I Wear My Voice on My Sleeve: Fado and Fashion at MUDE Museum

Mude - Alexandra (Traje de Cena do Teatro Politeama 
On the first anniversary of the consecration of Fado as Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, the Fado Museum inaugurates a premiere exhibition at MUDE, entitled "With this voice I dress - Fado and Fashion."

On display until March 31, the exhibition offers a voyage to the world of images that "dressed" Fado and that during the 20th & 21st centuries have developed and created its identity.

The exhibition runs simultaneously at MUDE and the Fado Museum, creating a new cultural circuit in Lisboa.

One focus is centered on the contemporary, recreating costumes worn by singers as diverse as Ana Moura, Mariza or Carminho, while the other reveals Fado's historical evolution, evoking some cult figures, such as Amalia Rodrigues.

Opening hours Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm.
