April 5 - September 6

Works from the EDP Foundation Portuguese Art Collection from 1942 to the present day.

From the organizers:

“With 138 pieces by 56 artists, covering 80 years and thus intersecting generations, this exhibition featuring works from the EDP Foundation Portuguese Art Collection is curated by the artist Paulo Mendes, and intentionally spans its entire temporal arch: from 1942 to the present day. 

The exhibition revolves around “memory” and the ways in which it is produced and awakened, both as instrument and product of collective making: cast in the spatial envelope of Central Tejo, a physical embodiment of industrial memory from the early 20th century, it is presented in four key thematic chapters, namely work, laziness, sound and word, the latter two representing forms through which memories are captured and enunciated. 

Throughout the exhibition, two new commissions are presented as elements from parallel narratives that eventually merge into a unique work: a literary composition by the celebrated author Gonçalo M. Tavares and a musical composition by José Valente, both of which were built around the rhythmical characters of the Portuguese language.”
