The exhibition was inspired by the stucco works of the 18th century Italian artist João Grossi

The sculptor MIGUEL RODRIGUES exhibits CATARINA, an exhibition of new sculptures, inspired by the stucco works of the 18th century Italian artist João Grossi. With these new sculptures, Miguel honours his passion for Baroque, cultivated from a young age in his birthplace Coimbra, Portugal. The centuries of white stucco and the beauty of gilded carvings inspires Miguel Rodrigues to create his own “Hyperbaroque” universe creating a modern intake that can be seen in the sculptures of the Catarina exhibition at the AWC Gallery, located in Gate Avenue DIFC, it will be open to the public until the end of January 2024, curated by Anne-Floor Bouma Çeliktopuz.
