'There will never be a door. You are inside. Works from the Coleção Teixeira de Freitas' // Santander Art Gallery, Madrid, 26.02.2019 > 09.06.2019

Taking its title from the first verse of the poem Labyrinth by Jorge Luis Borges, this exhibition curated by Luiza Teixeira de Freitas, brings together installations, drawings, sculptures, paintings, videos and books by artists belonging to the international collection of contemporary art of Luiz Augusto Teixeira de Freitas. In order to reflect the wide variety of meanings that an art collection can achieve, the exhibition is organized as a labyrinth: it has neither a beginning nor an end, no specific theme, it is not centered in any territory, time or belief. And, nevertheless, the options that are posed are endless: dialogues are established, encounters are generated, previous assumptions are deconstructed and innumerable possibilities unfold.
 
Among the selected artists, are important international contemporary art names such as Cildo Meireles, Dahn Vo, Damian Ortega, Gordon Matta-Clark, Jonathan Monk, Jorge Macchi, Julião Sarmento, Luisa Lambri, Nina Canell, Robert Kinmont, Sanja Ivekovic, Sofia Hultén , Tamar Guimarães, Thomas Ruff and Walid Raad along with many others.Sobre o que é este item?

Anozero’17 biennal, curated by Delfim Sardo and Luiza Teixeira de Freitas, consisted in a solo exhibition split between several spaces in the city, using some of its patrimonial highlights — from the 700 years old University, to the Monastery of Santa Clara-a-Nova and all the area that is now UNESCO’s World Heritage. The exhibition worked several meanings of the idea of reparation and healing — whether in individual and subjective terms, or in collective terms —, about the city and its wounds. In this sense, some artists were invited to make specific works for the biennal, with important approaches on the city’s own history and its idiosyncrasies. 

'A Shimmer of Possibility', Fundação Eugénio de Almeida, Évora, 3.11.2017 > 25.02.2018 (Curated by Luiza Teixeira de Freitas and Filipa Oliveira)

This is a dialogue between two collections - Helga de Alvear Collection and Teixeira de Freitas Collection - that represents two unique ways of looking at and experiencing the world. The act of showing a private collection is an act of generosity, sharing and access to a group of artists and works of art that define the time and world in which we live. Included in Eugenio de Almeida Forum's annual programming program - the other - this moment of generosity can be seen as a way of breaking down barriers, an attempt to get closer to artists, audiences and institutions.
