Fernanda Fragateiro (1962) lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal.

Fragateiro's projects are characterized by a keen interest in re-thinking and probing modernist practices. Her practice involves an archaeology into modernism's social, political and aesthetic history through ongoing research with archival matter, materials and objects.

Operating in the three-dimensional field and defying the tension between sculpture and architecture, Fragateiro's works potentiate the relationships with each place, summing the spectator into a performative situation. Her sculptural and architectural interventions in unexpected spaces (a monastery, an orphanage, a dilapidated houses) and subtle alterations of existing landscapes reveal buried stories of construction and transformation.

Some of her projects are the result of a collaboration with architects, landscape architects and performers.

Fragateiro's work has been exhibited at at Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea de Roma (Rome, 2019, 2017), Museu Internacional de Escultura Contemporânea de Santo Tirso (Santo Tirso, 2018), Centro Botĩn (Santander, 2018), Museu de Arte Miguel Urrutia (Bogotá, 2018), Anozero - Biennial of Contemporary Art of Coimbra (Coimbra, 2017), Museu de Arte, Arquitectura e Tecnologia (Lisbon, 2017), Fundação Eugénio de Almeida (Evora, 2017, 2015), Palm Springs Art Museum (2016), Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian (Lisbon, 2016, 2012, 2004; Paris, 2013; London, 2013), CaixaForum (Barcelona, 2016, 2004), Orlando Museum of Art (2015), Palais des Beaux-Arts de Paris (2015), Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Harvard University (Cambridge, 2015), Krannert Art Museum (Champaign, 2015), CIFO Art Space (Miami, 2014), Bronx Museum (New York, 2014), Mitxelena Kulturunea (San Sebastian, 2014), MUAC Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (Mexico City, 2014), Dublin Contemporary (2011), Lisbon Architecture Triennale (2010) Institut ValenciĆ  d'Art Modern (Valencia, 2008); Centro Cultural de Belém (Lisbon, 2007); Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea (Santiago de Compostela, 2006), Fundação de Serralves (Porto, 2005), Culturgest (Lisbon, 2003).
