Joaquim de Vasconcellos

JoaquimDeVasconcellos_MUDE

O MUDE dá lugar à tradição oitocentista das grandes exposições industriais, à maneira portuguesa e pela mão de Joaquim de Vasconcellos.
A vaidade dos grandes feitos da indústria, aliada a uma vontade de instruir a população no seu gosto e nas novas técnicas de produção, resultaram em museus, como é o Victoria and Albert Museum (à época South Kensington Museum) ou o Museu Industrial e Comercial do Porto.
É disso que nos falará a exposição Museu Infinito: Joaquim Vasconcelos e o Museu Industrial e Comercial do Porto (1883-1899) que hoje inaugura no MUDE.

The pride of the great achievements of the industry, combined with a desire to educate the population on their taste and in the new production techniques have resulted in museums, such as the Victoria and Albert Museum (then South Kensington Museum) or the Museu Industrial e Comercial do Porto (Industrial and Commercial Museum of Oporto).
That’s what will be the exhibition Infinite Museum: Joaquim Vasconcelos and the Industrial and Comercial Museum of Oporto (1883-1899) that opens today at MUDE.
