Artist Residency: Vanessa da Silva

Inauguration of GDS Artist Residency Programme

The gallery has invited artist Vanessa da Silva to inaugurate the artist-in-residence programme in September 2019.


Galeria Duarte Sequeira presents an artist-in-residence programme aiming to support a strong international exchange, connect cultures and create local events in Braga. The residency programme invites international artists to live and work in Braga while developing individual projects and participating in the public programme of Galeria Duarte Sequeira. The programme aims to provide a setting to establish collaborations and develop conversations between local and international artists and initiatives in Braga.


Vanessa da Silva (b. São Paulo, Brazil) lives and works in London. Her interdisciplinary process-based practice combines sculpture, installation and performance focusing on issues of identity formation, migration and displacement. Through the weaving of the personal and the political, da Silva investigates the overlaying and fusion of histories and cultures that builds oneself.
