FIRST VIEW: ARTIST’S ALBUMS IN THE SERRALVES COLLECTION
from 30 SEP 2017 to 11 FEB 2018
The exhibition "First View: Artist’s albums in the Serralves Collection" presents a carefully chosen selection of albums and portfolios from artist’s publications, acquired between 1990 and 2014. These albums or portfolios include works by Eduardo Arroyo, Lourdes de Castro, Bob Cobbing, Raymond Hains, E.M. de Melo e Castro, Matt Mullican, Martial Raysse, Paula Rego, Julião Sarmento, Carel Visser, among others. They are considered to be objects that convey an accumulation of actions by the respective artists. The criteria underpinning this selection are based on the historical-biographical relation of these artists and their relationship with the publishers, which often had a decisive impact on their careers and the distribution of these works.

"First View: Artist’s Albums in the Serralves Collection" is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art of Serralves, Porto, and is curated by Sónia Oliveira, Library Coordinator.
