Voyage to the Beginning and Back: 30 Years of the Serralves Collection
Opening: July 10, 7pm

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Serralves Foundation, this exhibition features a set of works that were either part of the core nucleus assembled in the 1970s and 1980s to build the collection of the future Museum or have been specifically produced for Serralves or the city of Porto in events promoted by or in association with Serralves. Voyage to the Beginning and Back not only adds a significant page to the Serralves’ history but also underscores the special relationship with the Museum that led some of the most prominent artists of our time to generate original works.

Exhibition organized by the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art and curated by Marta Almeida, Isabel Braga and Ricardo Nicolau, Deputy Director and curators of the Museum, respectively.

30 Works for the Serralves Collection, the accompanying ninth volume of the series "from the Collection," edited by Ricardo Nicolau, will offer an insight on the history, range and ambition of the Serralves Collection and the context that witnessed its inception and growth.

A programme of tours and talks complements the exhibition.

 

The Museum as Performance
The fifth edition of The Museum as Performance will offer an encompassing programme of dance and visual and musical/sound performances, most of them national premieres. Highlighting the rich and long-standing history of Serralves as a pioneering cross-disciplinary museum, the cycle includes major works by talented artists, including Tamara Alegre, Antonia Baehr, Latifa Laâbissi & Nadia Lauro, Pedro Barateiro, Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz, Alexandre Estrela, Vasco Mendonça with Drumming – Grupo de Percussão, Nguyễn + Transitory, that further contribute to open and explore ever new paths in the relationship between live performance and the visual arts.

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