Footnote 15: A Prototype is a collaborative project organized by Barbara Piwowarska and Ana Cardoso. The conversation between the two originated at Ana Cardoso’s studio in Lisbon, and is the result of Barbara Piwowarska’s residency in Galeria da Boavista in December 2020. The artists in the exhibition share the language of avant-garde, commitment and inspiration that informs their work transversally, through the interpretation of the spatial, subjective, political and performative aspects of abstraction.
