This first exhibition in Portugal of Liam Gillick (1964, Aylesbury, UK) takes the form of an evolving presentation over one year that reflects Gillick’s long-standing engagement with questions of process, participation, collectivity and decision-making, and of which his varied approach to language and the language of space is an expression.

 

In ‘Campaign’ Gillick presents a progressive overlaying of spatial and performative situations, including sound, sculptural and text-based works that have existed as early prototypes or sketches, but have never been produced on the architectural scale for which they were initially intended. In these works, Gillick poetically addresses themes such as time, history and duration, and the visual and spatial codes of the social.

 

‘Campaign’ is organized by the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Porto and is curated by Suzanne Cotter, Director, assisted by exhibition curator Filipa Loureiro.
