Pedro Costa

Company brings together works by Pedro Costa created over the years in collaboration with sculptor Rui Chafes, filmmakers Danièle Huillet, Jean Marie-Straub, Chantal Akerman or photographer Paulo Nozolino. 

The exhibition also includes artworks that have been featured in Costa’s films—namely by photographer Jacob Riis, painter Théodore Géricault or poet Robert Desnos—as well as paintings, drawings and films that have accompanied his life and filmmaking. Architect José Neves is the author of the exhibition’s design.

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

Company will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated publication. Co-published by Serralves and Pierre von Kleist editions, it will include texts by Jean-Louis Comolli, Andy Rector, Darlene Sadlier, Jacques Lemière, André Salgueiro Martins, José Neves, Patrick Holzapfel, Michael Guarneri, Un-Seong Yoo, Flávio Almada/Maira Zenun Almada and Jun Fujita Hirose.

Pedro Costa: Company is organized by the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Porto, coordinated by Marta Almeida and Filipa Loureiro, with the collaboration of Nuno Crespo and Marta Mateus.

Tom Emerson in conversation with the Álvaro Siza Archive

Tom Emerson, of London-based practice 6a architects is the first guest curator of "Conversations with the Archive," a new series of exhibitions aimed at placing the work of Álvaro Siza in conversation with some of the most relevant contemporary architectural practices. Invited to act as guest curators, architects are asked to select materials from the Álvaro Siza Archive and present them in connection to their own work.

Organized by the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, the exhibition is curated by Tom Emerson in conversation with Carles Muro, Adjunct Curator for Architecture Programmes at the Serralves Museum, assisted by Sónia Oliveira, Head of the Serralves Library.

Stitcomythia is a visual installation and musical performance developed in collaboration by visual artist and set designer Nadio Lauro and composer Zeena Parkins. A new anamorphic carpet designed for performers, its optical motifs (the topography in anamorphosis), the perceptual disorder that emanates from them, constitute a musical score unfolded at the scale of the space. Oscillating between dangerous obsession and bewitchment, Stitchomythia presents itself as a disquieting space/partition.

The Serralves programme of Performing Arts is developed by Cristina Grande, curator for dance and performance, and Pedro Rocha, curator for music, both assisted by Ana Conde.
