Germinal, The Cabrita Reis Section in the EDP Foundation Art Collection

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
