This exhibition is organized by VICARTE and the Millennium bcp Foundation.
VICARTE is a research unit which is a partnership between the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa and the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Universidade de Lisboa. This glass and ceramic research centre at the Caparica campus of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa connects the present to the past by developing new possibilities for glass, ceramics and contemporary art along with conservation and restoration sciences.
Additionally, traditional methods of glass working are combined with
new theoretical and technical approaches to the material.

responsibility through its cultural activities. The exhibition gallery and its
