Minimalisms and Conceptualisms of the Berardo Collection

Minimalisms and Conceptualisms of the Berardo Collection, Lisbon.

In the 1960s, the world was still recovering from WWII, while enduring the Cold War. With American imperialism and Soviet influence, new counterculture movements - against not only capitalism and consumerism but also Soviet culture - emerged and influenced the visual arts.

In this exhibition the collection starts with works from the 1960s, including the first minimalist experiments, based on ideas of plainness, simplicity and neutrality, and made with industrial materials. These works presuppose an interaction with and new forms of perception from the viewer, offering the latter new experiences. This contemporary tendency - to turn to space, to embody and/or transform the artwork - was also explored in Post-Minimalist and Conceptual practices.
