Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves decided to bring art to a rather unexpected place: the “cruzeiros” terminal of the harbour of Leixões, one of Portugal’s major seaports. “A coleção de Serralves no porto de Leixões: Passagens” presents, thus, more than 30 pieces from Serralves Collection belonging to 26 artists from all over the world, including PIPA Prize 2012 Winner Marcius Galan.
“Passagens” is part of an extensive exhibitions and presentations program developed by the Serralves Collection to be displayed in various sites. The program aims to make the Serralves’ collection accessible beyond the doors of the museum, inviting the public to enter a less institutionalized relationship with art – and it may as well, for many, represent their first real contact with contemporary art.
“A coleção de Serralves no porto de Leixões: passagens”, group show by Ignasi Aballí, Fernando Aguiar, António Barros, Rui Chafes, João Paulo Feliciano, Carla Filipe, Lívia Flores, Marcius Galan, Runa Islam, Ana Jotta, Richard Long, Cristina Mateus, Antoni Muntadas, Bruce Nauman, Maria Nordman, Paulo Nozolino, Dennis Oppenheim, Miguel Palma, Fernando José Pereira, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Sebastião Resende, Avelino Sá, António Sena, João Tabarra, Pedro Tudela, Gilberto Zorio
