Ellipse Foundation - Contemporary Art Collection


Bernd & Hilla Becher, Gastanks 1963-1997, 2003, 16 gelatin silver prints


Até 18 de Setembro pode visitar a primeira exposição da Ellipse Foundation - Contemporary Art Collection.
O Art Center situa-se num antigo armazém em Alcoitão, Cascais.

«The Ellipse Foundation's main objective is to develop a Contemporary Art Collection that aims to become an international reference regarding global art production in the turn of the millennium. The Collection reflects the multiplicity of media, techniques, aesthetics and sensibilities considered the main feature of contemporary art's present situation.

The core of the Collection is composed of central works by artists that established themselves over the last decade and currently enjoy great recognition in the international art panorama. These include Miroslaw Balka, Rui Chafes, José Pedro Croft, Stan Douglas, Jimmie Durham, Olafur Eliasson, Douglas Gordon, Pierre Huyghe, Thomas Hirschhorn, Mona Hatoum, William Kentridge, Ernesto Neto, Gabriel Orozco, Raymond Pettibon, Jack Pierson, João Tabarra and Kara Walker.
Retrospectively, these artists are contextualized from an historical perspective that goes back to the late 1970s/1980s, and includes works by John Baldessari, Bernd and Hilla Becher, James Coleman, Tony Cragg, Dan Graham, David Hammons, Cristina Iglesias, Ilya Kabakov, Mike Kelley, Louise Lawler, Sherrie Levine, Cildo Meireles, Richard Prince, Cabrita Reis, Julião Sarmento, Thomas Schutte, Cindy Sherman, Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Lawrence Weiner.

The Collection's more current and prospective component invests in recently emerging artists, as is the case of Vasco Araújo, Fitkrit Atay, Slater Bradley, Olaf Breuning, Gardar Einer Einarsson, Elmgreen and Dragset, Cameron Jamie, Marepe, João Onofre, Damian Ortega, João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva, Muntean/Rosenblum, Julian Rosefeldt, Thomas Scheibitz and João Pedro Vale.»
