Heaven, Hell, and Somewhere in Between: Portuguese Popular Art

A companion to the 2015 MOA exhibition, Heaven, Hell and Somewhere in Between, this volume combines in-depth analysis of Portuguese popular art with stunning photographs. From ceramics, masks, and puppets to medieval frescoes and roadside graffiti, curator Anthony Alan Shelton explores the playful, subversive creations of a nation forever trapped between land and sea, salvation and damnation, penitence and transcendence.
