A exposição Cabrita: Quatro Esculturas e um Auto-Retrato em Faro apresenta obras da Coleção de Serralves e trabalhos inéditos do artista em diversos locais da cidade de Faro. Com reconhecimento internacional consolidado, o trabalho de Cabrita tornou-se crucial para o entendimento da escultura a partir de meados da década de 1980.

This exhibition brings together works by Pedro Cabrita Reis (Lisbon, 1956) from the Serralves Collection and new works created by the artist for this presentation, which is spread throughout the city of Faro, covering three exhibition spaces: the Municipal Museum of Faro, Associação 289 and Galeria Arco.


Cabrita's work became crucial to the understanding of sculpture from the mid-1980s onwards. His complex artistic practice, characterized by an idiosyncratic philosophical and poetic discourse, encompasses a wide variety of media: painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, and installations composed of found materials and manufactured objects. The use of a wide range of materials of great simplicity, the constant dialogue with the history of art, and the combination of memories, gestures, and actions of daily life, accentuate the strong metaphorical impetus of Cabrita’s creations.

The presentation of Cabrita: Four Sculptures and a Self-Portrait in Faro integrates the Touring Exhibitions Programme of the Serralves Collection that furthers the Foundation´s aim of making the collection visible and accessible to the public across the country. This exhibition was organized in partnership with the artist and the Municipality of Faro.
