Pedro Cabrita Reis, one of the most important contemporary Portuguese artists, represents his homeland at the 2003 Venice Biennale. This book gives a survey of his work.

Pedro Cabrita Reis, born in 1956 in Lisbon, is one of the most significant Portuguese artists alive today. His complex oeuvre encompasses a variety of media: painting, sculpture, and site-specific installations composed of found and manufactured objects. Often employing simple and common materials, his works touch on issues of space, architecture, and memory, with a suggestive power of association that goes beyond the visual to a metaphorical level. Pedro Cabrita Reis's work brings together the subjective individual conscience and everyday life, thus inducing a reconstruction of individual and collective memory, creating an expansion of meaning, and proposing a reconstruction of the world. Pedro Cabrita Reis has been featured in international exhibitions such as documenta IX and the XXIV São Paulo Biennial, and he represents Portugal at the 50th Venice Biennale in the summer of 2003. This lavishly illustrated book provides a comprehensive overview of Cabrita Reis's work from the mid-eighties to the present and includes writings by the artist as well as a bibliography and catalogue raisonné. Exhibition Schedule: Venice Biennale June 15 - November 2, 2003
