Germinal was the first big exhibition on Pedro Cabrita Reis’s collection, which was acquired by EDP Foundation in 2015. The exhibition covered a vast and significant array of works, focussing particularly on a reflection about the initial and founding moments of the careers of Portuguese artists – an approach which gave the exhibition its title – and whose careers have been cemented over time.
With a vast and solid representation of the 90s generation, but also including artists from earlier and later generations, this exhibition shown a set of defining works by over 30 artists. For the exhibition space were thought four sections, mainly as a pretext for moments of reflection and dialogue throughout the exhibition space: “The fractured subject”, “Finding the Other”, “The prevalence of technology”, “The legacy of images”.
This was the fourth iteration in the series of exhibitions Perspectives | EDP Foundation’s Art Collection
