The Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art continues its programme dedicated to the Serralves Collection with Conversations: Recent Portuguese Art. The exhibition features recently acquired or soon to be incorporated works of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, film and video made after the 2000s.

Conceived as a series of overlapping dialogues between some of Portugal’s most influential artists from the generations of the 1960s until now, the exhibition proposes narratives that draw upon formal explorations of the real, the legacies of modernism, expanded notions of painting, and visionary worlds of imagined landscapes and speculative surrealism.

Artists in the exhibition
Sónia Almeida, Leonor Antunes, Pedro Barateiro, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Alberto Carneiro, André Cepeda, Mauro Cerqueira, Pedro Henriques, José Loureiro, Jorge Molder, Musa paradisiaca, Jorge Queiroz, Diogo Pimentão, Ana Santos, Julião Sarmento, André Sousa

Conversations is organized by the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art and curated by Suzanne Cotter and Ricardo Nicolau, Director and curator of the Museum. 

A programme of public discussions is planned to run over the course of the exhibition.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue that will serve as the fifth volume in the Museum’s new series of publications dedicated to the study and dissemination of the Serralves Collection. This new publication will include reproductions and texts on the works included in the exhibition with an essay by curators Suzanne Cotter and Ricardo Nicolau.
