Or the continuous drawing
Drawings from the Teixeira de Freitas Collection
The Museu de Arte Contemporânea/CCB is marking the deposit of the Teixeira de Freitas Collection with the presentation of the exhibition Ou o desenho contínuo (Or the continuous drawing), a selection of contemporary drawings by more than 50 artists. Inspired by the title of a book by Herberto Helder (Ou o Poema Contínuo, 2001), this exhibition presupposes an understanding of drawing as a continuous process of artistic practice.
The exhibition takes the field of drawing to comprise artists’ preparatory drawings, project drawings, drawing seen as a specific medium, architect’s sketches, random doodles, school notebook pages full of reproductions of manga heroes, scribbled down directions and makeshift maps, schematic summaries of meetings, organisational charts, the schemes with which we try to guide our future choices, maps, and scientific drawing—in short, all graphic activity of inscribing.
Tuesday to Sunday, from 10 am to 7 pm (last entry 6:30 pm)
