Serralves Museum exhibits recently acquired works from its collection
Presented in this first exhibition in the series are a selection of works that have entered the Collection of the Museum since 2009, through acquisitions, artists’ gifts or long-term loans.
PORTO.- Serralves Collection: Recent Works marks a renewed engagement with the Collection of the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art (Porto, Portugal) through a series of special exhibitions and displays throughout 2013 in the Serralves Museum and art deco Villa.

Presented in this first exhibition in the series are a selection of works that have entered the Collection of the Museum since 2009, through acquisitions, artists’ gifts or long-term loans. Representing both distinctive approaches and shared preoccupations of artists working in Brazil, England, France, Mexico, Portugal, South Africa, and the United States, this new display considers new forms of art production from the past decade.

In 1999, the inaugural exhibition of the Museum, Circa 1968, laid the foundations for the Serralves Collection in relation to a vital decade in which new attitudes towards the production of art emerged, in Portugal and internationally. Marking the Museum´s tenth anniversary, Serralves 2009: The Collection charted the growth of the Collection with reference to this earlier historic moment. This new display focuses on the early 2000s.

Moving beyond the framework of the international as a point of reference in relation to Portuguese art and artists, future presentations of the Collection will continue to celebrate interconnected and parallel art histories, as well as to examine specific contexts within a contemporary global reality. While resonating with the art of our recent past, the Collection aspires to reflect how the art of today anticipates aspects of our future.

Coinciding with Serralves Collection: Recent Works and on display in the Museum atrium is one seminal work by Alberto Carneiro, Os 4 elementos, made in 1969–70. Carneiro’s Operação Estética em Vilar do Paraíso, of 1973, is on display in the Museum Library along with a selection of the artist’s editions and ephemera from Serralves archive.

Represented Artists:
Gerardo Burmester, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Marcelo Cidade, José Pedro Croft, Carla Filipe, Rita McBride, Charlotte Moth, Paulo Nozolino, Damián Ortega, João Penalva, Fernando José Pereira, Ana Maria Tavares, Guy Tillim, Francisco Tropa, Adriana Varejão, !Von Calhau!
