Figurativos, místicos e revolucionários – Obras da Coleção Treger Saint Silvestre [The figurative, the mystical and the revolutionary – Works in the Treger/ Saint Silvester Collection]
31 may 2014 — 26 april 2015
Curator: Richard Treger e Antonio Saint Silvestre

The exhibition Figurativos, místicos e revolucionários – Obras da Coleção Treger Saint Silvestre is an exhibition project by the collector and was based on the fusion of artworks between the ‘figurative revolutions’, fantastic art and voodoo art – universes that make up the art brut collection on loan at Núcleo de Arte da Oliva. The metamorphosis of images in this show appeals to a multiplicity of dimensions in which the viewers perception is perturbed by parallel worlds filled with imaginary creatures, the oneiric and magic as well as the ancestral and ritualistic practices of the voodoo religion and cult. The exhibition features artwork by artists from several countries.

Richard Treger founded Richard Treger gallery in Paris, which he managed for over two decades. At the same time, he built an art collection, together with António Saint Silvestre, in which so-called ‘marginal’ artists occupy a prominent place.
Antonio Saint Silvestre is a collector and artist. Together with Richard Treger, he directed a gallery in Paris dedicated to art brut and outsider art, where he organized all the exhibitions. In parallel to their artistic and gallery activities, they began building the Treger Saint Silvestre Collection, now one of the main collections of art brut and outsider art in Europe.
