Throughout history, Man has resorted to artistic creation as a universal communication vehicle, transforming art into a territory of absolute freedom – appealing to knowledge, intelligence, traditions, feelings, thus constituting true bonds of affection and sharing .
Cápsula do Tempo/Editions of the Portuguese Serigraphy Center is an exhibition of original Graphic Work that confirms the receptivity/openness of CPS to different aesthetics and trends created by great masters of the 20th and 21st centuries and young emerging artists of different nationalities, but with a common purpose – the creation of a living document of our contemporaneity for the future.
From New Figuration to Surrealism, passing through European Pop, urban art, rough art, bioart, image manipulation to artificial intelligence, these are distinct visual universes that result from the imagination of each artist who, in the exhibition presented, they testify to the Center’s aesthetic eclecticism, which has so far edited more than 3,000 works by around 600 artists of 27 nationalities, dedicated to its members.
It is in the CPS studio, a place of meeting and dialogue, that artists end up enhancing their creativity by exploring the different techniques of screen printing, engraving, lithography, photography and digital art. The result is a set of works distinguished by their boldness and plurality of aesthetics with a central purpose – that each work has a unique character and that it is a seal of guarantee, rigor and quality in the surprising context of the art world.
