'Artists Engaged? Maybe' brings together artists from Europe, Africa and South America whose work is engaged with politics, with beauty, with art, with language(s), or with the communities in which they live or work. The exhibition features a variety of works in diverse formats: photography, sculpture, painting, drawing, film and video, and installation. Says curator António Pinto Ribeiro, 'In this exhibition we have sought to avoid the idea of a hegemonic theme justifying the impositions of a curator… It is an exhibition of fragments, doubts and images in transition or mutation'.

Artists include Athi-Patra Ruga, Berna Reale, Bouchra Khalili, Bruno Boudjelal, Celestino Mondlane, Conrad Botes, Demián Flores, Eduardo Basualdo, Eva Grubinger, Fredy Alzate, Johanna Calle, João Ferro Martins, Luiz Zerbini, Miguel Jara, Paul Edmunds, Pedro Barateiro, Raul Mourão, Sandra Monterroso, Simon Gush, Solon Ribeiro, Wim Botha.
