‘In March 2021, during the pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the Municipal Galleries created an online program Quatro Mãos aimed at children and young people who were at home due to the closing of schools. In this online program, two or three sessions took place where both the young person and the artist, in a one-on-one relationship, were able to share ideas and find affinities which allowed them to create a piece together. It was through this correspondence work that the cast of artists who participated in “four hands” was formed. The encounters flowed in an intimately public way, whose images reproduced here are the testimony of the unique experiences of the allowed proximity in such troubled times’.
