forbiden art?

Bringing together 70 pieces from its storage rooms in the “Tecto Pintado Room” – representing masculine and feminine nudes, and even sex scenes – and drawing attention to some of the artworks in its permanent exhibition, the MNAA intends, in the context of museums and using their own “weapons”, to stimulate critical thinking and encourage debate on the surprisingly contemporary question: can art be forbidden?
This exhibition evokes the former “Reserved Rooms” of some museums, with concupiscent paintings covering the walls and the collection as a whole superseding the individual importance or consideration of one or another work of art.
