Quote / Unquote. Between Appropriation and Dialogue showcases a selection of works from the EDP Foundation Art Collection, on the theme of appropriation in contemporary art. During the time period that defines the collection — from the 1960’s to the present day — the exhibition proposes a transversal interpretation of these practices: the direct appropriation of images, texts or other forms of cultural production, the quotation as an element that contributes to the production of meaning, or the conscious dialogue with authors and pre-existing creations.
 

Undertaken as a collaborative curatorship — Gabriela Vaz-Pinheiro and Ana Anacleto — the exhibition is structured around three sub-headings: “Archive and Everyday Life”, “Spatiality and Politics” and “Image and Narrative”, whose aim is to bring together sets of works around elective affinities, thus also proposing intrinsic dialogues between very diverse artworks.

This is the thrid moment in the series of exhibitions Perspectives | EDP Foundation Art Collection and it will be on display at Central 2, after having been presented at Galeria Municipal do Porto, of which EDP Foundation is a patron.
