Jorge Pinheiro
D'après Fibonacci and the world out there
A project by Cabrita Reis with Jorge Pinheiro

September 16, 2017 to January 7, 2018
 

D'après Fibonacci and the world out there brings together paintings, drawings and sculptures by the influential Portuguese artist Jorge Pinheiro (Coimbra, 1931). The exhibition, based on an idea by artist Pedro Cabrita Reis, with an exhibition design conceived by the Pritzker Prize winning architect, Eduardo Souto Moura, continues the Serralves Museum’s programme dedicated to the work of significant 20th century artists whose work is yet to be known by a broader public outside of Portugal.

A dynamic dialogue between Jorge Pinheiro and Cabrita Reis has generated a selection of 80 works focusing on specific periods of Pinheiro’s career dating from the 1960s until the present, in which figurative painting and the language of concrete and conceptual abstractions coincide. The selection also includes a major new sculpture produced specially for the exhibition.

An accompanying catalogue features the works in the Serralves presentation together with a selection of 90 drawings that form part of a sister exhibition at the Fundação Carmona e Costa in Lisbon. Texts include an interview with Jorge Pinheiro by Cabrita Reis and an essay by poet and critic João Miguel Fernandes Jorge.

Jorge Pinheiro: D'après Fibonacci and the world out there is a project by Cabrita Reis with Jorge Pinheiro, with the collaboration of Eduardo Souto de Moura. The exhibition is organized in partnership with the Fundação Carmona e Costa, Lisbon.

Daniel Steegmann Mangrané
A transparent leaf, instead of the mouth

September 30, 2017 to January 7, 2018

Daniel Steegmann Mangrané is the eighth artist in the Serralves Museum’s "Contemporary Projects" series, a dynamic and multi-disciplinary platform for emerging and established artists whose work resonates with our current moment.

The art of Daniel Steegmann Mangrané assumes a myriad of forms in which the constructed and the natural world come together. Inspired by histories of modernist abstraction, architecture and the perceptual and organizational structures of nature, Mangrané’s work encompasses drawing, sculpture, light, and film elaborated as part of poetically scripted environmental spaces.

For Serralves, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané has conceived a living landscape for the Museum’s central gallery in which a glass pavilion housing a garden and mimetic creatures, a set of free standing sculptures, a wall drawing, a hologram and windows that alter the experience of viewing are brought together to create a living ecosystem of transfigurations and metamorphosis, both real and symbolic.

Daniel Steegmann Mangrané: A transparent leaf, instead of the mouth is organized by the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Porto, and is curated by the Museum´s director Suzanne Cotter with Paula Fernandes.

Construction of the garden pavilion has been supported by researchers from the Associate Laboratory for the Centre for Research in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources (CIBIO-InBIO), Foundation for Science and Technology, Porto.
