A prototype is an early form given to a material. The prototype can be understood as a model subject to modification – it can be developed, or it can remain undeveloped. Footnote 15 aims to explore the prototypical in the works of Portuguese, Polish, Brazilian, Argentinian and American artists of different generations, whose practice shares the avant-garde languages of modular systems and geometric abstraction.This project is an ongoing collaboration between Ana Cardoso – Portuguese artist based in Lisbon and New York, and Barbara Piwowarska – Polish curator based in Porto where she works at Casa São Roque.
