The Story of Stories shows how Paula Rego, a Portuguese/British artist who revolutionised the ways women are represented and is not one to compromise her truths, authentically confronts oppression, authority, and institutional violence while not being afraid to reveal her own personal nature and socio-political context.

The exhibition, curated by Alistair Hicks, re-affirms the importance of her work in Portugal in the 1960s and focuses on her emergence as an important artist on the London scene in the 1980s and 1990s. The Story of Stories focuses on Paula Rego and her work in different disciplines.

Within the scope of the exhibition, an exhibition tour will be held with a limited number of participants, accompanied by the curator of the exhibition Alistair Hicks.
