
maaturity is a programme designed to give senior citizens a chance to air their views. It invites them to share their opinions on how maat provokes and stimulates: from the anxiety and challenges that contemporary art can cause to new models on being in and belonging to a museum space, and possible perspectives on the museum’s architecture. Over 5 months, teatime will taste of art, and challenges will be set that can be translated into different languages. Together, a dynamic will be created in the museum in which your maturity is the key to new possibilities.
Ages: 60+ years. Capacity: max. 8 participants. Admission: €20 / person (season ticket)
