Abertura da exposição João Carlos

It is with delight that we present the last exhibition of the year at Casa do Design, Matosinhos. The retrospective "João Carlos" is dedicated to João Carlos Celestino Gomes, whose activity as an illustrator and designer developed from the 1920s until his death in 1961. The exhibition is curated by the designer Jorge Silva and displays a total of 111 pieces that include prints on panels and shop windows, books, magazines and leaflets. The inaugural programme starts at 4 p.m. and includes a visit to the exhibition with commentary by the curator. Organised by esad-idea, in partnership with the Matosinhos and Setúbal City Halls, the exhibition that now arrives at the Casa do Design was first presented during the Setúbal Illustration Festival 2020. The homonymous publication, co-published by esad-idea and Arranha-Céus, also emerged from this event.
