The close relationship between art and architecture throughout the 20th century has converted the idea of ‘construction’ into an essential key to understanding our relationship with space, landscape and the home, but above all with the practical experience of the artistic object.
The actual creative act arises from what we can define as a constructive impulse. The idea of construction is linked to architecture, but also closely to sculpture, painting and drawing, as well as to a certain conception of the object as a design, and in particular to installation.
This exhibition proposes approaching the idea of construction based on the work of very different artists who, nevertheless, share an interest in the analysis and methodologies of construction. Likewise, on the occasion of the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the museum—designed by the Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza Vieira and opened in 1993—this project emphasises the role of the CGAC building as a forum for dialogue.
