Al Cartio and Constance Ruth Howes.
The works of Al Cartio (Honolulu, 1951) and Constance Ruth Howes (Baltimore, 1947) may not at first glance seem to have much in common. Other than the fact that both spent time in Portugal – Cartio in 1981, and Howes in 2015 – there is little stylistically and biographically, that connects or relates them. However, the closer examination of their œuvres provided by this exhibition, curated by Ana Jotta and Ricardo Valentim, puts their work in dialogue, revealing surprising links between their ways of seeing and considering reality.
