The first group exhibition of Portuguese art of the 21st century to be presented in the United States, “Second Nature” is both a portrait of recent artistic production in Portugal and an exploration of the relationship between human culture and the environment. The exhibition, hosted by the Kreeger Museum, includes approximately 30 works and is the first to go on tour from the Museum of Art, Architecture, and Technology (MAAT) in Lisbon, which opened to the public in October 2016. It is curated by art historian Luisa Especial and MAAT Director Pedro Gadanho, formerly Curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
