The Sonnabend Collection
11, May, 2018 >> 23, Sep, 2018
Fundação Serralves
Following the presentation of ‘The Sonnabend Collection. Half a Century of American and European Art. Part I’ in 2016, the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art presents a major exhibition devoted to the Sonnabend Collection, ‘The Sonnabend Collection. Part II’.

Created by the influential art dealer Ileana Sonnabend, the Sonnabend Collection is considered one of the most important collections of American and European art of the second half of the twentieth century, representing some of the most influential western art movements of our time. While known for her support of the prime artistic protagonists of pop art, minimalism, arte povera, post-minimalism and conceptual art, Sonnabend’s engagement continued up to her death in 2007.

Part II surveys two prevalent themes present in the Sonnabend Collection: the use of photography starting with conceptual art in the 1960s until the present; and the work of artists from the 1980s which relate to pop art, minimalism, and conceptual art. The exhibition includes works by Gilbert & George, Bernd and Hilla Becher, John Baldessari, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Candida Hofer, Haim Steinbach and Ashley Bickerton, among others. A presentation of sculptures by Jeff Koons, produced between 1985 and 2012, will constitute a small retrospective exhibition of works by this iconic American artist.

Curated by Antonio Homem, the exhibition in Serralves is organized in collaboration with the Fondazione Musei Civici Venezia (MUVE), Ca’ Pesaro in Venice, and the Sonnabend Collection Foundation. At a time when the Serralves Museum is devoting increasing attention to its Collection of Portuguese and international art, the Sonnabend Collection has a particular relevance. Works from this Collection formed part of the Museum’s inaugural exhibition, ‘Circa 1968’ in 1999, several of which have remained on long-term deposit at Serralves.

Contemporary Projects: Martine Sysms presents Lessons I-CLXXX is an ongoing, incomplete video work composed of thirty-second clip – a cumulative poem whose structure evolves at random. Snapshots of disconnected experiences and subjects accumulate into a mass of fragmentary narratives, relating (directly and incidentally) to the lives of black Americans. Drawn from myriad sources – including You Tube videos, 1980s TV shows, Vines and personal footage – the Lessons form a growing corpus that Syms has been making since 2014.

Table Of Dreams
Two Contemporary Art Collections

19, Apr, 2018 >> 14, Oct, 2018
Fundação Serralves
Alberto Carneiro, Alicia Framis, Ana Jotta, Blinky Palermo, Dimitrije Basicevic Mangelos, Gabriel Orozco, Gabriela Albergaria, Giovanni Anselmo, Helena Almeida, James Lee Byars, Joaquim Bravo, Joel Fisher, José Pedro Croft, Julião Sarmento, Leonor Antunes, Luísa Correia Pereira, Marcelo Cidade, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Pedro Portugal, Silvia Bächli
‘Table of Dreams: Two Contemporary Art Collections’ features approximately 30 works from the Serralves Collection and from the Collection of the Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD),long-term loan to Fundação de Serralves - Museu de Arte Contemporânea. The title of the exhibition is taken from a poem by Alexandre O’Neill, an acclaimed poet and visual artist. ‘Table of Dreams’ is based on the table as both a metaphor and a source of living experience — a place of encounters, confrontations, communion, relaxation, and a social space, whether in the intimacy of the home or in an open and shared public space. The exhibition does not focus on a single form of artistic expression, but instead attempts to establish a confrontation between different modes of production and thinking. Through a dialogue between the two collections, the viewer is invited to engage in a plurality of universes and aesthetic, political and poetic questions. Although the two collections have very different profiles and dimensions, they also have common elements and complement each other. The FLAD’s Collection includes a considerable number of drawings by Portuguese artists, while the Serralves Collection — particularly rich in the period from the 1960 until 2000s — provides an international context for these works. ‘Table of Dreams: Two Contemporary Art Collections’ is part of a programme of exhibitions and sited presentations of works from the Serralves Collection that furthers the museum’s aim of making the collection visible and accessible to a broader public around the country.

Besides, History
28, Jun, 2018 >> 15, Oct, 2018
Fundação Serralves
This exhibition proposes a three-party conversation: It involves Go Hasegawa & Associates, based in Tokyo; OFFICE Kersten Geers and David Van Severen based in Brussels; and the history of architecture.
This conversation is at the core of one of the most interesting debates in contemporary architectural practice and examines the role of the history of architecture - from recent to more distant pasts – in the work of a new generation of architects.
By adopting the format of a conversation typical historical categories such as authorship are challenged as one architect appropriates the work of the other and represents it with his own tools, comparing it with his own work to reveal similarities and differences.
Kersten Geers, David Van Severen and Go Hasegawa belong to a generation of architects born in the second half of the 1970s who has been developing not only a consistent series of projects and works, but also maintains a clear theoretical stance. Their voices are very present and are becoming strongly influential in the broader conversation that takes place within the discipline of architecture in this second decade of the twenty-first century.

This exhibition is organized by the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) and curated by Giovanna Borasi, Chief Curator at the CCA. Curatorial adaptation by Carles Muro, Adjunct Curator for Architecture Programmes at the Serralves Museum.

Anish Kapoor
Works, Thoughts, Experiments

6, Jul, 2018 >> 6, Jan, 2019
Fundação Serralves
There are few living artists of our time who have achieved the recognition and the renown of Anish Kapoor (b. Mumbai, 1954). His vast and profound sculptural work has been conceived for and on the scale of bodies, cities and the landscape, and the myriad contexts in which they are located, from the urban scale of metropolitan centres such as London, Naples, New York and Chicago, and the rolling hillsides of England and New Zealand. In recent years, Kapoor also has been invited to present his work in some of the world’s most beautiful formal gardens, including London’s Kensington Gardens and the Palace of Versailles. The gardens and museum of the Serralves Foundation offer a platform of a different history and spatial order in which to encounter the work of the artist.
The ensemble of art deco villa designed by architects Charles Siclis with José Marques da Silva, formal gardens designed by the renowned French landscape architect Jacques Gréber, romantic gardens, fields and farm, and a contemporary museum building, library and auditorium designed by Álvaro Siza Vieira, is considered one of the most harmonious ensembles of architecture and landscape in Europe.
Within this privileged context, the exhibition presents a selection of outdoor works that are representative of Kapoor’s sculptural language for which materiality, scale and the relationships to architecture, the landscape, and the viewer are constitutive. The choice and relative siting of sculptures in the Park of Serralves have been carefully considered by the artist so as to create an itinerary through time, space, perception and meaning.
The presentation of 56 models of realised and unrealised projects conceived over the past 40 years in the central exhibition space of the Serralves Museum returns us to the intimate scale of the artist’s studio as a space of thinking and experimentation.


Anish Kapoor: Works, Thoughts, Experiments is curated by Suzanne Cotter and coordinate and organised by Marta Moreira de Almeida, Deputy Director, Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art.

In addition to the new themes, there are plenty of classics such as "To Build A Home" among others.
