School of Art

Exhibition – Eduardo Aquino: TAPUME
Exhibit: August 25 to October 14, 2022
Reception: Thursday, September 22, 5-8 p.m., Faculty of Architecture’s A2G Gallery

Tapumemeans “construction hoarding” in Portuguese. Construction hoardings conceal sites of activity while becoming sites of activity themselves. Palimpsests bearing the traces of collectively-realized, ad-hoc, and ephemeral gestures, they are tagged with graffiti, covered with posters, and scuffed and scraped by passers-by. These markings are subsequently repainted, an accrual often producing, quite unintentionally, a painterly, minimalist aesthetic.
