The Serralves Foundation, a major cultural institution in Portugal, celebrates two major milestones with a fundraising gala on Friday, September 19, 2014: the 25th anniversary of the Serralves Foundation and the 15th anniversary of the opening of the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, designed by Portuguese Pritzker prize-winning architect Álvaro Siza Vieira.
Over 500 guests, including major Portuguese entrepreneurs and executives, will gather at Serralves in recognition of the Serralves Founders and in support of the Foundation’s artistic and cultural programs. The evening begins with a visit to the museum’s current exhibitions and cocktails in the beautiful Serralves Park, followed by a special ceremony in honor of Serralves’ first President, João Vasco Marques Pinto. Following the ceremony, guests will enjoy a seated dinner featuring a menu by Chef Pedro Nunes and a ball with music by Gilles Bitton Orchestra.
Over the past 25 years, the Serralves Foundation has raised the public’s awareness about contemporary art and how it reflects the current issues of our contemporary societies. The celebration of this double anniversary underlines the intimate relationship that Serralves has forged with audiences from Portugal and around the world.
Several special exhibitions have been planned in honor of the anniversaries: 
The three-part exhibition Histories: Works from the Serralves Collection, on view through September 21, 2014 includes pieces from the collection by artists such as Danh Vo, Hans Haacke, Richard Serra, Claes Oldenburg, Dan Graham, On Kawara, Amalia Pica, Robert Morris, Sanja Iveković, Liam Gillick, Lucy McKenzie, Walid Raad, and Richard Long. Additionally, the Serralves Park features a new public sculpture commission by Berlin-based artist Nairy Baghramian.
From September 7 to 19, 2014 Chicago-based artist and musician Theaster Gates will be in “monastic retreat” with his musical ensemble The Black Monks of Mississippi at the Serralves Museum – the first presentation of Gates’ work in Portugal.
From October 9, 2014 to January 11, 2015 the Serralves Museum will organize the first museum survey of Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, which will travel to the Guggenheim Museum, from March 13 to June 3, 2015. For more information about Serralves’ exhibitions, please visit:
Designed by Portuguese Pritzker prize-winning architect Álvaro Siza Vieira, theSerralves Museum of Contemporary Art is the Foundation’s primary exhibition space. The Museumhouses the Serralves Collection of Portuguese and international contemporary art, which spans a period from the 1960s to the present and includes work by Luc Tuymans, Mel Bochner, Christopher Williams, Matt Mullican, Richard Serra, Robert Morris, among many others. The Museum aims to foster the understanding and appreciation of contemporary art and culture through it’s collection, temporary exhibitions, performances, and educational programs.
In addition to serving as the Foundation’s head office, The Serralves Villaconstitutes an important extension of the Museum of Contemporary Art and is reserved for the presentation of temporary exhibitions. Originally designed as a private residence by the architect Charles Siclis and the decorator and architect Jacques Émile Ruhlmann, the Villa, along with the Serralves Park, was commissioned by the second Count of Vizela, Carlos Alberto Cabral. Constructed on the outskirts of Porto between 1925 and 1944, the Serralves Villa is a significant example of art deco style.
The Serralves Park spans 44 acres and includes a variety of harmoniously interconnected spaces: formal gardens, woodlands, meadows and a farm. Designed by the architect Jacques Gréber in the 1930s, it constitutes a singular reference within Portugal’s landscape heritage. The Park presents a privileged opportunity to come into contact with nature and appreciate the wide diversity of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants of both native and exotic species. Visitors to the Park will encounter sculptures from the Serralves Collection that are permanently on display.
