The Saudade book is a companion to the Saudade project, and contains beautiful images of the art and archival pieces, conversations with the artists, and essays from artistic and historical perspectives, as well as the full story of the celebrated suitcase.
The Saudade project celebrates the EAC’s 10th anniversary as an independent foundation, and 25 years since its earliest beginnings. We invited 10 artists from around the world to draw inspiration from specific pieces within the archive. Each artist created an art piece based in some way on the EAC’s collection. These art pieces were designed to fit together inside an antique suitcase donated by one of the EAC’s founders.
