Art Collection

TFRA hold on deposit the Teixeira de Freitas Collection, a contemporary art collection that is mainly focused on the last two decades and on emerging artists. The collection also includes a group of artists and historical works from the 60s and 70s that serve as a historical matrix for the varied themes and concepts of the collection. The main focus of the collection is works that develop themes related to architecture. Still, other themes are also worked in the collection, such as literature, writing, contemporary painting and drawing.
Together with this collection, TFRA is also the depository of a collection of artist books, special and ephemeral editions that has more than 1000 works.
Since 2017 TFRA has supported the annual program of Taffimai, a publisher of artist books, multiple, and special editions, whose main focus is to support artistic productions and develop independent projects. The Janela Taffimai was born in parallel with the editorial project, consisting of an experimental space where a window is used as a space for artistic intervention. The Janela Taffimai is located in the heart of the Madragoa neighborhood in Lisbon, in the Limbo window, a plant and ceramics store. The program has 6 to 8 artist commissions per year.
