Museum of Modern Art and Western Antiquities, Section II Department of Carving and Modelling: Form and Volume

Cristina Guerra Contemporary Art

17 November 2019 - 11 January 2020
Lisbon, Portugal

Curated by Jens Hoffmann

The exhibition presents a wide variety of sculptures, from riffs on readymades, to work inspired by historical figurative or minimalist sculpture, to highly idiosyncratic ceramic objects with bright colors. It will also include prints, paintings, rubbings, text, and other kinds of works that are generally not considered sculpture but here comment or expand the definition. The display presents the diversity of contemporary sculpture, acknowledges the contributions the featured sculptors have made to ongoing discourses of art, and probes the question of what it even means to be “sculptural”.
