The exhibition and the book that accompanies it encompass a reflection on the limits – which are constantly challenged and reconfigured – of art and the book to come. Paulo Pires do Vale the exhibition curator is the author of the Preface and of the five essays in the same number of the exhibition sections: With infinity in your hands; The fracture and the explosion: coming in / going out; Infinite line: never-ending story; Everything exists to become part of a book; The fire and the book to come. The volume comprises also the following contributions: Brief notes on the book, by Gonçalo M. Tavares; The book, spiritual instrument by Mallarmé, translated by Michael Gibbs, and a facsimile version of Lenz by Rodney Graham, courtesy of the artist; and a bibliography selected by Ana Barata.
The starting points for this multiple journey, this ‘wandering’, as quoted by the exhibition curator, were the collections of the Gulbenkian Museum and the Art Library’s, institutions that carry on the task of collecting initiated by the founder, to which many other works were added from Portuguese and international collections, comprising books, sculpture, installation, painting and films.
