Narrative of a collection

Portuguese Art in the Collection of Secretary of State for Culture (1960-1990)

2015-07-16

The exhibition "Narrative of a collection - Portuguese Art in the Collection of the Secretary of State for Culture (1960-1990)" discloses the areas of the yearned expansion of Museu do Chiado. Moreover, underlines the exceptional quality of this important collection, essential for any reflection on Portuguese art in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, critical years of our artistic production, characterized by the rupture with academicism and the access to international artistic languages cutting edge.

The exhibition shows the most important works of this collection, acquired over several decades by government entities with responsabilities in the cultural area, an initiative of the portuguese State in which it plays an important patronage role in the context of visual arts.

"Narrative of a Collection" presents itself as a first approach to the collection SEC - rich enough to allow multiple lines of work, new perspectives, unedited dialogue. The new museum space was crucial to the exhibition design and installation: the multitude of rooms with their different dimensions made possible the relationship with the myriad of grammars and techniques of the works, by installing in contiguous spaces, artistic languages that are formally closer
. The goal: to build a visual path that allows the visitor to relate to each work, but simultaneously establish possible synapses and dialogues between them.
