Study Center


Under the initiative of the collectors Richard Treger and António Saint Silvestre, The Art Center of São João da Madeira has opened a study room with the goal of promoting the knowledge on Art Brut, Outsider Art and non-western art movements.


Within the following months we will upload the entire bibliographic archive of the collectors that is already available for on-site consultation to all public free of charge. In exceptional cases (generally for purposes of research) and after filling in the form, catalogs and books may be borrowed for up to 2 weeks without any charge.


The study center is open Monday to Friday from 14:30 to 19:30 at the following address: Centro de Arte de S. João da Madeira, Oliva Creative Factory, Rua da Fundição, 240, 3700-119 S. João da Madeira.
