Press release

For Gallery Weekend Berlin, Buchmann Galerie is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition by Pedro Cabrita Reis at the gallery.

 

Pedro Cabrita Reis (b. 1956 in Lisbon, Portugal) is a foremost visual artist of his generation and one of Portugal’s most internationally renowned artists.

 

Working across a wide range of media, from drawing and painting to sculpture, Pedro Cabrita Reis’ multifaceted oeuvre has a haunting presence and poetic narrative. It is characterized by a captivating clarity that is due to the simple and basic, often found materials he uses, such as steel, concrete, glass, neon light or wood.

 

The artist’s sensibility for our complex relationship with the environment, for the fractures and peripheries of our utilitarian society, is brought to the fore in his oeuvre. Materials like the remains of building rubble or disused doors and windows for the sculptural work, and the figures in their solitude and the utopian landscapes in the recent oil paintings, get a new dignity and meaning. Intertwined in various groups of works, Pedro Cabrita Reis intellectually, sculpturally and emotionally creates and opens up new spaces.

 

His works are featured in the collections of many prominent museums, both national and international, including Tate Modern in London, the Gulbenkian in Lisbon, The Arts Club of Chicago, the Hamburger Kunsthalle, the Serralves Museum in Porto, the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) in Lisbon, S.M.A.K. in Ghent, Centre Pompidou in Paris, IVAM in Valencia, CAC in Málaga, Kunst Museum Winterthur in Switzerland, the Jumex Collection in Mexico City, the Ontario Art Gallery in Toronto and the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid.

 

Gallery Weekend Berlin will take place from 26 – 28 April 2024.
