Joana Vasconcelos is a contemporary visual artist with a 25 year career that spans from monumental sculpture to drawing. International attention first came with the Venice Bienale and she was the first Portuguese artist to exhibit at Guggenheim Bilbao and the youngest artist ever to have been shown at Versailles Palace. Her work updates the arts & crafts concept to the 21st century and incorporates everyday objects with irony and humour, creating a bridge between domestic environment and public space, while questioning the status of women, our consumerism society and the collective identity.
Through 2020, her work is displayed in Boston (USA), Lisbon (Portugal), Yorkshire (England), Aarhus (Denmark), New Dehli (India) and Macau (China).
