The project 'Sala de Exposição' is made of two exhibition moments, dependent amongst themselves. 'Sala de exposição - PR' (the first part) will be on display at Ateliê Malhoa, in Casa-Museu Dr. Anastácio Gonçalves, in Lisbon. One week later opens at Galeria Graça Brandão (also in Lisbon) the second part of the project.

'Sala de Exposição' claims a very special link with the place of production. The design of the work as a whole and of every and each one of its parts in particular was determined by the place it claims and represents: the Exhibition Room at the former building of Fábrica de Plásticos Simala, in Leiria. This room is part of the new factory offices built in the early 70s. It is the first room on the left, a room with 21,8 square meters, the walls painted green and a plastic wall panelling 115cm high; on the wall on the left when entering the room, wide windows take most of the space; the ceiling has been painted white; on the walls opposite the door and on its right, a two shelves display case has been assembled and on this structure is shown an array of objects manufactured at the old factory.

The first exhibition space, Ateliê Malhoa, was once also the studio and workplace of an artist, and one who claimed in his practice a strong bond with the real as material of transformation in art, as relationship with the other and in detriment of a contemplative symbolism. The second space is a commercial art gallery, a place at once neutral and capable of hosting a diverse range of proposals.

This is a project that summons and brings together two spaces of such different nature and simultaneously so close, linked by the work they host, itself developed in representation of the Sala de Exposição at Fábrica de Plásticos Simala, now converted in Nuno Sousa Vieira' studio.
