3 +1 ARTE CONTEMPORÂNEA opened in February 2007 with the aim of promoting the work of emerging and established Portuguese and International artists, whose works illustrate the diversity of contemporary artistic practice.  The presentation of contemporary International artists less known by the Portuguese public as well as that of emerging national talent, has been a formula which the gallery has nurtured over the years. 3 +1 is committed to its evolution and development as a gallery, encouraging and supporting projects by its artists both in and outside of Portugal and by focusing on the internationalization in our programation and by participating in art fairs.
