PLMJ Foundation, established by PLMJ - A.M. Pereira, Saragga Leal, Oliveira Martins, Judice and Associates, in Lisbon, has been developing a regular activity in the collecting field since the late 1990s. It is an entity of relevant cultural interest, with a collection of corporate art recognized in Portugal and abroad, and plays an important role in the dissemination of the visual arts to the public.
It holds a collection of contemporary Portuguese art and, since 2010, also from the other member countries of the CPLP, and has been asserting itself as a Portuguese-speaking cultural institution that understands the breadth of its activity in the context of Portuguese-speaking world.
The project "Portuguese-speaking Authors" consists of an exhibition of works by artists representing the Portuguese-speaking universe that shape a plural geography, owned by a generation that developed their work in a context of a diaspora that extends to many cities and places around the world. It aims to show the public in general and in particular that of Macao the work that has been developed in the Visual Arts among Portuguese-speaking countries, through a close look at the new aesthetic proposals and the experiences that, among the Portuguese-speaking world, brings new interpretations and a global perspective on our time and its artistic creation. This exhibition is the result of a selection of over 60 pieces from the PLMJ Foundation, where some of the most relevant names of this artistic scene are represented.
