20th anniversary of the Vieira da Silva Foundation
Au Fil de l’espace is the title of the exhibition celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Arpad Szenes – Vieira da Silva Foundation (FASVS) that will open on Thursday 14 May, 2015. This show is organised with the Galerie Jaeger Bucher / Jeanne-Bucher which has promoted very early on the avant-garde artists of the abstraction of the 1950s and which has been representing Marie Helena Vieira da Silva’s work since 1933.
The exhibition benefits from international loans of major institutions and collectors which will allow to present some works for the first time in the Foundation dedicated to Arpad Szenes and Vieira da Silva in Portugal.
A room will be dedicated to works by artists that were a source of inspiration and with whom the couple had friendly relationships: Jean Arp, Roger Bissière et Paul Klee, Jean Dubuffet, Joaquin Torres-García, Mark Tobey, Nicolas de Staël, Germaine Richier, Hans Reichel etc.
