Fernanda Fragateiro (PRT)
Fernanda Fragateiro (Montijo, 1962) lives and works in Lisbon.
Fragateiro’s projects are characterized by a strong interest in rethinking and probing modernist practices. Her practice involves an archaeological approach to the social, political and aesthetic history of modernism through continuous research with material from archives, documents and objects.
Acting in the field of three-dimensionality, challenging the tension between architecture and sculpture, Fernanda Fragateiro’s work enhances the relationship with each place, calling the spectator to a performative position.

Her work has been exhibited in different museums and national and international institutions such as the Bomba Gens Center d’Art (Valencia), Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna Contemporanea (Roma), International Museum of Contemporary Sculpture in Santo Tirso, Museu de Miguel Art Urrutia (Bogotá), Museum of Architecture, Art and Technology (Lisbon), CaixaForum (Barcelona), Palais des Beaux-Arts (Paris), Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Harvard University (Cambridge), The Bronx Museum of the Arts (New York), Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (Mexico City), Centro Cultural de Belém, Serralves Foundation (Porto), among others.

Her work is represented in several collections, among which: Collection of Contemporary Art of the State, Portugal; Fundació Per Amor a l’Art, Valencia; Per The Ella Fontanals Cisneros Collection, Miami; Fundación Neme, Bogotá; Serralves Foundation, Porto; Fundação EDP, Lisbon; Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon; António Cachola Collection, Elvas; Berardo Museum Collection, Lisbon; Caixa Geral de Depósitos Contemporary Art Collection, Lisbon; Galician Center for Contemporary Art, Santiago de Compostela; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; Marcelino Botín Foundation, Santander; La Caixa Foundation, Barcelona; Fundación Helga de Alvear, Cáceres.
