DA COLEÇÃO NA PÓVOA DE VARZIM: QUE SAIS-JE?: LIVROS E EDIÇÕES DE ARTISTA
from 30 NOV 2018 to 17 MAR 2019
Que sais-je?’ presents more than thirty books and editions produced between the 1960s and today by twenty four artists. It draws its title from the famous French pocket encyclopedia with the same name initiated in 1941 and designed to introduce to the general public a wide range of subjects from philosophy to pedagogy.
The exhibition considers how classic forms to collect and transmit knowledge, such as atlases, dictionaries and encyclopedias, have been used by artists since the early avant-gardes of the twentieth century. At a time when school and academic models are increasingly used by artists and curators, and when the eminently pedagogical forms of ateliers, seminars and conferences hold an important place in countless exhibitions, ‘Que sais-je?’ enables us to grasp the way in which these editions have always presented alternative visions of what ‘transmitting knowledge’ might mean.
‘Que sais-je?’ in Museu Nogueira da Silva is part of a programme of exhibitions and sited presentations of works from the Serralves Collection that furthers the Museum’s aim of making the Collection visible and accessible to a broader public around the country.
