Calouste Gulbenkian Museum
Museum in Lisbon, Portugal
The Gulbenkian Museum can take you from Ancient Egypt to the present day across its two collections. The Founder’s Collection and the Modern Collection each has their own specific presentation, but they also speak to each other in temporary exhibitions and projects. These set up dialogues across time, between different kinds of art and artefacts, and between East and West. Contemporary artists remind us how contemporary ancient art can be, and how objects from other places represent journeys which speak to us all in different ways, whether we are at home or abroad.
