Catalogue Luís Onofre

The Shoe Museum, which opened on 5 November 2016, is a place that aims to showcase, in an innovative and simultaneously convergent way, the history of shoe manufacturing, the evolution of shoes through time and the reality of shoe design nowadays. With these objectives in mind, the Municipality invited designer Luís Onofre to co-curate the opening temporary exhibition at this new museum space.

Catalogue Anastasia Radevich

Anastasia has created allegories of multiple worlds for herself. Her creations take us on a journey between what is, what was, what could be. The chronologies of time and the countless spaces her art-shoes inhabit forward us to a sort of dystopia or negative utopia. We are warned.

Catalogue Maor Zabar + Kobi Levi

Creativity and disruptive thinking characterise the work of Maor Zabar and Kobi Levi. They transform the products of two very different industrial sectors – shoes and hats – with a very close connection to S. João da Madeira, its history, its present and certainly its future, into true artistic manifestos, through which they reflect and make us reflect about the simplest and almost imperceptible things of everyday life.

Catalogue Harvy Santos + Amber Ambrose Aurèle

Between the world of fashion and the world of art, Amber Ambrose Aurèle doesn’t produce shoes. She explores stories that draw inspiration from the artistic universe of Piet Mondriaan, as well as Shakespeare’s heroines or ‘opanci’ traditional Serbian shoes which she reinvents with long high heels. She incites profound reflexions, urgently questioning the world. And she repeatedly questions a woman’s role in the world and the stereotypes that still seem to befall her.

Catalogue Estibalitz Diaz de Durana + Carolin Holzhuber

Introduced in the context of the programme cycle “Creating between worlds. From head to toe”, produced by the Hat and Shoe Museums, the exhibition “Elevated. Carolin Holzhuber footwear” brings us two symbolic worlds which seem antagonistic for this designer, fashion and art, the wearability of design as opposed to the dysfunctionality of art, the place of aesthetics in counterpoint to the place of ethics.

Catalogue Araceli Sancho + Kei Kagami

Kei Kagami looks at shoes, not as isolated pieces of a collection, but as an extension of his own narrative construction which is the basis to the development of his clothing collections. Setting aside commercial interests, he is dedicated solely to creating the right image for the collection. His shoes reveal all the creative potential of the designer, a product of his personal expression, his creative individuality and above all, his artistic honesty.

Catalogue Marianne Jongkind + Costa Magarakis

In the hands of Costa Magarakis, the most diverse models of high-heeled shoes, trainers, big boots and even skates become hybrid and realistic objects that emulate the deformed body of an animal, curious means of transport, architectural elements or the most bizarre of creatures.
