Located in the historic centre of Lisbon since 2000, Perve Galeria presents exhibitions of modern and contemporary art, since November 2000. The gallery develops and promotes nationally and internationally artistic, cultural and technological projects. One of its primary objectives has been the dissemination of authors coming from the Portuguese speaking countries, not only in the fields of visual arts but also with multimedia art and interactivity. Perve Galeria’s history, includes exhibitions and the organization of multiple national and international artistic initiatives, with emphasis on curatorial projects such as: International Triennial of Contemporary Art in Prague (Czech Republic, 2008); Interna-tional traveling exhibition “Mobility Re-reading the Future” (Poland, Finland, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Portugal, 2008-09); “Lusofonias” (Lisbon, Dakar, New Delhi, 2009-17); the 2nd Global Art Meeting with the participation of more than 150 artists from 3 continents (Portugal, 2008-09); “The Surrealists 1949-2009” (Portugal, 2009) and “555-Ciclo Gutenberg” (Portugal, 2010). In 2013 the gallery launched a new museological space in Lisbon: Freedom House - Mário Cesariny that is a versatile artistic project, built in honor of the poet and surrealist painter Mário Cesariny de Vasconcelos, that hosts the artistic and documentary estate, bequeathed by the artist, along with some collections that began to be gathered from the beginning of the 90’s. Among the collections are the most emblematic ones dedicated to Surrealism, African Primitive Art, Erotic Art and Lusophony. The professionalism of Perve Galeria is evident in its already 17 years of presence in the art market. During 17 years of regular activity, there were many initiatives developed in Portugal and abroad, as in the case of Senegal, Brazil, UAE and India. The gallery also promotes the diffusion of contemporary art through the edition of screen-prints and the edition of signed and numbered art books. Information about this and other initiatives (exhibitions, LusoPhonies Art Collections, artists and artistic editions) is available at:
