The Museum as Performance is a programme that recognizes the growing significance of performance in contemporary art.

For its second edition Serralves presents ten new performance works, most of them national premieres, by artists working in music, expanded-cinema, live-actions and conference-performances across the spaces of the Serralves Museum and Park.  

The Museum as Performance is curated by Cristina Grande, Serralves programmer of dance and performance, Pedro Rocha, Serralves programmer of music, and Ricardo Nicolau, curator of the Museum.
