Luiz Teixeira de Freitas’ collection on display

(Madrid, Spain)

In anticipation to the ARCOMadrid celebrations, the Fundación Banco Santander presents “No habrá nunca una puerta. Estás adentro” from February 26th to June 9th 2019. Taking its title from the first verse of the poem Labyrinth by Jorge Luis Borges, the showing brings together installations, drawings, sculptures, paintings, videos and books by artists.

The exhibition is not part of any specific theme, territory, time or belief, and in order to strengthen this idea, it is organised as a labyrinth, with no beginning nor end. Therefore, the possibilities it poses are endless, dialogues are established, encounters are generated, previous assumptions are deconstructed and innumerable possibilities unfold. The labyrinth structure was produced by Monika Sosnowska.

More than 300 works by almost 200 artists will be presented, such as André Komatsu (2011 PIPA finalist), Rosângela Rennó, Marcellvs L and Pedro Motta. Installations, drawings and photographs make up most of the body of work. 

All works in the exhibition are from the private international collection belonging to Brazilian philanthropist, Luiz Augusto Teixeira de Freitas. Juror and founding partner of the Teixeira de Freitas Law Group, he lives in Lisbon and also has an ample collection of art articles and modern authors, together with his wife María Beatriz Quinella. “No habrá nunca una puerta. Estás adentro” is curated by 2016 PIPA Nominating Committee Member Luiza Teixeira de Freitas.
