Pires Vieira has become one of the most prominent representatives of artistic practices associated with processes of reflection on the creative potential of reinvention and expansion in the field of painting.

This exhibition brings together a selection of several of his most important works, as well as a series of new works and interventions produced specifically for the spaces of Museu Coleção Berardo. As a whole, “Trash – Lixo de Artista” presents a comprehensive vision of artistic intervention and proposes an interdisciplinary practice open to sculpture, installation, and performativity. Very much influenced by notions of citation and appropriation, meeting and experimentation, it incorporates criticism, irony, and subversion as strategies to explore the nature of art, the history of painting, and visual representation.
