Culture: Top artist Vasconcelos opens newest exhibition in Majorca

An exhibition of new works by Portuguese contemporary artist Joana Vasconcelos is to be opened on Saturday in a new space in the Horrach Moya Gallery in Palma de Majorca, Spain.

The artist’s studio said the exhibition brought together “a recent nucleus of sculptures that combine materials like glazed tiles, crochet and Murano glass,” reflecting “research into new directions in the artist’s work.”

Vasconcelos recently opened an exhibition at the Gucci Museum in Florence, designed the Portuguese pavilion for the 55th Arts Biennale in Venice and has a retrospective exhibition or 35 pieces open to the public at Lisbon’s Palácio da Ajuda.

Last year, the Portuguese artist was the first woman and the youngest artist to put on a display at the Palace of Versailles in France and since then has topped the ranking for the exhibition with most visitors there.
