After the constraints of the confinement derived from the pandemic, 2023 proved to be a magical year for Joana Vasconcelos. In January she launched the Liquid Love catalog published by La Fábrica in Madrid and in February she surprised the world unveiling Valkyrie Miss Dior at Jardin des Tuilleries in a collaboration with the French fashion house which quickly spread to the brand's flagship stores around the world. In April, she inaugurated the Tree of Life created for the Portugal-France Season at Sainte-Chapelle de Vincennes (Paris) and launched Bombom Outdoors collection for Roche Bobois while designing the brand's stand at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. In May her Bunis joined the Histories of a Collection at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
In June she presented the Wedding Cake developed for the Rothschild Foundation at Waddesdon Manor (in the United Kingdom) considered by Jonathan Jones for The Guardian the second best art show of 2023. Joana was among the 200 artists from all over the world chosen for the audience with Pope Francis at the Vatican, and was one of the chosen artists to design Vatican's Christmas Card. In July she traveled to China to present Valkyrie Miss Dior in Schenzhen and open a solo exhibition at the Tang gallery in Beijing. In September she returned to the city where she lives and works with Plug-In show at MAAT Lisbon, setting a new box office record.
In October, she was given the honor of exhibiting with the great masters at the Uffizi, through a dialogue which will remain as a milestone in her career, alongside the Guggenheim Bilbao and the Palace of Versailles. Also in October, the Joana Vasconcelos Foundation organised the third edition of the REBOOT conferences to reflect on the social responsibility of the arts world in London. The month of November took her to the stage of the Web Summit 2024 in Lisbon and the Oscar Niemeyer Museum in Curitiba, Brazil, (the largest in Latin America) for a solo exhibition that brings together a series of pieces and explores the dialogue between her work and the world of architecture.
