The Museum of Modern Art together with Mission of Portugal in Azerbaijan will host the exhibition called “I wanna be adored” by Andre Almeida e Sousa, Paulo Brighenti and Tomas Cunha Ferreira on April 23.

The exhibition, which will be held at the Museum of Modern Art, is Portugal`s first independent cultural initiative in Azerbaijan.

The artists who participate at this exhibition and the date of this event are connected with the Portugal’s Carnation Revolution which happened on the 25th of April in 1974. Because, as if, after 50 years of isolation, this Revolution marked a retrieval of Portugal to modernity and to the world.

The title of the exhibition "I wanna be adored" was taken from a 1989 single of the English Stone Roses band by the artists.

The title of this exhibition “I wanna be adored” for these three artists – Andre Almeida e Sousa, Paulo Brighenti and Tomas Cunha Ferreira – marked the transition between the older generation, who witnessed the revolution and the generation who grows up in a modern time.

The magnificent paintings and sculptures of Azerbaijani authors are exhibited in Museum of Modern Art. These works altogether form the composition that reflects the aspiration, strivings and freedom of the human spirit.
