GUIDED TOUR IN PORTUGUESE SIGN LANGUAGE: "Wolfgang Tillmans"
00 0000
Guided tour to the exhibition "WOLFGANG TILLMANS: ON THE VERGE OF VISIBILITY".

In partnership with the Laredo association, Serralves Museum offers a programme for the deaf or hard of hearing. One guided tour in Portuguese Sign Language will be available per month from May 2015 onwards, to make the exhibitions and spaces of the Serralves Foundation more accessible to this public. 

For his first exhibition in Portugal, Wolfgang Tillmans (1968, Remscheid, Germany) continues to expand the possibilities for the reception of his oeuvre through a radical repositioning of its multiple dimensions. At Serralves, he pays particular attention to what he describes as his ‘Vertical Landscapes’, photographs of the natural phenomena of light when day meets night, sky meets earth, cloud meets sky. Dating from 1995 until the present, and printed in scales ranging from the standard size of photographic printing paper, to the panoramic expanse of four metres in size, the photographs encapsulate the expressive potential of Tillmans' highly developed visual formalism, and his engagement with photography as inherently physical as it is immaterial. In their unnerving beauty, produced partially by the camera makers technical advances and partly by the photographer's insistence on allowing those advances to show, they create a challenge to the canon of visual cool preeminent in today's visual culture.

‘Wolfgang Tillmans: On the Verge of Visibility’ is organized by the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Porto and curated by Suzanne Cotter, Director, assisted by exhibition curator Paula Fernandes.
