Founded in 1999, Galeria Filomena Soares was the first gallery to open in the then abandoned industrial area of East Lisbon, now a flourishing neighbourhood in full redevelopment. Its main objective is to encourage contemporary artistic production by stimulating and maintaining a bracing dialogue between artists, curators and institutions.
The refurbished warehouse holds a 1.000m2 space with two exhibition rooms, allowing for group shows and expanded solo exhibitions. Throughout its 17 years of existence, the gallery has represented emerging as well as established artists, working in diverse media. Among the first artists to present a solo exhibition there was the pivotal Portuguese artist Helena Almeida. Over the years, international artists Renée Green, Shirin Neshat, Allan Sekula, Tracey Moffatt, Günther Förg and Imi Knoebel and Portuguese artists Angela Ferreira, Bruno Pacheco, Pedro Barateiro, Rodrigo Oliveira and Rui Chafes have presented solo shows, the most recent being Dan Graham with a pavilion especially made for the exhibition. Group shows at the gallery included the artists Art&Language, Carol Bove, Keren Cytter and Slater Bradley among many others.
Continuously committed to the development of its artists, Galeria Filomena Soares has become a reference in the Portuguese and international art scene. Parallel to its exhibition programme it has published monographs and exhibition catalogues, and has maintained a pattern of participating in the leading art fairs around the world.
