HARD TO PICTURE

A TRIBUTE TO AD REINHARDT

17/06/2017 - 21/01/2018

In tandem with his writings on art and his pictorial praxis, which would culminate in the radical and emblematic works which his monochrome paintings turned out to be, in the 1930s Ad Reinhardt developed an activity as an illustrator, and published caustically witty drawings in the American press. Through a broad selection of illustrations and drawings, the exhibition underscores the artist’s great freedom of tone and commitment as much with regard to political and social issues as to art, and abstract art in particular.

FLATLAND / ABSTRACTIONS NARRATIVES #2

07/10/2017 - 15/04/2018

Borrowing its title from a book written in 1884 by Edwin A. Abbott, where the leading characters are geometric forms, and the narrator, a Square, describes his discovery of a three-dimensional world, this group show deals with the way in which, from the 1960s on, artists have drawn inspiration from the formal abstract vocabularies which ran through the 20th century, infiltrating them with narratives. Flatland / Abstractions narratives #2 brings together some thirty artists from different generations.

SU-MEI TSE

NESTED

07/10/2017 - 08/04/2018

Marked by her cosmopolitan origins, between Europe and Asia, and by her interest in the world’s acoustic dimension, Su-Mei Tse’s praxis is permeated by issues such as time, memory, rhythm, and language. Assuming the most varied of forms – sculptures, videos, photographs, installations –, her works invariably create shifts between different fields.

JOÃO PENALVA

03/03/2018 - 16/09/2018

João Penalva’s artworks employ a wide variety of supports and materials. They are presented in the form of large installation setups as well as more intimate pieces in which image, text and sound, language and memory co-exist to create poetic fictions that leave plenty of room for interpretation.

NO MAN’S LAND

17/05/2018 - 06/01/2019

Sanctuarization is one of the answers to ecological concerns about natural territories: those intended as such, but also those resulting from effects induced by military or political situations. These are all situations aiming to regulate the impact of human presence on the nonhuman living space which today strongly modify the cultural imagination, requiring us to re-examine the state of our sensitivity towards the natural world.

JEFF WALL

06/10/2018 - 18/02/2019

A major figure in the art of recent decades, since the late 1970s Jeff Wall has been developing artwork that has profoundly changed the way we look at the photographic medium. By embracing it within an enlarged pictorial tradition and thinking of it in terms of its relations with other arts - painting in particular, but also cinema, literature and theatre - he has redefined its essence and opened up what is possible. This large-scale exhibition brings together some thirty recent and older pieces by the artist.
