This project by Cabrita Reis with Jorge Pinheiro 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.
