What to do

«A Colecção no Palácio da Bolsa»


To:24.09.2017

City: Porto

Where: Palácio da Bolsa

In the decades of the 60's and the 70's, the artistic languages have undergone a paradigm shift. The sculpture was not exception. In this exhibition the works of Ângelo de Sousa, João Machado and Zulmiro de Carvalho report us to this reality. In this presentation of works from the Coleção Serralvesat the Palácio da Bolsa, some sculptures take over the ground, regardless of the plinth, other transmit us visible concerns with the ideas of seriality, industrial manufacturing and literality of technique (what we see is what we see). These elements are enough to realise that the Portuguese sculptors have submitted proposals which today confront us with the various pats that were making the art more and more direct in contact with the public, from pop art, english abstract sculpture, and american minimalism. This presentation is the result of a partnership between the Palácio da Bolsa and the Museu de Serralves de Arte Contemporânea no Portounder which works from the Serralves Collection are displayed in the historical interiors of the Palace.
