Fora da Caixa programme revisits works and art projects that were exhibited in the past and are currently stored in public or private collections. The idea is to examine the artistic production of the last 50 years and reflect on its influence today by promoting possible interactions with the panorama of recent contemporary production.
For each edition, a different curator is invited to take charge of the research and exhibition of the historic pieces at Pivô. The programme enables these artworks to make contact again with viewers, who revisit them in a new context or experience them for the first time. Their exhibition alongside the most recent contemporary production at Pivô naturally results in intergenerational connections and we hope that any friction or synergies ultimately open up possibilities for research and critical thought.
