Also listed are Abraão Vicente, Délio Jasse, Flávio Miranda, Ihosvanny, Pinto and Julia Kater.

From the press release:

The collection focuses on young artists, mostly Angolans and Mozambicans, but also other nationalities of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (…) The exhibited works are characterized by a contemporary language, marked by a world vision of a cosmopolitan matrix, covering both the local cultural reality and the global social order in a post-colonial era. It is therefore the common artistic language of the young artists to which the title of this exhibition refers …

The exhibition runs until March 26.

Address: Rua Rodrigues Sampaio 29, Lisbon.
