The exhibition brings together works by 18 contemporary artists and casts made from the collection of the Faculty of Fine Arts of Lisbon. It takes a close look at casting and the role it plays not only in sculpture but also in many aspects of the everyday world.
Casting has historically been a way to make copies from other artworks – from life, from nature and from buildings – that continues today.While casting in plaster still happens, the exhibition also presents pieces created through modern technologies, including 3D printing.
Alongside the historic casts, the exhibition includes contemporary works by David Bestué, Christine Borland, Marie José Burki, Steven Claydon, Michael Dean, Aleksandra Domanović, Asta Gröting, Simon Fujiwara, Oliver Laric, Jumana Manna, Jean-Luc Moulène, Charlotte Moth, Rogério Taveira, Francisco Tropa, Xavier Veilhan, Marion Verboom, Daphne Wright and Heimo Zobernig.
Curatorial team: Penelope Curtis (Chief curator), Rita Fabiana, Thierry Leviez, Armelle Pradalier. An exhibition co-produced with L'École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts Paris.
